“Art is an adventure into an unknown world, which can only be explored by those willing to take risks” Mark Rathko wisely said.
If you are willing to take risks, you’ll discover potential in your abilities you never thought possible.
This course will be like jumping out of an airplane. Terrifying at first but exhilarating once you get the hang of it. We’ll stimulate you, confront you and push you kicking and screaming into a much better place. And that place is where you are happy to lose control.
This course is not for the faint hearted.
