Shop Update & Classes

Gah! How is it March already!?

There are only 3 and a bit weeks left of the school term!

(Ok so now I am having a minor freak out as I write this, realising I need to get my butt into gear and write up and market my school holiday program.)


I thought I would start off by showing you some of the fun we have been having in our after school kids classes this term.

By far the favourite has been embroidery. I thought I would do a quick introductory class for one lesson but it turned into two classes and some kids wanted to keep going for a third lesson to finish them. I have been pleasantly surprised at the kid's concentration and determination. They got to draw their own pictures and learnt running and satin stitch.

We have also done Watercolour Water Experimentation, Card Making with Stamps, Colour By Numbers With a Twist and Fantasy Castles with acrylic paints.

Here are a couple of examples:


 

Last week our Soul Connection Art Journaling classes started back up and it was so nice seeing everyone. These run the last Friday of every month and are a great way to be yourself and create without the expectations of others. It is a way of checking in with yourself and acknowledging what you need. You will be surprised at how you subconsciously tap into your needs and the answers you receive. One of the great things about art journaling is that you don’t need to be artistically creative. If you can hold a brush, you can do the class.


Take a look at these art journal pages from the night. Our theme was New Year Reflection. We looked at what we wanted to leave behind and bring with us from last year and what we wanted to do differently this year.
