Project Description

Show us your abstract art!

After taking the class (and maybe during) you'll be rock-n-roll ready for creating some awesome alternative pieces of art. And I want to see them! Upload them to your project space as you go, or all at once at the end!

Follow the 5 step-by-step tool-combo lessons, and then push yourself with the 3 challenges at the end of the class to create something with your touch in it.

Tell us what you enjoyed. Tell us about your process. And don't be shy of posting your messes and experiments. I want to see it all!
