Book club is one of my favorite ways to gather community. Most of us can relate to the tendency to pick up an inspiring book by a respected artist/author only to have it sit and gather dust on the shelf with all our other good intentions.
Book club is a community gathering in which we actually work through said book(s). Each week I facilitate activities directly from the pages of the latest/greatest art books our community is interested in.
We are gearing up to start some new books in a few weeks. There are 4 to choose from with plenty of times for anyone’s busy schedule.
Please, if you have any questions at all about how book club works, just ask either here in the comments below or via email (firstname.lastname@example.org)

I’m so in love with this latest book we are covering on Tuesday mornings. I feel like these will be some long lasting workshops even after book club is over…especially today’s drippy flowers!
Here are weeks #1 & #2 with our happy painters
We are really enjoying the flowers…there are still 5 weeks of classes left and it’s not too late to join the fun. See something you like? Request a re-run and let me know when you are available.
Loving what you see? Check out Carrie Schmitt’s Blog here. We have a few copies of the book left in the shop.
Our newest book club addition is Painted Blossoms meeting on 7 Tuesdays.
You now have two time options:
Tuesday 10am-12pm OR Tuesday 6pm-8pm
Here are the first two lessons.
Session 1 of 7
Session 2 of 7
Flowers are organic, wonderfully forgiving subjects. Each one is unique; you can’t paint one wrong! Painted Blossoms will encourage you to welcome creativity with ease as you discover ways to tend the garden within. In addition to watching yourself grow through seven different stepped-out flower projects, you’ll learn basic design elements, how to get unstuck from the mud, how to carve your own stamps, cut your own stencils and more.
