New Art Book Study Sessions

Standard

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 (andrea@aworkofheart.com)

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.
