Workshop Series: Exploring the Creative Process

Thursday, February 2, 2017

This workshop series for adults explores the fundamentals and tools of three artistic media: drawing, watercolor painting, and printmaking. Designed for creatives, non-creatives, and aspiring creatives of all levels, class projects encourage students to experience and benefit from the creative process both individually and as a group.

Instructor Ken Hillberry has been teaching art and creativity to adults for over 30 years. His teaching philosophy is to foster engaging, experiential, practical, and supportive environments for the lifelong learner that tap into each individual’s unique creativity.
