Title: “Canvas” using an artist canvas 16” x 16”

Impressionism is seen today as being a romantic view of the world, where originally the style was more challenging.

During the workshop we will look at the inspiration this genre of painters created and how we can use what we learn from our observations.


Title: “Sculptural Forms” A Creative Design

Friday 2/22/2019 9:00 to 11:30 AM – limit 40

Teacher – Craig Bullock

Often in our art we work every day with bold 3 dimensional materials.

Through this workshop we investigate making of forms covered in plant materials to extend our creativity to manufacture striking sculptures.


Title: “Arranging Techniques” – leaf manipulation, wiring, weaving & more

Friday 2/22/2019 1:00 to 3:30 PM – limit 40

Teacher – Thelma Shoneman

The focus of the workshop will be leaf manipulation using aluminum wires to weave lily grass into a ribbon, decorating an aspidistra leaf with a wired blade of lily grass, and then working these components into a creative design using a Holly Chapple pillow as the mechanic in a cylinder vase. Flowers will be added to create a focal point. Accents made from different sizes of aluminum wire will add the finishing touch.
