About This Class

:: CLASS DESCRIPTION::

Creativity has the unique ability to unwind your mind in the midst of stresses life throws at you.

In the course of weeks of series creative blocks, Esther, who is a digital artist primarilydecided to start using her unopened gouache and watercolor for stress relief.
