Then, come back for more!

Light and Shadow Collage with Jess Graff – Feb 12

The art of paper-cutting is found in cultures around the world. Participants in this workshop will explore techniques for drawing with blades to create layered story-filled artworks from their imaginations. Techniques will include safe blade usage, drawing skills, and take participants from start to finish to create beautiful images that play with light, shadow, negative space, and story. Information about creating mini travel cutting kits will be included.

Polymer and Copper Jewelry with Meredith Arnold – February 26

Discover creating glass-like effects, patterns and textures, combined with copper wire to create pins or earrings! The instructor will provide a variety of texture tools for you to design your unique pieces of beautiful jewelry for you, or as a gift for someone special.

Persian Patterns with Amina Quraishi – March 11

Geometric patterns are one of the major components of Islamic art, which reached its peak of perfection in Persia. Learn how to draw and paint a star-shaped tile pattern from 15th century Persia using just a compass and ruler. Then transfer the pattern to watercolor paper and paint a beautiful, final piece.

Art Journaling with Christine Soja – March 25
The journal is a free place to experiment, express and explore your inner landscape. The instructor will guide you through multiple creative ways to engage in art journaling using many materials you may already have at home: ink, acrylic and watercolor paints, collage, stencils, markers and more. Students will create a safe place to engage in new possibilities while encountering resistance, self-criticism and the satisfaction of making art anyways! All materials provided, just bring your own journal.
