Get Creative | July

July at The Studio is a fun and creative month designed to introduce you to new ideas and tips and maybe some mediums you've not worked with before. But our biggest hope is that you will be inspired and that your creativity will be stretched!

Each Thursday evening is a "stand-alone" topic, so you can come to them all or to just a few. Here's the line up (as you can see, each evening has a designated fee associated with it based on the supplies we'll use that night). NOTE: we will be meeting in room #320 in Kid::Life - the last room on the left in the yellow carpet-tiled hall.

July 2 - TEXTURES ($6 to cover supplies)
July 9 - RESISTS ($6 to cover supplies)
July 16 - PHOTOGRAPHY (no fee! Yay!) Bring your photo-taking device
July 23 - YUPO & ACRYLIC INK AND WATERCOLORS ($8 to cover supplies)
July 30 - OPEN STUDIO ($6 to cover supplies) This is a creative free-for-all night!

On 7/2 we'll dive into textures - working on an 11x14 canvas panel, you'll create a mixed media project using a variety of items to create texture. This is a valuable technique to creating depth in your work.

On 7/9 we'll work with resists, meaning creating white space with rubber cement, for example, on watercolor paper. Then we'll add color using watercolors. Then wait to see what happens!! So awesome.

7/16 we'll talk about contemplative photography and then head outside on our property for a photo prayer walk. Bring any photo-taking device, you don't need a fancy camera for this meaningful project.

7/23 we'll play with watercolor and acrylic inks on yupo paper (a non-absorbent paper that is super fun!) Trust me, you are going to love this.

7/30 is our OPEN STUDIO. Bring your project and work on it in community! If you bring your own supplies - it's free. There is only a fee associated if you need to use Infused Arts supplies (11x14 canvas panel and art materials/paints). You can come play with an we medium if you like. The sky is the limit! Come and experience creative play. *This is open to knitters, writers, photo editors, fiber artists, carvers, painters, scrapbookers, jewelry makers, painters, mixed media artists, etc. It's a fun evening of creating in a creative community.

To sign up for one or all of the Thursdays in July, contact deAnn Roe.

Hope to see you at July @ The Studio!
