Workshops Coming Up

Today, June 3, we had a very successful "Altered Alchemy" workshop. The group wants to meet again soon, so watch this space for the next altered book making date--most likely June 17.

"The Forgiving Medium", a beginning acrylics class, meets Monday, June 18 from 4-7 PM. We'll cover the many ways to use acrylic paint and the mysterious substances known as acrylic mediums. Even if you have never painted before you'll come away with two portraits or still lifes on canvas. Tuition: 50. Paint, brushes, and mediums are provided. Bring some prepared canvases or canvas board in sizes you'd like to use. I'll have light snacks available. To register contact or call 971-404-7664.

"Midsummer Creative Revels"-- St. John's Eve or Midsummer Night is a traditional time to celebrate the magic of a summer evening. We'll make herb sachets and fairy manikins and feast on Shakespearean treats. Materials and feast provided. Meets June 24 from 6-9 PM. Tuition: 60.

"Book Making for the Right-Brained"--If you'd love to make a book but Fear Measuring, join us for this class taught by book artist Alisa Walton. Her patient expertise will result in participants creating a lovely and durable hand made book. Meets July 8 from 10-4. Supplies included. Tuition: 90. Bring a brown bag lunch.

All above workshops held at The Art of Your Life, 1210 SE Oak, Portland.
