Virtual Art Class with Deirdre Czoberek

Join local artist Deirdre Czoberek for a virtual mixed media art class.

This mixed media project is based on drawing flowers. Start gathering whatever materials you would like to use now such as old water color sets, colored pencils or markers and recycled materials such as cereal boxes, scraps of colored paper, or old art projects.

Then, brainstorm how you can take pictures of flowers and make them more relatable, edgy, or just more appealing, and create your project with Deirdre!
