It’s Winter, but We’re Still Making Art in our Fall Kids Art Series
It’s a 4-Studio-Sesh After School Kids Art Camp and if you’re a kid who loves art-making, you’re probably having as much fun as camping. Once a week for four weeks is just enough to have a fun taste of some new art mediums and methods. We’ll have a Winter 4-Studio-Sesh After School Kids Art Camp sometime in January and February. Subscribe to the 1+1=1 Classroom email updates to be first to know about the classes when we set the schedule and make live registration links. Subscribe here.
Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays for the first two weeks, we explored a new — and almost addictive — printmaking method, then used our prints to make collages. Next we’re making layered paintings using multiple sheets of plexiglass. We’re learning about foreground, background, translucence and transparency, composition and color. We’ll mount the plexi sheets on wood stands so the layers can be viewed through each other. Hard to explain. I’ll post photos as soon as we have those ready to show off! In the meantime, please enjoy some of the prints and collages made by our art students. Ages range from 7 to 12.
Junk Journals with Judy Kline: $80, limited to 6 participants, date TBA
READY FOR A RELAXING AFTERNOON OF MAKING ART IN A SMALL GROUP of CREATIVES LIKE YOU?
Well, we have just the thing for you! At the end of this one-day workshop you will have a fabulous fabric-covered junk journal with lots of pages and pockets to write thoughts, collect quotes, poems or lists and loads of unlined papers for sketching. Make one for yourself, or to gift to someone special.
Using junk mail and other materials from our instructor and things you may have lying around the house you can make a completely unique and somewhat quirky junk journal. Judy Kline’s style of junk journals have ties to hold everything together – and truly, by the time you’ve filled your journal you’ll be happy to have the tie!
We Offer Unique, Creative Classes and Workshops for Adults
During the exceptionally weird years of 2020/2021 we put our adult workshops on the back burner because we wanted to keep our staff and customers safe from Covid-19. We hope 2022 is different and that we will be able to meet in person for half day or weeklong workshops in our lovely classroom behind the art gallery!
In the meantime, we are keeping a list of folks who are interested in specific workshops, and they will have the first opportunity (we'll call you) to register when we do figure out dates. If you would like to be on a workshop list, please stop by the gallery and ask Maureen or our gallery staff. And ... subscribe to our Love Notes to be notified by email when the workshop dates are set. Thank you! Workshops planned for the 2021/2022 season include The Art of Self Portraits; 5-day Printmaking Series; Working with Dreams through Art; Intuitive Painting; Crown Making, Junk Journals; Smash Books; Meditative Sketching.
