Adult Paint Night: Sunflowers after Van Gogh
Our first ever in a series of painting nights for adults, we'll explore the age-old practice of copying the masters to learn their techniques.

Altered Book Poetry Workshop
Also known as Redacted, Blackout, or Found Poetry, this mixed media, recycled and somewhat free- form class engages our imagination in two ways: with both visual art and creative word work.  Using pages from discarded books and magazines, words are redacted to create poetry from those remaining, and then the background is painted and colored to enhance the poem.
It's challenging and highly addictive!
