    Instructor: Rita Carpenter

    Ages 9–12. Do your children like art? Would they like to learn more about two famous artists from the 1800’s such as Claude Monet and Georges Seurat? Monet was an Impressionist artist, while Seurat was a Post-Impressionism artist. Your children will study two paintings by each artist. The paintings each encapsulate the same idea, yet use very different techniques. We will study Monet’s work and how it explores light and color. The Seurat technique in Pointillism is an art form that uses dots to create a painting. Together we will have fun creating several pieces of art. Fee includes all supplies.

    What is a Breeze Chime? A wind chime that can withstand a breeze, but not a gale! In this 2-part workshop, students will learn the basics of working with fused glass, such as cutting and shaping the glass, applying frit (finely ground glass), and layering different colors to create a design. They will also learn about proper safety practices when working with the specialized equipment needed for fused glass, such as breakers and cutters. Pat will guide you through the process of planning and composing your Breeze Chime design, and will provide tips and techniques for choosing and combining different colors and textures of glass. Once you’ve assembled your wind chime, you’ll learn how it will be fired in a kiln to fuse the glass together. In the second portion of the workshop, we will assemble the wind chimes, using wire and beads. Your completed Breeze Chime will be ready to take home and display! No glass cutting experience required. Safety glasses and masks will be provided if working with powdered glass. Closed-toe shoes will be required.

    What intention are you bringing into your creative process? Is there something blocking your expression? This intuitive painting class will begin with a guided meditation focused on calming the mind to create the stillness and clarity that allows you to access your creative inspiration, giving it the space it needs to float to the top. The meditation will be followed by some guidance on the process of allowing each layer of paint inform what comes next during your intuitive painting experience. It’s about self-love as you embrace the mystery, exercise non-attachment, explore & express your voice, and play with paint. Intuitive painting is about letting go of fear or expectations to allow your painting to evolve based on your heart callings, visions, and play. That includes the happy accidents and the messes! All supplies provided.

    Note: Kids 7 and under should be accompanied by an adult.

    July- Art Roulette This session consists of a fun, challenging, art game! Everyone begins with a canvas and a medium. Every couple minutes (will be decided after headcount) we will pass the media to the seat next to us, the end result will bring us a community piece that holds an abundance of styles and passions. Each artist will take home the canvas they began with. This game provokes creativity as we build off of our peers, feel inspired by them, and add your mark. You’ll gain the experience working with multiple mediums and facing the challenge of an open ended intention.

    Register 2 days before each class.

    So, you've created your masterpiece, or something you want to share anyway. Now what? How do you figure out the right lighting, the framing, the background? Do you need a special camera? Do you have a tripod? Do you need a remote? Bring a finished piece, 2D or 3D, that you would like to figure out how to capture in an image to use for your portfolio, your online shop, or promo for your next class. As a multimedia artist, Nicole has picked up a lot of great tips for photographing your artwork, and will bring several tripod and lighting options to learn. In addition to your finished piece, bring the camera you intend on using to photograph your work.

    Instructor: Cindy Bear

    Ages 16+. Where do you start when doing a still life project? This class will provide you with the tools you need to set up your still life that will give you the picture that you are hoping for, regardless of the medium. In the first session, you will learn how to group objects, create interesting compositions and gain helpful hints to avoid common mistakes. A check list will be shared so future still life compositions can be created using these same principles. One of the activities that this class will use to assist with your still life composition is simple grifaille (black and white to identify lights and darks for shading). The instructor will use photoshop and an overhead camera for you to see every concept that is being shared in the class. The second session will be the actual painting of the still life that you have created and effectively identified lights and darks. Both of these classes are full days so bring a sack lunch. You will be allowed time to spend some relaxation time outside to enjoy your lunch break. Supplies needed for this class: 9x12 Arches 140 lb. paper, watercolors of Payne’s Gray and Burnt Sienna, plus the colors already in your palette.
