Virtual ART ROAD TRIP with Marlene Lowden

We invite friends, colleagues or family members to join us for this three part video series. Use a long weekend road trip with your BFF as a metaphor for this online art adventure. There are 3 parts, each part invites companions to work together and support each other to create art studies. The exercises will push everyone a little out of their comfort zones and if they are practicing artists, out of their normal mediums. Don’t worry if you’re a beginner, this is for your too! We suggest that you and your art buddy do the exercises over the course of 3 days.
