Today’s program has been postponed.

Registration deadline: March 25

Get in contact with your mind and spiritual self by making a visual representation of your connection to the universe. Using oil paint, inspirational music, a purposeful journey through the Museum’s Collection, and an experimental use of color, design, and perspective, create your own cosmically-inspired composition on canvas.

Instructor R. Bruce Brennan teaches painting to students of all ages. Influenced by 1960s countercultural philosophy and world travels, his luminous, atmospheric landscapes are exhibited throughout the US. His formal art education includes the Cooper Union and Paris’s Ecole des Beaux Arts, and he holds an undergraduate degree from the San Francisco Art Institute.
