MUSICAL-ART FOR ADULTS
Watch My Video to Learn More!
My Passion & Mission
Many of the Modern artists such as Klee, Kandinsky, and De Buffet studied the artwork of very young children and the insane. Their purpose was to rediscover their own innocence of naïve, ‘primitive’, raw feelings and emotions.
My passion and mission with Musical-Art is to bring this discovery and inner-journey out in my adult students in a fun, creative and enlightening experience using a combination of music, art, and ideas.
My teaching method over the last thirty-two years involves understanding that musical- art is emotional, mental, physical and spiritual.

Intuitive Abstract Painting
Learn to literally “let go” and be free of convention as you begin painting from within. Learn how to get past your fears and allow your inner self to create what comes naturally. Work intuitively to paint abstractly on canvas using art materials such as acrylic paint, charcoal, and various textured mediums. Explore the history of Art’s modern and naive painters, along with concepts behind non-representational painting (painting without recognizable imagery). This class is great for those who want to explore their own voice as a painter, take creative risks, think out of the box, and gain confidence in their own way of painting. Materials list provided upon registration.

Some woods carry sounds within- with grains of quality
They’re turned into instruments, that become singing trees
When the wood begins to sing, the sibling trees can hear
And their branches swell with blossoms, rejoicing far and near
