Work with acrylic paints to tap into your Expressionistic self (think Milton Avery, George Biddle, Rico Lebrun -- all artists you can see in the FAC Permanent Collection!). Expressionism is a free and uninhibited way of painting, allowing you to bypass the limitations of objectivity and paint in a totally subjective manner.

Batik is traditionally a wax-resist dyeing technique used to embellish cloth textiles, but in this class, you'll use Kinwashi rice paper, watercolor paints and wax. This process requires patience, mostly due to the dyeing process, but it's worth it!
