Class Description
Fear is often what holds us back from creating with gusto! In this class Susanne Clark will give you fresh and playful ways to enter into creating non-objective work.

You will learn how to create interesting texture and pattern, develop both structure and randomness into your work and incorporate a variety of mixed media.
About the Artist
A New Zealander by birth Susanne has lived and exhibited in many different places before moving to Toronto in 2009. Her work is non-objective, colourful, multi-layered and textured.

Primarily a painter, Collagraph Printmaking is her other passion. Her paintings and Collagraph Handprints are in collections in NZ, Canada, Europe and the USA.
