Connect with a group of art lovers and delve deep into the arts. If you are looking for an art place where you can work individually and still get some feedback, this is the place for you. All skill levels are welcome. The class consists of a quick art discussion on different subjects every week, followed by a group critique and commentaries on each artist's projects; the rest of the time is working time. There is no instruction.
About the Instructor
Maurice Casas’ art is a result of several years of experimentation and a search for identity. It is the fusion of these two disciplines plus his personal sensitivity that have given him a new vision for color and design. His work creates an environment of invented realms and is juxtaposed between past and present. He uses semi-abstract and figurative mark-making to create tension between reality and fanciful. Using Pre-Columbian Art and Iconography and elements of Architecture, Maurice has developed a unique and colorful language with its own vocabulary. Originally from Colombia in South America, Maurice has attended Colegio Antonio Narino and New York City Technical College. He has lived in the United States for 35 years where he has worked as a Visual Artist and Architectural Designer.
