Creating With the Masters is a three-week immersion with master visual artists. Students will find the “master” within themselves as they create exceptional works of art. They will explore painting, drawing, mixed media, jewelry and sculpture. Students will create original works of art inspired by weekly themes with an emphasis on personal development and intensifying their portfolios.
