Tween & Teen Sketchbook Club!

Ages 10-14, make a collaged cover for a ”string journal” to hold your art and journal pages. Learn the basics of drawing and design. Limit 15.

$350/class (most supplies included)* 1 1/2hr.


Tweens and teens, grab a pen/pencil a packing box, cereal box, or old hardcover picture book and alter it into your very own "string bound" art journal.

Make a magical tome, a pet diary, a travel log or special place you love into a personal journal for art and writing.

String journals are superb for art to placed inside. Fold paper in half and slide in under the string and you have two pages held safely. It makes it easy to remove pages for reworking your art or collaging.

We will go over gesture drawing and contour drawing techniques with fun inanimate models. Get out and get creative and TAKE YOUR JOURNAL!


Creative Collage for Adults

Adults only please! This class covers design basics while creating layered, mixed media art or a seasonal ornament or art to hang! Optional participant tools: scissors, sewing needle, thread. Limit 15.  (examples below) 

We will be tearing, cutting, gluing and stitching art pieces so come prepared for messy fun! Bring a snack. We will work on items, take a break for drying time and finish up our projects after. Who knew that collage could be so much fun. Tell your summer story or favorite summer memory.

Bring in some tattered lace, old scanned photos, buttons and more for your project and I will bring eco-printed and special handmade papers to share. Let's create!
