Amazing local artist, Joseph Wennberg, will guide members through an artistic voyage.

With these tools you will begin to apply paint in a random process, although under the control of things on your mind. Halfway through the process, members will stop and reflect on their uncompleted work for a brief discussion before they proceed to completion. Sculpting will be added with palet knife, as well as additional colors and brush work by Joe if necessary. When completed the original art will be signed by creator and then examined under a magnifying glass.
