Learn to embrace the beauty of your mistakes, negotiate the curves that all artists come across in their work, utilize a range of materials, and deploy innovative strategies for conquering a blank page or empty canvas.

Local artist Amy Oestreicher will be leading a series of six media media creativity workshops at Westport Continuing Ed on Thursdays from 7pm to 9pm. No art experience is required – just the willingness to get messy, have fun and learn the art of improvisation!
