Home Studio *Virtual Studio* with Gria Shead

By Gria Shead
Home Studio
is an in-house studio class carrying on from the previous studio-based classes. The studio will be a core theme in developing your own space for working no matter where you are.
Over the course of nine weeks, themes will be discussed and projects set. You will be given individual guidance and support to broaden your scope, strengthen your ability and enhance your studio practice. 
 
The Virtual Studio learning experience with Gria Shead
 
Gria is present throughout the duration of the 3-hour class. The classes are for a set number of students so that there is enough time for everyone’s questions and needs to be responded to straight away. Gria will give demonstrations in real time during the class. She will observe individually and offer guidance and suggestions to help you develop your practice. The classes are not pre-recorded; nor will they be recorded while they are happening.
