Expressive Painting and Drawing

Instructor: Laura Lanchantin

This course is designed to strengthen each student’s ability to express and evoke emotion through painting and drawing.

Laura is a local plein air/abstract painter and will guide you to create new work in the medium of your choice though techniques in color theory and composition, while also giving lessons in “seeing” and finding your self-confidence.
