Dec. 2-Portraiture with Lisa Cheney-$120


Checks written directly to Lisa will register you for the class. Cost is $120

Lets spend the day getting to know ourselves for who we truly are or wehre we really want to be. Don't be intimidated by the thought of having to draw a portrait, we will get around that!!! I promise. We come to the mirror to express what is in our hearts, through the use of guided exercises, collage, expressive drawing, painting and writing. 


Beginners and advanced levels are welcome.

Supply List for Student:

acrylics (Golden) don’t work as well for the techniques we will be using • Masking tape

a dream that you had recently or perhaps one that you can’t get out of your head; bits and pieces of items you can tear up and use in collage backgrounds (can be junk mail, old magazines, old book pages, scrapes of paper... nothing precious! )
