"One of the best ways for people to learn art and use it as an expression is to take real moments or memories from their lives," says RAZ studio manager and teacher Hagit Damto. "People break through their limitations and learn faster showing/telling their story."
This workshop is designed to be part of a certificate program. The opportunity to attend and observe art class instruction at RAZ is available if you want to teach art at the studio. We are looking for teachers.
