word play

Alisa Burke


I love drawing and painting but I also really love using words, lyrics, quotes and my own writing and thoughts on those surfaces. In this class we will explore a variety of different ways to use letter, words and writing in your surfaces.

From handwriting and expressive free writing to layering, color and composition- I will be sharing 30 creative techniques, prompts and exercises to transform those words into art!
