Art Night

Art Night

The Art Group gathered to share projects and talk
about their creative process. Later on that night we
experimented with writing and painting techniques
to tap into the imagination and unleash our
creativity. Mike Stratil facilitated.
Our plans this year is to explore the creative process
through mixed media techniques and creating surfaces as well
as more altered imagery. Join the Creative Connection and
share the creative process.

Art Night

I am forming a multimedia artist network and the first meeting will be at Flynne’s. Everyone is welcome. Bring something that you you do as an artist if you want to share it with others. I am also planning an Artist’s Way group and a Journal to the Self 8 week workshop for those who are interested. I am launching a whole new exciting Winter into Spring art program for all ages 3-adults. I can be reached by cell.. 910-528-7283

American Artists and Sewing Art Quilts

American Artists and sewing lessons.The students learned about American Quilts as well as art quilts. I showed examples of a traditional quilt that Mom had made and an art quilt of mine as examples. They are learning how to piece their re purposed fabric on quilt bases and will do applique, embroidery and beading to finish their art quilts. The art quilts will be shown in a Meet the Artists First Friday. I will post the information both here and on Facebook and Sandhillskids. I am also having a five day art quilt camp from January 4th-8th.
Students will learn how to create a beautiful wall hanging using all the fiberarts skills.
