For a description of each art class currently running or in-the-works, see below.
Cost: FREE Time Commitment: 4 weeks, 2 hours per week Ages: Adult Class size: Up to 20 Level: Beginning Have you seen all those coloring books for adults? Want to learn to draw like that? Don't be surprised to find that it is easier than it looks. Zendrawing, also known as meditative drawing, is all about relaxing, letting your mind wander and allowing your hands to do what they want. It includes repetitive patterns, so you don't have to think too much. Although it is not geared toward young children, kids as young as five have enjoyed this class, but this one is meant for adults who want some peace and quiet. If you want to bring your kids along, you are welcome to attend a Zendrawing In the Park class. These classes happen one to three times per year.
Beginning Zendrawing In the Park
Cost: FREE Times Commitment: 4 weeks, 2 hours per week Ages: 7 to 105 (all ages) Class size: Up to 10 Level: Beginning This class is exactly like Beginning Zendrawing, except that we do it at a local park, so feel free to bring your kids. This class usually happens during the summertime and is family friendly. Feel free to bring your kids and have them play on the playground, or join the fun. This class happens one or two times per year.
Class in Development: Zendrawing Off Paper
Cost: $40/ month Time Commitment: on- going, 2 hours per week Ages: 18+ Class size: up to 5 Level: Intermediate This second-series class is for people who have all ready taken the Beginning Zendrawing class. Each month, we will create one or two different projects using the things we learned in the first class. We will create things like mugs, decorative places, notebooks (including binding), dish towels, hats and much more. The class is mixed media and is a great way to explore all types of new ways to craft. You must have a Beginning Zendrawing certificate to participate. This class will be a weekly class from October through May each year, with breaks close to national holidays.
Class In Development: Connect With Nature Through Art
Cost: $30 Time commitment: 4 weeks, 2 hours per week Ages: 7 to 12 Class size: 6 to 10 Level: Beginner Get your budding artist outside! This class for older kids takes place outside at a local park. Nature is not just for the sports fanatics, kids who prefer to stay inside and draw can enjoy it, too. Each week we do a new project using things we can find in nature. We begin each class with a quick game and visiting session. Then, we go on a walk in nature to find the things we need. Kids will do some sketching, sculpting, painting, and even create their own cave paintings. This class will be up to once a year during the summer months.
*Cost for all classes must be paid in full one week before class is set to begin. I buy all supplies up front, one week before each class. All refunds must be requested at least one week before the first scheduled class.*
