ARTree Class Series a Success


On October 16th The ARTree completed our fall class series called The Many Faces Of Art, at the Santa Clarita Sports Complex. The classes offered a variety of materials and techniques to help students explore the human face in art. Each class began with a slideshow, providing insight into the artist whose works inspired the day’s lesson. Classes included watercolors, plaster, pastels, collage, mixed media, ink, and even non-verbal facial expression, pictured here.
