Face Mask

Instructor: Pam Carriker
Description: Most of us try to put our best face forward, but often underneath there are many things going on that our outward appearance masks. In this self-examining art journaling exercise, you’ll learn masking techniques for creating a "safe zone" to unload those thoughts and feelings our outward mask hides. From the silly to the serious, recording your inner thoughts in an artistic way is a valuable self-awareness tool and the mixed-media process satisfies the creative soul.

Paint It Out

Instructor: Dina Wakely
Description: Join Dina for a fun, therapeutic art experience. You'll start by creating a mess! You’ll scribble, make marks, write out thoughts and feelings, and let the emotions spill. Anything goes! Then you'll examine your messes and find shapes and forms in the chaos. Learn how to isolate the shapes and forms and to create beauty from the mess. You'll end with lots of layers that peek out, interact, and vibrate with meaning.
