Upcoming Sessions

Working with Gesso
Fri, Feb 8
Gesso is a white paint-like mixture that typically prepares surfaces such as canvas or paper as a base for drawing and painting. But it can also be used to give a surface texture, definition, and so much more! Join us to learn creative uses for gesso in art projects.

Presented in conjunction with The 28th Annual Strathmore Juried Exhibition: Night.

Altered Books
Fri, March 22
Our Altered Books session is back by popular demand! Bend, tear, draw, and sculpt to give new life to used books in one of our most popular Make It/Take It projects.

Presented in conjunction with the Flora/Fauna and Surfacing exhibitions.

Fiber Collage
Thu, June 20

Collage isn’t always a paper-based endeavor: this session explores collage with both natural and synthetic fibers.

Presented in conjunction with The 32nd Biennial Exhibition of the Creative Crafts Council.

Sample from Working with Gesso on February 8.
