Inspired by the avant-garde techniques of artist Richard Jackson, this class places the emphasis on process before product. Students will experiment, explore, and will assemble recycled materials to make a sculpture that moves and creating “accidental” abstract paintings.

Her reverence for nature and love of the outdoors has brought her to Sacramento, which inspire her choice of subjects.
