Calendar Next available session starts Sep 18, 2022 at 10:30 am, runs for 4 weeks

Create your own art compendium! What is an art compendium, you may ask? Your compendium will be a handbound book, made by you, that will be a safe place created to muse and play and make mistakes. Become more curious about process rather than product under the guidance of teaching artist Dawn Zichko. Students will explore a variety of mixed-media processes: image transfer, free-form painting, hand sewing, collage, and adding ephemera or found objects. Having an art compendium means working with a process without worrying over finishing or even sharing. It becomes a springboard for those other artistic pursuits. Create your own place to start or further your own private and unique art practice! There is a materials fee included in the tuition for this course. This class is for adults and mature teenagers of all skill levels.
