Can also do printing (by hand/etching press), sculpture, photography, etc.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:
Everything is taught with the view to increasing technical knowledge so it becomes automatic and you can focus on being creative. This might be as simple as holding a pencil correctly or the science of how paint works and interacts with mediums and surfaces. It is NOT really complicated, it just means you understand all your materials and techniques better.
Depending on your needs, experience and current project you might be taken step by step through exercises to teach you a specific skill or given feedback as you work.
As a group we might provide feedback on someones work.
