do it. create. walk and see. cut and paste. scratch and sniff.
do whatever you have to do to feed your soul.
this is my commitment.

art class

Yesterday we started a new art class series inspired by Sara Fanelli's My Map Book.  This illustrator uses bold colors and words, modeling another form of autobiography.  Her illustrations spark imagination and prompt her "readers" to imagine a bigger story.

Two children mapped out their bedrooms and two others created treasure maps.  The bedroom maps tell a story of what the points of interest are in each room to each individual at this time of their life.  The treasure maps take the viewer on a journey throughout the page, one with islands, boats and monsters and another with a dinosaur at every turn.  

We will be creating other works of art inspired by Fanelli's book and her illustrations every Sunday afternoon in July.  Contact me if your child is interested in attending on any of these particular dates.

Sundays, July 13, 20 and 27
3:30 - 5:30

At our next WEEKDAY WORKSHOP, we will be creating paper mache sculptures as well as textile art.  Each class involves a walk, a snack picnic and an art making session.

July 15 and 17
2:30 - 5:30
$95 for 2 afternoons
