Nose to Nose, by Matt Mulford

Matt Mulford  |  October 7th

We visited Matt this summer and loved his animal illustrations! He will teach a wide range of basic drawing techniques in a fun, relaxed atmosphere, using simple exercises designed to build confidence and tap your imagination. Matt considers inspiration and imagination to be the foundation for the creative life, so they are key components to his teaching.

There will also be an online Facebook group, which you can use throughout the weeks to check in with classmates and get feedback from Mike and Melissa! Register below.

Open Studio Hours Saturday afternoon!

Saturday from 12-3pm we open up the classroom area for artists to work on their own projects. They would love for more people to join them! It’s a great opportunity to be around other creative people, to see a variety of art mediums being used and to get feedback (if you want it) from others. We have a great time! It’s just a $10 studio fee, and we always have plenty of coffee and treats around. Please contact me if you are interested or have any questions. No need to register; drop in some time!
