Class Overview

Intuitive Art: Paint for Your Life | Seattle Central College - Continuing EducationExplore your creativity in this inspiring class designed to make use of all of your senses!

During this dynamic, hands-on class, you'll crawl under the surface of different artistic disciplines, including dance, writing, movement, painting, and music, to discover your unique form of creative self-expression.

We'll engage with different visuals and specifically curated music selected to inspire your creative process in a highly encouraging and supportive environment.

You'll work on your own and within groups to discover new methods of expression, and you'll have the opportunity to share your work with others during the final class.
