SUBDIVISIONDo Do you want to liven up your hooking using stronger and brighter colors and/or embellishment? Move out of your comfort zone and attempt a wild and fun portrait. Cheer up a piece by incorporating vibrant colors in the subject or adding a jazzy border.

Funky fabulous full saturated colors will be the focus of the class. It will be all about experimenting with a bolder palette, exploring new techniques and having fun.
Bring a piece you have already started, or design a new one.

Anything goes.
