The Freedom School is a friendly and supportive group with a focus on having fun and feeling free to express yourself. It provides a nurturing environment where people can enjoy art making in the company of like-minded people. With a focus on self-expression, The Freedom School Painting Program encourages participants to be experimental and trust their intuition and inner guidance in the process of art making. The Program is open to anyone interested in exploring painting as a process of self-expression and self-discovery.
