This summer, warmer weather and open skies offer the perfect classroom to enjoy arts experiences in a safe, socially distanced manner. Standard COVID-19 precautions remain in place until further notified. Space is limited, thus registration is required for most activities.
Let it Go: Art for the Soul
Expressive workshops that marry creativity & mindfulness! Workshops open with meditative exercises and experiment with media that offers newbies plenty of forgiveness. Materials included.
Members $35/Non-members: $50. Held Outside.
1 Saturday, 10:00 - 11:30 am
Paper quilling uses strips of paper that are rolled, looped, curled, twisted, and shaped to create decorative designs. Learn how to use this creative art form and make unique greeting cards.
Explore the ancient art of Suminagashi, or traditional Japanese paper marbling. You’ll find that several keepsakes can result from pulling paper through a swirling bath of floating ink – from wall art to greeting cards! Add short poems or inspirational sayings for some added Zen.
All materials included. Capacity: 16 students. Minimum: 5 students. Ages 18+.
