    I took the Intro to Abstract Acrylic class with Kristen. It was a wonderful experience! She is a very kind and helpful teacher. I learned a lot during this class. I’m excited to continue to learn here.

    Abstract Drawing was my first experience at Art On 30th. I was not disappointed in any of the categories listed but the surprise was the energy and time I put into my art at home as a result of the structured environment—a needed psychological kick.
