Our teachers have been very busy!

If you check out our web site you'll see that all of our teachers have been very creative lately.
These are just a few of the upcoming classes. And remember, you have to click on the arrow next to the month to go to the classes for August and September. Here is a line up of our upcoming July classes. This class is on Saturday, July 26th and is taught by Caroline Miller. This is a Tim Holtz inspired class that demonstrates the art of collaging, waxing, inking and junking! You will make two hinged 5x7 canvases that you will blend distress ink, collage and then wax with amazing Tim Holtz products. You will take home your own Artist collage to show off.

This class is the perfect thing to keep your teen girls busy! A special class for young girls (12 years old or entering 6th grade) and up! Drop your girls off on Monday, July 28th and they will spend a few hours creating something that is based on the most popular book of the summer. They will create a letter box to hold notes, photos, and heartfelt secrets! You will cover a cigar box with beautiful papers & embellishments. Next you will make a little letter book to hold some of the treasures you will keep in your new box. Class includes a treat to eat and a little goodie bag!

Have you wanted to learn how to use bees wax? Do you know how to stamp in it, color it, and make your images pop? This class will teach you all of that and more. Topics taught will be different applications for beeswax, safety, tools, basic technique and styles. Other topics that we will touch upon include image searching, layout, and storytelling within your art. All students will create a 10x10 collaged beeswax panel. Special instruction will be on coloring your pieces, the cool effect of transparencies, styling with wax imprinting, stamping into wax, and popping your piece with pigments. As if that isn't enough, each student will get their choice of four themed journey kits to choose from: Pretty Paris, Romancing Rome, Victorian London, or Gypsy Travels. Could you ask for anything more? Join Mike on Tuesday, July 29th to start your journey!

We have lots of requests for card classes. This is a card class that is truly Mystic Paper style! You will be creating cards that are truly one of a kind. You pick your theme and with the direction of Meri you will use bits and pieces of this and that. Your creation will be unique and you will find out exactly what to do with all of those scraps you have laying around!

That's what we've been up to. We have classes scheduled through September. They are unique, inspiring, and truly one of a kind! Just like our teachers!
