We’re just wrapping up another season of art classes at Curtis Arts Center and what a joy it’s been! I loved seeing students enjoy the fun effects watercolor can create and watching calligraphy students fall into a rhythm of lettering.
Showing up to try your hand at a new skill is half the battle. Setting aside the time is also a big commitment. But doing so is an investment in your Creative Self, the part of you that wants to pursue an artistic path.
The magic happens when we come together to SHARE a few hours of time spent making letters or painting shapes. We dive into our supplies enjoying the thrill of it and loving the process.
Thank you for attending my classes and workshops and I’m grateful for your enthusiasm and positivity!
June 7 – June 28, Thursdays 9:30 a.m. -12:30 p.m., 4 sessions
