July 2020 CLASSES

CHRISTMAS MUG TREE – Thursday 7/2/2020 6:30pm to 8:30pm $35

Welcome to MERRY Christmastime!! (Or at least, the first of a couple of CHRISTMAS PROJECTS for this month!) Christmas seems to get here so quickly these days – and while we are not wishing the time to go by any faster than it has, we thought it would be fun to do one of those projects we haven’t been able to get to in previous years! We are such paper addicts . . . and with so many awesome awesome holiday paper patterns in our bins, I couldn’t wait to pick out some of my very favorite and make this super cool “Oh’ Christmas Tree” piece. Done on a 14″ x 14″ canvas, it looks so awesome in person (you know – they always look better in person! Just about EVERYONE SAYS SO!!!)Please be sure to select either the “IN SHOPPE” or “ZOOM” class when registering, based on your desired choice $35 workshop fee, includes all supplies and instructions.

CELEBRATING FRIDA KAHLO – Tuesday 7/7/2020 6:30pm to 8:30pm $35

Today we are celebrating FRIDA KAHLO, whose birthday is July 6th! We are HUGE admirers of Frida Kahlo in our shoppe. Born in Mexico City, Mexico in 1907, she was stricken with polio when she was just 6 years old, and then survived a bus accident in 1925 that severly injured her. While on bedrest (and in a full body cast) for over 3 months, she began to explore her art and developed pieces that were so head of their time. She was the epitome of inner strength, always true to who wanted to be and never giving up on herself and a true feminist icon. Join us for a fun night of creating this mixed media piece in her honor! Done on an 11″ x 14″ canvas with paints, handmade papers, images of Frida, and a variety of quotes by Frida. Please be sure to select either the “IN SHOPPE” or “ZOOM” class when registering, based on your desired choice $35 workshop fee, includes all supplies and instructions.

WATERING CAN & FLOWERS – Saturday 7/11/2020 10am to 12pm $40

I cannot wait for you to see this piece in person (you know they always look even BETTER in person!! LOL) We are doing this one on a 16″ x 20″ canvas . . . so it is a really great size piece.

BOHO BUTTERFLY COLLAGE – Saturday 7/25/2020 10am to 12pm $35

Friends, I love this piece. I love it. I love it. I love it. It is so NOT my color palette, but as I was pulling materials and papers and textures and butterflies, it just fell into place. Collaging is a hidden passion of mine (well, maybe not hidden, because I tell everyone about it). We have done a fall and christmas collage piece kind of similar to this – this one is taking us into summer with flowers and wings. And it could not make me happier. The added jewelry pendant and textures of corrugated papers and burlap make it all the more magical. We will have different color palettes available for this one, too. Such a great piece (on a 10″ x 10″ canvas) Please be sure to select either the “IN SHOPPE” or “ZOOM” class when registering, based on your desired choice $35 workshop fee, includes all supplies and instructions.

GRATITUDE DECORATIVE WINE BOTTLE – Tuesday 7/28/2020 6:30pm to 8:30pm $30

(SAMPLE IMAGE COMING SOON!) Oh how we love our wine bottles! This project idea came from a little doodle I did during our time in quarantine with a wine bottle and the Rumi quote – “Gratitude is the wine for the Soul: go on, get drunk.” So that awesome little quote will be our inspiration as we do a “Gratitude” Themed decorative wine bottle. We haven’t done a wine bottle in a while, so we thought we were long over do. With lots of fun summer tissues and ribbons and flowers and lace and this fantastic quote, see how much fun this will be!

RIGHT DIRECTION – Friday 7/31/2020 6:30pm to 8:30pm $35

We try to make sure that each month we are offering projects for the mind (something to learn), for the soul (something to feel), for the home (something to display), for the season (something to celebrate). This one is definitely for the soul. We have all been adjusting quite a lot to a new life this year, a new normal. This tender piece is to remind us that no matter how hard the journey is, we are always going in the right direction. I felt this piece and had the vision for it the minute Cindy shared the quote with me, and it was done. Please join us for a lovely night of art and reflection on our journeys. This is done on a 12″ x 12″ canvas and will be such a lovely reminder to you of this time in our world.

We have finally been able to secure the wood used in this piece, and cannot wait to bring this class back. Made on a gorgeous rustic wood pallet in the size of 7.75″ x 30″, it definitely is a shoppe favorite and one that I am SO proud to share with all of you again.

PAPER MACHE DOLLS – Thursday 8/13/2020 6:30pm to 8:30pm $30

Ok . . . let me explain. This class is just super fun and super silly, and I really hope you will give it a go. Inspired by a text from our shoppe friend (AMYLOCKWOOD!) that said, “I really love these. I want to make one.” . . . that was all it took. My little doll has been sitting on my art desk the past month, and she often makes a cameo in any ZOOM gathering I am participating in (and always creates a little chuckle.) We will make one (or two, if time allows) whimsical little dolls in this class. Sample dolls are about 7 and 9″ tall. See how easy it is to create something super fun like this . . . I think this class would be great for interested artists over the age of 10.
