It’s that time of year when I wrap up my kids summer art classes and start our women’s creativity and art sessions.
We’ve had such huge interest in the adult classes that I decided to offer them twice a month instead of just once monthly. So, on the first and second Sunday of each month, starting September 11, you have a fabulous opportunity to stretch your creative muscles in a small (6 student) class that’s guaranteed to knock your socks off and inspire you.
This year our Sunday Art Sesh classes are in short series of two, three or four. Sign up for all of the classes in a series to get the most out of your time. For example, the self portrait series is very in-depth (and transformative) and if you miss one, you’ll miss a big chunk of the experience.

Wow! What an awesome selection of classes. My goal for the coming year is to actually take one of your classes. The April class has my name all over it 🙂 But maybe another one too…something really radical!
really radical? isn’t that what all my sessions are, heehee.
If you are home in November, Phyllis, the dream series is going to be good. Link will come out in email later today or tomorrow.
Yay please sign me up for the dream series classes. Looking forward to the experience
Betty, can you come in to the gallery to pay for the Dream series classes? I haven’t made a signup item in our online store yet, so in order to reserve your spot you will need to pay. You can use a card or check. <3
Betty, I emailed you the link for the Dream series. Hope you received it. <3 Maureen
