The Playful Muse: Mixed Media Painting
     at Susan's Studio in Sebastopol

Put the PLAY factor back into your painting. Learn to recognize your intuitive voice as it takes you in new directions. Each session adds a new mixed media painting technique to your repertoire, pushing the boundaries of inks and acrylics, adding textures, collage, image transfers and more. Meditation and writing are added to the mix to evoke that powerful Muse energy!
