ART JOURNALING

An Outlet for your Creative Expression

with Lois Levy

 

Are you looking to explore the artist within? Are you seeking a creative stress reliever or a relaxing outlet? Then this class is for you! Art journaling is a satisfying creative process that anyone can do. Designing your very own unique art journal is an enjoyable way of letting go and getting in touch with your imaginative self. No experience is necessary, just a desire to create. With the use of ink markers, paint, scribbled thoughts, collage and other fun creative techniques this class will allow you to do something just for yourself. No need to be concerned with the outcome. You are in the “no judgement zone” here. So come and join us to celebrate your expressive inner artist in this relaxed atmosphere. Join us to explore the imaginative pathways to the discovery of your own creative visual stories. Please bring a bag lunch for this class as we will have a break time that includes sharing thoughts about our artistic exploration.

 

For Adults 18 years and older. A Materials list will be provided at registration.

Line Dancing (Adults and Children 12 & Older)

Adults & Children 12 and older

There’s a reason line dancing remains so popular – It’s fun, and you don’t need a partner.  Instructors Tom and Rachel will show you all the basics – ball change, brush/scuff, heel spread, and more, and then they will set you loose to dance on your own, while they observe to help you perfect your technique. Wear shoes suitable for dancing, but no metal toe or heel.  Arrive ready to have fun dancin' to boot kickin' country music!

Minors should be accompanied by an adult.
