Tuesday, July 19 6:30 – 8:00 PM
Fee of $25pp includes all materials
We learn so much from our customers at Artbeat.  A few weeks ago we introduced a new papier mache vase that has a plastic liner so it can actually hold water. One of our brilliant customers purchased one along with a beautiful decoupage paper and created an extraordinary vase.  She came in and bought 6 more vases and an array of varied papers.  She told us that this was her new “go to” hostess gift, a few flowers from her garden in this beautiful handmade reusable vase!

Her story has inspired us to invite our customers to a night of decoupage.  Join us to create a vase of your own, to keep or give as a gift. We will provide the vase, paper choice and instruction.  Bring a friend, have some fun.
Don’t miss this chance to relax and create!

Nothing is more magical than creating color and patterns that suit your mood and please your eye.With gel printing plates you can create an infinite number of brilliant – and surprising – patterns and special effects.

In these sessions we’ll use gel plates, rubbing plates, stencils and other objects to explore colors and visual textures. Then we’ll transfer those designs onto paper . The papers can serve as backgrounds or as focal points of artful greeting cards, decorative prints to frame as gifts, or pages in your art journal.

NEW! Zen Gardening

179a3522-0329-4b54-ad57-f9974ca6b359The Zen garden seeks to replicate the powerful peaceful presence of a Japanese rock garden, where water is represented by sand, mountains by stone, and islands by moss or rock. It is raked every day in a pattern meant to represent a river with swirling eddies.

Now you can have a Zen Gardening eveningwith your friends. Reserve a table in our studio for 4 – 10 people and bring your own beverages. We’ll start off with an exercise in centering, by coloring flower mandalas and learning how to use watercolor pencils and Chameleon markers to blend beautiful color. When you’re in the zone, begin creating your personal Zen garden. First you’ll pick a background color that brings you joy – choose from our luscious satin and metallic hues – and brush a smooth coat of paint on a wooden tray. While the paint dries, enjoy your refreshments and explore our selection of smooth stones, sea shells, and handmade miniature bridges, pagodas and towers. After making your choices, put it all together: painted tray, fine powdered sand, bamboo rake, miniature bridge or tower, stones and shells. Use your rake to make rivers, eddies, and other patterns. Take home for your office or private space as a silent and powerful presence to still the mind and bring calm into your life.

Zen Gardening  is for adults and  teens in groups of 4 -10, and is available by reservation any evening. Group Reservation Fee of $50 plus $30pp includes all materials.
