Studio Calico November Classes1:00 AM
I've been away for a short few days to have some fun away before it's back to school. Since there's a nationwide strike by train drivers, we left earlier than planned. Happy coincidence: I (and you, too) can still take advantage of SC's classroom offers for October. The two classes I am writing about is "Send Joy", a Christmas card class with Lisa Spangler, and Paint.Plan.Play, an art journaling class with designer Ashley Goldberg.
First, let's talk about Lisa's class because this one is a no-brainer! If you are a card maker, expectancy from friends and family and not least yourself to send cards for Christmas is kind of high, isn't it? Still, I know, I never manage to send them to everyone I have on my list in time - or worse, like last year I made only a few for design team assignments and gave exactly one (1!) away. Talk about epic fail! Sounds familiar? I read the class description for "Send Joy" I knew this one's for me:
"The Yuletide season is upon us and that means it’s time to send hand-crafted greeting cards and tags for those you hold nearest and dearest. In Send Joy Lisa Spangler will show you how to create 15 cards and 5 tags in bulk so that you can send them to 100 of your closest friends. Provide your entire Christmas list with handmade cards made with care."
During the first half of Paint.Plan.Play, you’ll explore core painting techniques Ashley uses every day, then you will transition into putting those new skills to use in several projects. With Ashley’s expert guidance, you will learn how to take control of color, pattern, and text by using paint, collage, and various other mediums to add allure to all your paper crafting projects – from personally designed journal layouts to Project Life spreads."
