Rena Brouwer - Guest Artist for March WVAS Program

 



A program of play and design!  Rena will be doing several demos to help “jump start” the creative process and define approach and painting design.  Once the demos are complete she will have a short Q & A session and then will challenge participants to use this creative approach on their own and submit their work for viewing at the May meeting.  Also, any work you’ve created after viewing Rena’s creative approaches, can also be shared during a “show and share” and gentle critique at the 5/18/21 meeting.https://www.renabrouwer.com/
