ART FOR ADULTS – TRY IT!
Relax and use that right side of your brain! Try a new art technique each week. We will work with oil pastels, paint, collage, and printmaking. Each project is designed for enjoyable exploration and success.
Many people enjoy keeping a journal. It could be a record of their thoughts and feelings, or experiences while travelling. Art journals combine words with images in a fun, free-flowing way. Preparing the page with an abstract watercolor and then writing over the painting is one example. Cutting out a photo from a magazine and weaving it through the page is another. The possibilities are endless! Art journals are a great way to loosen up and explore – to not be so serious about putting down that first mark or word on a page.
Before the invention of the printing press books were rare and precious objects. Artists are rediscovering and redefining the book as a format for self expression. Learn a variety of simple book structures and have fun experimenting with a specialty papers. Make blank books for journals or add your own content.
