Flower Power

This is a series of classes that are inspired by flowers.  Spend Friday afternoons creating gorgeous pieces of art work in different medias that take you inside flowers! Beginning with large and loose, we'll create a watercolor floral still life, explore blind contour drawings of flowers on experimental watercolor backgrounds, and dive into the center of flowers following Georgia O'Keefe's lead with tempera paints.  As always, no experience needed!


Watercolor Tricks & Kandinsky

Play with a variety of fun easy ways to work with watercolor.  Then we'll look at the artwork of Wassily Kandinsky for inspiration in adding lines & creating a floating musically inspired painting/drawing.


Organic Soap Making!

Create 12 bars of artistic, organic, customized soaps. Add essential oils, flowers, color, and more! All materials are provided, including gift wrapping.  These make elegant and thoughtful gifts, and making and using your own soap is a great way to pamper yourself! This is a fun class to do with family and friends or to offer as a gift!


Textured Abstractions

We will use a trick to create a textured interpretation of an abstract piece of art using plaster and wood followed by acrylic paint tricks.  These pieces will look and feel intricate but the process is a fun one to learn!


Surrealistic Collage & Poetry

Want to get away from it all? This is the perfect time to find out about Surrealism, and indulge in an artistic escape! We'll explore found poetry and create collages that form an alternate universe with interesting characters. 


Pattern-based Design & Color

Learn about a user friendly way to increase your pattern library, and create colorful lyrical designs. Learn about ways to use color affectively, and create a series of pieces using different themes and techniques.
