That allows us to throw expectations out the window and play. We will use a combination of ink and watercolor, and a highly unusual way of holding the brush, to create this meditative artwork. Absolutely no artistic experience or skill is required. For ages 12 and up. Registration required, registration begins Monday, February 12.
