Break the Rules of Your Medium – NEW!

Stuck in a rut? Trying to find a new groove? Through a series of discussion, and class-guided creative assignments, we’ll take a critical look at the framework of rules that we as artists create and follow in our work. This class is open to artists working in any medium. Expect to complete creative exercises outside of class.
