SoulCollage is a surprisingly joyful and satisfying process of creative self-discovery for all. No background in art or specific artistic talent is required. If you know how to use scissors and glue you will succeed in this workshop. All collage images and materials will be provided by the facilitator. You will be introduced to the basic process and then be encouraged to rip, snip and paste to your heart’s content in your own way at your own pace. You will make several meaningful cards to take home with you. You will be amazed by what you create with your own hands! Your cards will beautifully reflect your individuality and showcase your innate wisdom. The experience of creating SoulCollage cards is empowering and transformative. Later, you may decide to continue the process and learn how to create your own personal mindfulness practice with your cards. Come explore SoulCollage as part of your journey. This is just the beginning!

 

 

Let’s Start a Daily Art Journal
Instructor: Kim Dubay

1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Same class is being offered on multiple dates.
$40 per student
Minimum 4, Maximum 8

Class Description: Have you ever thought about keeping a journal? Not the kind you write your thoughts and feelings in, but an “Art Journal”. You’ll learn how to document your days with basic drawing, painting, and pasting. Join me and I’ll share how I create a journal that’s personal and meaningful. I have made art in a journal (or I call it my “visual diary”) for over 5 years now…everyday! I paint, draw, stamp and collage papers from my everyday life. They have become my diary, photo album, scrapbook and art journal all in one, leather bound book. My completed journals will serve as examples to students and show the evolution of my work. I’ll share some techniques and tricks for keeping up with a daily art practice. It’s all about establishing simple habits and the process doesn’t take as much time as you think.

Please bring: a permanent fine tip black pen, some double sided tape or a glue stick, a blank book* and any personal papers or photos you’d like to include. I’ll bring basic art supplies to share, no expensive art supplies needed. Instructor will have a few blank journals and pens for sale….

 

 

Sip & Paint Watercolors Night
Instructor:  Kit Linnell
Friday, June 14  
6PM till we feel like quitting
Price per student:  $40
Minimum number of students:  3     Maximum:  8

Class Description:  Drink like an adult, and paint like a kid.  This will be a fun evening of producing an abstract watercolor – no previous experience in watercolor required AT ALL. You will fling salt, fling paint, use knives, scratch the paper, use plastic wrap, use tissue paper, use a lot of water, use almost no water….and laugh and have fun.  You will leave with an abstract watercolor painting, by either following along with what the instructor does, or exploring your own inner child.  And while you are busy having fun, you’ll actually learn some basic watercolor techniques painlessly. Bring your adult beverage of choice, we’ll provide the glasses and appetizer.  We’ll provide arts supplies, though if you have an exacto knife please bring it. Sign up with a friend or loved one, or an enemy you want to be friends with.  Oh, and wear something you don’t  mind getting messy in.

WATERCOLOR PALETTE – I like Robert E. Wood palette as it has large wells for paints, but any other palette is sufficient. 
SKETCH PAD – 12” X 15”,  Also a ruler, water container, kneaded eraser, #2 pencil, paper towels.
If you are not working on a block of paper, you will need a BOARD OR PLEXIGLASS to tape paper onto and masking tape. If you would like to bring in something you are currently working on and have a question on, please feel free to do so.  ANY QUESTIONS, e-mail rbrunnock@hotmail.com
