It’s a Process

Artists are unique in their approach and style, much of which is developed through observation, experimentation and, quite frankly, trial and error. There are no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ ways to create art, that is uniquely the artists’ approach. On Saturday, Jan. 21, at 2 p.m., Holly will demonstrate her approach to creating small flow abstract pieces using colored resin.
