We've got two exciting adult "summer camp"s this week! These are multi-class series that really get in-depth with a topic, allowing you to come away with TONS of newfound knowledge and inspiration!
Color Exploration Camp goes deep into how pigments interact with each other in paint, but you'll also create and mix your own pigments, paints, and inks, to get a truly practical understanding of it all! Never be confused about how and why two colors somehow make brown again! (July 18-21, 10am-noon daily)
Making Marks Camp will help you discover new drawing techniques, different ways of approaching a drawing, and inspiration, but it's also great lessons in tackling perfectionism, art block, and your inner critic. From beginners to seasoned pros, everyone has something to gain in this series! (July 18-21, 2-4pm daily)
Both camps start TOMORROW, Tuesday, July 18th, so snag those last spots ASAP!
