We had so much fun in class…so much so that I didn’t actually get any photos except this one of the two of us and Greyson the kitten.

New Book Clubs Starting

Standard

Summer is nearly over and just like that!  I’m looking forward to getting back into the swing of things with our weekly book club.

I get so many people asking “what is that book club thing I see on the calendar?”

Book Club at A Work of Heart is a way of practicing the exercises/projects in an art book (as opposed to just reading it)  Each week we cover another project.  All supplies are included in your class fee.

This fall, starting the week of August 24, we will cover 2 books concurrently.

Pictures from Painted Blossoms Book Club

Standard

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.

One More Book Club for Fall

Standard

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.
