Class Schedule - November 2017

New Class Schedule

We always have so much fun on Demo Day.  Lisa had fun directing everyone in the making of this lovely Make 'n Take.....

We used stamps and coordinating dies from Concord & 9th to create the wreath.  Concord & 9th is a new company we recently became acquainted with and we are really loving their products.  Ink pads and gold embossing powder from Ranger.  

Lisa has a great class schedule for November.  Lots of Christmas Cards and 2 great classes using the Master Page Create - Christmas.  You don't have to take the Master Page Create class to do the card or canvas class.  You can use a copy made from hers.

 So without any further delay, here is the schedule!

Master Page Create Xmas Cards
Thursday, Nov 2
10:30 am OR 6 pm

You will be using a Master Page Create - Christmas artwork to create these cards. Did you take the Master Page Create - Christmas?  NO?  No problem.  Lisa will provide a copy of hers for you to use for an additional $5.  Either way, you'll love how beautiful your cards are using your own or Lisa's hand made paper.

Art Journaling Saturday
Saturday, Nov 4
10 am OR 2 pm

This has become a favorite "class" for us and our artists are having a blast.  Every month Lisa or I create an art journal page and guide you, the artist, through the creation of your very own version. If you have never art journaled, this is the class for you! This month Lisa has created this colorful page using Dylusions sprays, stamps from Dina Wakley and an assortment of stencils.  You provide the art journal and we provide most of the other supplies.

Winter Wonderland Canvas
Thursday, Nov 9
10:30 am OR 6 pm

Here's another fun project using the Master Page Create - Christmas.  If you didn't take the Master Page class, don't fret - for an additional $5 Lisa will provide a copy of hers for you to use.  Create this canvas using the Master Page Create as the background for this fun snowman art.

Pastel Christmas Cards
Thursday, Nov 16
10:30 am OR 6 pm

We love Danielle Donaldson's artsy girl stamps by Stamping Bella and you will too.  Lisa uses them here for this darling set of watercolored Christmas cards using the Christmas Carousel Collection by BoBunny.

Saturday, Nov 18
Come and Go
10 am to 4 pm

You're always invited to this FREE day of fun and previews.  We always have a FREE Make 'n Take and Lisa's new class schedule for December will be on display and ready for enrollment.  Grab a friend and join us for all the fun!

Christmas Pop-Ups
10:30 am OR 6 pm

Lisa is using new stamps and dies from Concord & 9th to create these wonderful 3-D cards that fold flat for mailing. You can make these cards in the traditional fashion as well, but you'll learn how to make them 3-D in this class.

Magical Christmas Cards
Thursday, Nov 30
10:30 OR 6 pm

Lisa is using the newest Christmas paper pad from Tim Holtz paired with more stamps and dies from Concord & 9th.  You'll make 2 large 5x7 and 2 standard size cards.

Jodi Ohl

Workshop Recap
Jodi Ohl's
2 Day Zen Painting Workshop

Oh my!  Did we ever have fun learning abstract painting techniques from Jodi Ohl!  Seriously, it was fun and exciting.  Jodi was such a great teacher.  She guided us through the steps with ease and Lisa and I were lucky enough to get to join in.  What a great experience!

So we started day 1 with 4 mini gesso boards and we learned a number of shading and doodling techniques.  Then we spend time putting those techniques to work.....

And on day 2 we created a larger composition and added color.  Everyone's work was amazing and unique to the artist.....

You can see how different and unique each one is.  Thanks, Andi, Mary, and Teresa for letting me photo you guys in action.  

Loved this wonderful workshop and can't believe I didn't get a photo of Jodi in action.  We're already working on the next one for fall of 2018, so if you missed this one, make plans to treat yourself to the next one!
