In this one-time class, artists will paint a colorful and dreamy underwater scene as if they were swimming in the sea! #creative

Class experience

My goal is for artists to have fun creating colorful artwork from a new perspective using a combination of art media they may not have tried and to continue to experiment on their own.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from UCLA and have enjoyed working with vibrant colors through markers, paints, and chalk pastels. My personal style is more abstract, graphic, and even impressionistic and this is reflected in my own artwork over the years. I worked with young learners for several years when I was in charge of a volunteer- lead art program that focused on art elements and the art masters. We did many different types of projects and used different media and techniques each month. Sharing these colorful and simple ideas with young artists is exciting and I often learn from them as well as they share their ideas and express themselves in new ways.
Homework Offered
There’s no specific homework, but artists may want to try other designs and blend more colors for new compositions.
