    NEW CLASS!

    Tuesday, July 9, 16, 23, 30

    Facilitator: Rebecca Downing Pelley

    Intermediate to Advanced students will enjoy instruction tailored to personal interests. These two hour classes are limited in size and designed to suit student goals and ensure progress. Students select art media with which they are most comfortable to pursue individual directions.  If you've already taken a variety of classes in drawing and painting but seek more, or if you've tabled your passion as life intervened, we've got a home for you here. Guided Adventures assumes a comfort level with drawing and/or painting and is not for beginners.

    You don't have to have any previous artistic ability to "Tangle". Even though a tangling creation can look intricate and complicated, once you learn how its done you'll realize how simple it is. By using repetitive patterns and deliberate strokes tangling is an easy way to create beautiful pieces of art. Studies show that tangling increases mental retention, stimulates creativity, improves ones mood, and can be calming during stressful situations. Its like taking a nap and waking up refreshed! Plus, this meditation art form is fun! Please bring a pack of sketch artistic tiles, an 11x14 mixed media pad, B, B3, B4 pencils and 005, 01 and o8 black markers. All are available at area art & craft stores.
