About This Class

Starts are the hardest part of creating an artwork.  In this course I present a variety of backgrounds you can create to get you started.  Experimentation is the key word and fun is the second.  You will be able to test a multitude of techniques.  Make sure that you have a room that you can make a mess in! Such fun will be had!
