Zentangle
Zentangle: Tipsy Tangled Gems
Feb 16, 2018


Join our resident CZT in a wonderfully relaxed evening creating vibrant pieces of Zentangle Inspired Art! Bring your Prismacolor, Faber Castell or other colored pencils if you have them. I will have a few sets available for use as well. This new evening gathering we will invite participants to BYOB and Nibbles.  We will provide non-alcoholic beverages.


Zentangle: Tipsy Tangle Renaissance
Mar 23, 2018


This Zentangle method is reminiscent of Renaissance drawings. It is inspired by the chiaroscuro method (Italian for light-dark) which is a drawing technique done on toned paper, using both warm and cool earthy colors. Students will become familiar with the techniques that will give their work that recognizable Renaissance look and feel, exploring tangles from a new angle. Working on Zentangle Renaissance Tiles, students will use brown, black, and white pens to work the surface, and continue to create shadows and highlights with graphite and white charcoal pencils.  Students should preferably have some Zentangle experience. Renaissance tiles are included. Loaner supplies will be available for those who do not have their own.  Renaissance supplies will be available for purchase as well.  YOU ARE WELCOME TO BYOB and NIBBLES.

Price $35

Art Break
Vision Boards
Jan 12, 2018

While we mean them when we set them, New Year’s resolutions often get dropped because they are not truly rooted in our core values so they lack potency. Let go of all the ‘shoulds’ this year and identify a core value and focus for the upcoming year. Then, harnessing the power of intention setting, participants will create a vision board collage to be hung in the home, office or studio to serve as a visual reminder to hold your core focus in mind when making decisions the whole year through.

My Heart is Full
Jan 31, 2018

Through a guided collage process, participants will create a unique piece of art holding all that fills your heart, nurtures you, and replenishes you. As the title suggests, the core of the image is the heart shape, though each participant will choose the style of the finished product so everything from flowery and lyrical to edgy and bold are possible! Through the dark of the winter, let abundance light your way!

Arrows Of Intention
Feb 02, 2018

Create a wall-hanging that is both beautiful to look at and also reminds you that you are powerful and able to “aim” your life down the path of your choosing. Participants will be guided in utilizing found objects, fibers, and paint in the creation of arrows and incorporation of such in to the final wall-hanging.
$30


Mirror, Mirror on the Wall
Feb 07, 2018

No wicked witches here, only wise warriors! In this workshop, participants will be guided in the creation of a mini mirror wall altar. Each participant will choose a word, phrase or quote that embodies her own definition of inner strength. These words will then be incorporated into the mirror altar either literally or as the inspiration and guide for the creation of the mirrored altar itself.
$30


Finger Labyrinths
Feb 16, 2018

In labyrinths, there are twists and turns but you are never lost because there are no dead ends or traps. Labyrinths have long been used in contemplation, prayer, meditation – but most people don’t have access to one in daily life. Participants will create a finger labyrinth designed to be ‘walked’ with – you guessed it – your finger! They can be taken everywhere and even used for grounding when anxious or distracted.
