What we're about

The San Diego Expressive Arts Foundation Meetup is managed by the Alumni Association of the Expressive Arts Institute of San Diego. We are a community of individuals who have been formally educated in the use of the arts to nurture a vital life AND as a catalyst for change. Our meetups, created for the community at large, are facilitated by members of the Expressive Arts Alumni Association.

Expressive Arts @ 32nd & Thorn

UNTIL THE COVID-19 QUARANTINE IS OVER WE WILL BE MEETING ON-LINE. Go see our current schedule of on-line offerings: http://www.expressiveartssandiego.com/on-line-classes We will be meeting as "Scribble to Music" for those who do not have paint at home. You ALL have paper and pen!!! Go to: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/scribble-to-music-wednesday-nights-tickets-100851200656 PAINT TO MUSIC • Wednesdays, 6:00 – 7:30 p.m., $25 Let the music move you to play with color and shape and get your creative juices moving! When you work fast there is less time for the critic to jump in! No experience needed, you set your own pace. You do not need to bring anything, all materials are provided. All you need to bring is your desire to play with paint! It is all about the process, not the end product! And, as a painter, I will pass along my knowledge to you in ways that will help you experiment and explore so you can learn to paint in an intuitive way, following what feels good so you find your own personal style. This easy class will help you release stress from your day, get messy if you want, even throw paint while the music keeps your mind still and your creativity moving. The more you come the better you get at letting go and playing! Wear comfortable clothes that you don’t mind getting messy. There are aprons and paint shirts available. No previous art or painting experience necessary. You do not need to know what to paint. I will get you started! Painting to Music, an on-going experiment with following the music and our pleasures to arrive somewhere that we never expected. $25 Fee also includes Open Studio 7:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. Go here to pre-pay: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=QK8WDD7QVQQUN
