Mad Skills

I love taking art classes and workshops! I like trying my hand at different types of art as well as continue to learn more about and master techniques I know. There is no shortage of great classes and workshops in the Albuquerque area! I would like to list classes on a monthly basis. Some of these are ongoing and others are one-time-only events.

I would also love your help in letting me know when and where great classes and workshops are! If you know of a great class or workshop, please post in the comments section!
