There were many decisions to be made in picking and adding color to the shirt designs.

It’s been a real joy to watch the creative journeys that the class members have undertaken these past few weeks.

In the words of Edward Hopper, “If you could say it in words there would be no reason to paint”, this class has begun to learn the language of paint.  I’m looking forward to our last class to see the resolution of their paintings.
