Mixed Media Studio

Printmaking: Mondays 1/22-3/4 from 12-2pm (no class 2/12 or 2/19)
Explore personal visual expression through printmaking, the art of replicating an image multiple times. Discover the innovative techniques artists have been using for years to make prints (and monoprints) using materials such as foam craft paper, linocut and collage. All skill levels are invited to explore this exciting and vibrant art form. Must commit to attending all 5 classes in the series. Instructor Rowena Macleod 

Sculptural Bowl: Mondays 3/11-4/1 from 12-2pm
Add beauty to any surface with a contemporary bowl you have created using pre-made plaster strips, a balloon, cardboard add-ons and paint! Stretch the boundaries of your creativity to create a truly unique sculptural (and functional) bowl! All skill levels welcome to join in on this fun and inspiring art experience! Instructor Rowena Macleod

Mixed Media Accordion Book: Mondays 4/8-4/29 from 12-2pm
Do you save ephemera from your life? Use the bits and pieces you’ve been collecting and present them as a uniquely personal story in an accordion book, or use a variety of provided materials to create your book. An accordion book can stand up on its own and can be viewed in various ways, no stitching required, only paper folds. We will add a front and back cover for the complete package. All skill levels welcome to create a book unlike any other! Instructor Rowena Macleod
