The Freedom School is a friendly and supportive group where people can enjoy art making in the company of like-minded people. With a focus on self-expression, The Freedom School Painting Program encourages participants to be experimental and trust their intuition and inner guidance in the process of art making. Many graduates of the Program have gone on to become multi-award winning artists with some exhibiting through Giles’ two galleries. The Program is open to anyone interested in exploring painting as a process of self-expression and self-discovery.
