Program Description:

Elaine will develop a program to meet the needs of the individuals involved.  Whether working in clay, drawing or painting, there is always problem solving involved which keeps the brain busy and happy.  Students will be taught sequential skills in a group setting of approximately 10 students.  Each session will be approximately 90 minutes.  There will also be opportunities for asynchronous activities where students can complete assignments on their own time.  There will be a culminating event which will allow the students to socialize and share their completed work with others.
