October 4 – From 10:00 A.M.-3:00 P.M. have lots of fun learning how to keep that paper from lifting and keep it sticking with “Don’t Come Unglued” collage making, taught by Susan Guest-McPhail. This seminar will focus on using lots of mediums and glue for use in collage, painting, and scrapbooking. We all want to put elements in our work, create texture, and make sure it won’t fall off. Included will be a demo using a variety of papers and other items.

October 6 – Come experiment with Elaine Caramagna from 9:00 A.M.-3:30 P.M.. She will be teaching an Experimental Drawing Indoor Workshop. Drawing is a process of discovery and an expression of one’s self, both visually and emotionally. It is the foundation of pictorial art. Using a variety of materials, we will experience the excitement of mark making in a free and unrestricted approach to drawing. Demonstrations of techniques, discussion, art history and individual instruction will provide new and fun ways to expand our perceptions and observations to create a new and personal imagery in drawing.
