Inspired by the work of Mary Vernon (Dallas) and Chuta Kimura (Japan), Billie Bourgeois will lead artists in a space-making abstract painting adventure.  Using drawing, printmaking, stenciling and collage, students will create spatial relationships by engaging scale change, overlapping, a horizon line and grids.   Join us for a playful and fun experience!  Learn to manipulate space to create depth, dimension and interest.  Let's learn from the masters of abstraction and impressionism!

Billie Bourgeois is a supremely talented artist who’s been teaching art for the past 50 years!   She’s gifted, generous, knowledgeable, fun, and can bring out the best in a newbie painter or the most seasoned!
