$125
$10 materials fee to instructor
Have you always been entranced by the changes that each season brings to the world of nature, to your life and in your art?
Join mixed-media artist Roxanne Evans Stout for a magical day of art making, and create a beautiful Tapestry Collage that represents natureís seasons. Roxanne will guide you in this project, which could either be a wall hanging or artist book that you will cherish forever.
For our Tapestry Collage we will use four sheets of handmade Khadi Paper and begin our backgrounds by covering both sides of our lovely watercolor sheets with a combination of pan pastels, paints, inks and glazes.
Weíll follow this with a layer of collaged fabrics and rice papers, and then add our focal points: images, small landscapes and collages, found objects and elements of nature. Finally we will add stitching and other details around and through our collaged panels, which will create a personal and unique quality to your work. We will wire our panels together using rivets and hand-twisted wire rings.
You will go home with a unique wall hanging or artist book that you will love displaying in your home on the wall or on a shelf or a cabinet!

Materials are all included but feel free to bring your favorite art supplies, photocopied images, found objects and small pieces of nature like pressed leaves or flowers, flat stones or rocks, twigs, seed pods etc. We will only be taking a half hour lunch so bring a sack lunch.

Learn how to create an abstract, intricate little piece of art while practicing Mindfulness. Zentangle is an easy-to-learn, meditative form of drawing. With it you can explore your creative side, overcome stress, and enter a peaceful state of mind. Those who have no prior artistic training or drawing experience will find confidence and motivation to create more art; those who already practice art will find Zentangle useful to get "in the zone" and overcome blocks. Zentangle uses simple, inexpensive tools, is portable, and can fit into a busy schedule.
In this introductory class, you will become familiar with the theoretical background and principles of the Zentangle art form, and learn and practice basic strokes. You will learn several patterns and at the end of class you will have the basic knowledge to practice Zentangle on your own. Small supply list. Check out Heidiís website: www.themeditativepen.com/
