Lucja’s vision is to live in a world where art is allowed to flourish and be recognised as a valuable and necessary part of human existence and where every individual is allowed to express their own innate talent and then be able to share this with their community.
Lucja is dedicated and passionate about improving the quality of life for every person who is ready to be empowered by their own creative process which then leads through collaboration to a sharing of their voice through exhibitions of their art to their community.
We will use water-based mediums such as watercolour, gouache, acrylic and even inks to explore the creative process in order to tap into exciting and original forms of creative expression. We will incorporate artistic techniques, principles and elements to pull up works in order to resolve contrasts and ambiguities. Foremost be prepared to have fun, learn loads and expand your own boundaries. Brave beginners are welcome, as well as experienced artists will find Lucja’s course exhilarating.
