Join artist James Sheehan for a deep dive into his passion of small scaled artworks.
During this intensive course you’ll learn how other artists have used scale to tell stories, evoke emotion, and alter compositions. After you discover the theories and philosophies behind these works, you’ll have a chance to put it into practice in your own work under the supervision of James. This class is a perfect intensive for artists working at home with smaller work spaces.
