Workshop: NYE Intention Setting Through Art
DECEMBER 31, 4-6 PM
Everyone has heard of new year resolutions, but have you ever considered new year intentions? Could you imbed your hopes and goals into a single work of art and then hang it in plain sight to keep you accountable all year round?
You bet you can! LET’S GET WOOWOO.
Come spend New Years Eve making art (and still be home in time to party (and by “party” I mean order pizza and be in bed by 9:30!)). This class will result in an abstract piece you will be happy to hang on your wall at any time, only you will know it is actually a work of process art and is imbedded with words, images, and materials that are meaningful to you in setting goals and intentions for 2020. Participants will be given a brief (10 minutes - it’s important!) homework assignment 48 hours before class begins, and will be encouraged to bring scraps of paper, fabric or fiber to assist in the art making progress.

- Wear paint-friendly clothing. Things get messy!
-Aim to arrive 5-10 minutes early. Class will start *on time*. Students who arrive more than 10 minutes late will have difficulty catching up.
Is it okay if I'm a beginner? Absolutely. I only offer workshops that can accommodate a large range of experiences and skill sets. You do not need painting experience at all. That said, some of my students are professional artists. We all have something we can learn from each other.
Is it weird if I come alone? Not at all. In fact, I prefer you come in one or two at a time. Larger groups can often shift the focus and pace of the class. You'll have plenty of opportunities to chat and talk throughout the two hours, but I will keep you busy, so if you are not big on small talk, no worries, there's also no pressure to be chatty. You are here to make art! Please don't drag in your mom or your co-worker just because you don't want to try it out by yourself - they'll bring down the vibe. And you're a big girl. You can come solo. I promise!
What about kids? These classes take place in a working art studio. There are many items in here that are sharp, wet, and/or poisonous. For their safety, and my insurance guy’s sanity, I kindly request children stay out of the studio area unless specifically invited. Children are always welcome in the front gallery area, and there will be occasional children’s art workshops in the future. In the meantime, I'm happy to recommend any of the many places in Evanston already offering art courses for children. Thank you for understanding!
