Intro to Color Theory: Shades and Tints with Tabetha Landt 1pm Wikipedia defines color theory as a "body of practical guidance to color mixing and the visual impacts of specific color combinations". A dry description, indeed. But fear not - it's really not all that serious, and in fact can be fun! In this hands-on class you'll make a nifty little geometric painting to take home, while learning how to make lighter and darker versions of three basic colors.
Fuzzy Chick, Intro to Needle Felting with Wynne Reynolds 2pm Needle felting is a way to make three dimensional felt objects out of sheep’s wool. You can create just about anything you can imagine with roving and a needle. Roving is sheep’s wool that has been washed, carded and sometimes dyed. The special felting needle has barbs that interlock the strands of wool as you poke, to make a soft but firm felt creation. This is a fun and easy craft for anyone who can use a needle.

This class is for beginner painters, or anyone who feels they might not be getting the most out of the brushes they've been using.
Intro to Collage with Wynne Reynolds 4pm
The term collage derives from the French "coller" meaning 'to glue'. This term was coined by both Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso in the beginning of the 20th century when collage became a distinctive part of modern art.This is a flexible and fun art form. We'll use glue and paper to make works of art. A great class for anyone who is unsure of their art skills. You'll learn how to make art and free your creativity. Color, shape, and texture will be the key elements.
