Dina Wakley

Enrollment is NOW Open 

That's right!  You can sign up for Dina's classes now!  But first, you'll need to make your choices.  Here's what Dina has planned for you at My Heart's Fancy on May 10th and 11th....

Graffiti of My Life
Friday, May 10 - 9 am to 12 pm

Come and make a small themed journal based on Dina's popular "Graffiti of My Life" class.  Your personal graffiti is the words, quotes, song lyrics, etc. that are meaningful to you.  You'll make free-flowing backgrounds, tipped-in inclusions, and confined collages to decorate your journal.

Layers of Life
Friday, May 10th - 1:30 pm to 8:30 pm

Join Dina for a layering exploration.  You will create a unique hand-bound journal that is layered with art and meaning.  The binding is similar to a Jacob's Ladder.  Get ready to sketch, scrape, ink, scribble, paint, wash, print, and rub.  You will learn how to control layers, push them, and celebrate them! You'll use paper, cardboard, and other substrates to make your journals pulse with artistic coolness.

Facing the Facts
Saturday, May 11 - 9 am to 12 pm

Dina says she doesn't know how to draw, but she has taught herself how to draw faces.  Guess what, you can draw faces, too!  She will teach you how to draw a face with easy tips and tricks.  You'll use the "magic pencil" to make your faces look artsy and interesting.  She'll show you how to paint the faces with artistic, fun colors.  Even if you can't draw, you can learn to draw faces.  We promise!

The Joy of Silhouettes
Saturday, May 11 - 1 pm to 4 pm

Dina loves a good silhouette.  The human form has so much meaning and expression!  In this class we'll play with and explore silhouettes.  She'll show you several techniques for creating silhouettes with success, and you will layer your silhouettes with paints and inks and words and textures.

Donna Downey & Our New Look

Fun Times
New Look

We had such a fun time with Donna Downey this past weekend.  She taught us so many things with such cheeky abandon.  Donna brings a "can do" attitude with her and inspired all of us to embrace all the possibilities in the art we created.  I promise, anytime you have the opportunity to learn from her, you will come away exhilarated!  Here's a little peek at some of the art we created and the fun we had.....

Paint Like an Artist

PanPastel Painting

Techniques in Color

It was a blast.....  If you couldn't make it, be sure you plan to join us next year when Donna returns!

Also watch for details about the classes being taught by Dina Wakley on May 10 & 11th.  It's Mother's Day weekend so let your kids know its what you want for your special weekend!  Details should be posted here in a few days.

We had to move things around so much to make room for the classes, we decided to leave the classroom open to the rest of the store....  still a lot more rearrangement to be done, but I think you'll like the results...  take a look....

AND did you know that the classroom tables are always available to you to use for special projects or a girls craft day?  Just check with us to make sure it isn't already booked for something else....

Demo Day is next Saturday, the 16th.  We have a really beautiful card for you to make and Lisa is working on some spectacular classes for April.  Plan to be here.... You know it's fun and it's always FREE!

That's it for now..... Until next post..... Happy Creatin'!
