Ignite your creative talent!
If you always wanted to try weaving, silk painting, encaustic and pastel, this class is for you! This April, four artists offer a four week workshop, and invite you to sample four different media!
Every Monday from 6 – 9 PM, you will spend three hours with a different artist to get introduced to weaving, silk painting, encaustic collage and pastel. You will take home an art project from each class. After four weeks, you might have found a new passion!
April Classes: THIS CLASS IS FULL
Deborah Jarchow, Weaving:
Lynda Brothers, Silk Painting:
Learn the art of painting on luxurious silk using different surface techniques. We will explore different resists and dyes and types of silk fabric that can be made into fine art, luscious clothing, fashion accessories, art quilts, and other applications.
Susan Lasch Krevitt, Encaustic Collage:
Encaustic is a beeswax-based paint that is applied hot, in a liquid state. This workshop will introduce you to a variety of image generating techniques. We’ll build collages by embedding papers & textiles, stenciling, inlay, & metallic & photo transfers. Arrive with an open mind and an eagerness to learn! All materials will be provided!
Daggi Wallace, Pastel
Try your hand at this age old medium used by such greats as Degas and Monet! You will learn how to speed up the process with a wet under painting, then applying dry pastel on top to create a finished painting to take home in one evening. All materials provided.

4 Days 4 Ways will offer another set of classes Monday evenings in September (8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th). You will sample paper making, sculpture, mixed media and print making!
Peggy Pownall, Mixed Media:
Combining painting, drawing, collage and our unleashed creativity, we will experience a dialogue between materials and imagination! While exploring what we want to “say” in our artwork, we will literally incorporate words into our visual expressions. It will be the artist’s choice whether you want to clarify or mystify – or perhaps both!
