Creative Classes and Workshops
August 14th 1pm - 4pm
Collage is an art form all itself, but it can become something even richer and more personal when elaborated and infused with the artist’s hand. In this workshop we will begin with creating collage images and adding to and/or extending the images with painting, drawing, stenciling, or other manipulations. See how far you can take an initial image, and watch what interesting art emerges
ART AS A SPIRITUAL PRACTICE
Thursdays 6pm - 8pm
September 18th - October 23rd
Non Member $200
This series of six workshops is designed to explore our connections to the Sacred, and the mystery beyond the mundane world. By connecting to that energy, we can bring that energy into our daily lives. Using intuitive artmaking, movement, sound, writing, and guided imagery, we will discover what has been inside us all along, and how to access that universal energy whenever we wish.
Drawing as Meditation
Sketch Your Life Workshop
Saturday September 21st, 2019
Saturday October 19th , 2019
$75 + $30 for the Art kit.
A full sketchbook journal is a travelogue of your recent life, even if you never left town. For all those random minutes other people spend on their cell phones while waiting for the bus, waiting for the kettle to boil, waiting at a doctor’s office, you will be happily sketching, doodling, creating your one-of-a-kind book.
In this workshop you will receive a kit with all you need to launch your new sketchbook, and will learn ways to easily incorporate a sketching habit into your life. We will explore the materials including pen, pencil, tinted wash, and full watercolor. You will learn the basics of page design so your pages look intentional and pleasing. We will look at the working sketchbooks of artists from around the world, and see how the benefits of keeping an artist journal / sketchbook go far beyond what appears on the page.
All art supplies you will need are provided. We recommend you bring a bag lunch and a beverage with you. We will take a break from 11:30-12:00 for lunch, discussion, questions, etc.
For questions about the class, call Bobbie Herron in Concord NH at 603-715-9152.
Sketchbook Adventures First Sundays Open Studio
The First Sunday of the month 1-3pm
All are welcome! No experience necessary.
Free of charge.
If you have taken any of my classes at Kimball Jenkins, or if you have a sketchbook that is getting a bit dusty, come join us for an enjoyable Sunday afternoon sketching together in the company of friends. All you need to bring is you sketchbook, a small kit of your favorite tools, and a bit of curiosity. We will meet in the back of the Yellow House, in the printmaking room where the Sketchbook Adventure classes have been held. Bring with you a photo or two that you would like to work from, or any small ‘still life’ objects to sketch, such as a pine cone, acorns, or fresh flowers. (Natural objects are far easier to sketch and explore than hard-edged man-made objects.) Feel free to also bring a thermos of tea and a snack for mid-afternoon. (Your snack might end up being your still life!)
There will be no formal instruction included so this class will be free of charge. Free supportive feedback and enthusiasm from me and your classmates is always available!
