Kristi Roberts—Children’s Art Classes
Mondays: 3:45–4:45 pm for ages 7–11 years
Mondays: 5:00–6:00 pm for ages 11–16 years
Come join an exciting class learning a variety of art. I will be developing your child’s art ability where they are at and giving them an opportunity to try out different mediums so they can find what they will enjoy. We will be doing units in drawing, watercolor, acrylic, pastels, clay and mixed media. I am teaching fine art concepts and techniques with each lesson. We will be exploring a variety of subjects including landscapes, people, face, animals, cartooning and perspective. This is a weekly class and you need to register a month ahead in order to hold your spot for that month.
Annie Salness—Farmer’s Market & Painting
One Day Workshop: June 16, OR July 21, OR August 18, 10:00 am-3:00 pm
We’ll begin at the relaxed light-heartedness of the farmers market on Saturday morning at Cedar Mill Farmers Market. You’ll spend an hour taking in the atmosphere, music, smells, scenes, and people, and choose a colorful vegetable, fruit, or flower to paint. We’ll go over how to lay out your palette, choose brushes and use lighting and value in your painting. Then you’ll paint, with hands-on, personal instruction.
Elizabeth Higgins—Your Creative Life: Vision Board Workshop
Saturday, June 23, 9:00 am–12:00 pm
OR Wednesday, July 18, 6:00–9:00 pm
Life is not happening to you, you are creating it! Focus on the life you want, and don’t expect the things you don’t want. This is the Law of Attraction, and envisioning a positive life for yourself is the first step in manifesting the life you wish to lead. In this workshop, we will spend one hour in simple writing exercises to uncover and prioritize our life goals and desires. We will then create a visual roadmap of our dreams using images instead of words. Participants will take home a poster-sized vision board that can be used in a daily practice of training the mind to be more positive and open to believing and receiving our desires.
Rebecca Benoit—Cell Phonography: from SoSo to So Fabulous!
Sunday, June 24, 1:00–4:00 pm. This class will explore tools in your camera that you probably didn’t even know it had such as adjusting focus, exposure, burst mode, white balance and using HDR. We will also cover fundamentals necessary to create juicy photos such as composition, exposure, focus and lighting and how to use the tools in your phone to make the most of these variables. We’ll also play with some fun accessories such as magnetic wide angle, macro and telephoto lenses.
Leslie Boyce—Watercolor Techniques & Textures Workshop
2-Day Workshop: Tuesdays July 24 and 31, 12:00 noon–3:00 pm
Join me for a 2-week workshop to practice basic watercolor techniques along with some fun ways to add interest to your work creating different textures. You may be surprised how many household items can help you work outside the paint and paper box! At the end of the class, you will have several reference sheets and completed greeting cards using your new skills. This is a great opportunity to try your hand at watercolor or just relax and enjoy a couple of summer afternoons with fellow artists.
Madison Weiss—Mindful and Meditative Mandala MakingWorkshop
Saturday and Sunday June 30 & July 1, 10:00 am–3:00 pm
Join Madison for a very special weekend course with structured, easy-to-follow lessons. In this course, you will learn the art of creating a Traditional Buddhist Ritual Mandala. Create your own Mandala using paint and mixed media, and participate in guided relaxing and centering meditation and journal writing. You will learn about each ring of the Mandala and its meaning as you are guided through story and color until you reach the gates and find your own expression through art and writing.
Leslie Boyce—Watercolor Elements
Tuesdays, August 14, 21, 28, September 11, 18, 25, 12:00 noon–3:00 pm
Join me for a six-week class to learn basic watercolor techniques as we practice painting different elements: flowers, skies, rocks/mountains, water, etc. We will experiment with different styles of each element using value contrast, color theory and principles of composition.
Susan Pfahl—Copperplate Calligraphy
Thursdays, Oct 4, 11, 18, 25, 7:00–9:00 pm
Learn Copperplate Calligraphy! As the ability to refine metals grew, it became possible to replace square ended pens with pointed pen nibs. A series of cursive writing styles soon emerged. These styles are still used today for highly formal documents and invitations. Copperplate is the predecessor of the cursive style handwriting most of us learned in grade school. In class we will work to become comfortable handling the pen, and then tackle the alphabet—small letters and large, numbers, and punctuation. We will also play with flourishing.
