Expressive ART from the HEART

Monday, February 24, 2020, Hilton Resort at Bell Rock

We invite you to explore making art from your heart!

Martha Reich Braden will guide you in expressing yourself using watercolors, colored pencils and black sharpies on paper. We will capture your memories and experiences, with the creation of your very own "Art From the Heart " postcards! Learn how to use color, space and expressive lines and brushstrokes to describe what you see with your own eyes and feel with your heart. No need for previous experience or ability to draw a straight line, just bring your willingness to have fun!

Outdoor art-making, weather permitting.
