painting to music

Spend an hour painting along to music! A space to explore and freely express how music makes you feel. Each session will feature a different type of music.

Participants will focus on responding to the music played and could register for different sessions to explore the effects of different genres on their creations. All emphasis will be on creative expression, not on creating a finalized work of art. All supplies are included.
