Excellent teacher in the way she led the group and excellent activity that she led. Group was friendly and at ease.
It seemed a bit expensive.

The freedom given to draw or express in colors, shapes etc. a creative visualization given by the teacher. No good/bad evaluation. Joy expressed by the teacher as work is shared.

This has been a good class to get me started. I now sit down 2 or 3 times a week in the evenings, turn on some good music that the instructor introduced me to, and make collages. I enjoy the creativity of choosing images, cutting them out, pasting them on card stock and sending them to friends. I love Lauren's enthusiasm. Thank you for making this class free. I had many barriers to overcome even signing up for an art class and making it free meant I had NO EXCUSE to not sign up!!!
I would like for Lauren to choose different music in each session, not the same music as the previous time. This has introduced me to beautiful, new music. The only downside is I can hear her typing on her keyboard and I find it distracting. I wish she would introduce us to a different technique or style in each class, maybe for about 10 minutes - whether we use the technique or not - making it optional to use.
About Richmond Art Center
Richmond Art Center is the largest visual arts center in the East Bay of the San Francisco Bay Area, delivering exciting arts experiences to people of all ages who reflect the diverse richness of our community. We do this through onsite Studio classes and Exhibitions, and offsite Art in the Community programs.The Richmond Art Center originated in 1936, when local artist Hazel Salmi, who worked for the WPA, traversed the streets of Richmond with a suitcase packed with art supplies, eager to teach art to anyone interested. Today, everything we do at the Center continues to breathe life into Salmi’s original vision: That within every person lives an artist.
