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.

MAH JONGG
MAH JONGG

with Huck Hirsch

 

For almost 100 years, spirited players have been picking and throwing Mah Jongg tiles from coast to coast (but mostly in Florida). The American game, which derives from its ancient Chinese counterpart, dates back to the 1920’s and differs from Asian versions in its use of a standard card that determines the official hands you can play. Once you can read the card, the rest is easy as pie — and great with a side of pie a la mode!  In only seven weeks, you’ll be playing on your own.

 

This class is for beginners who want to learn the game AND those already playing who want to enjoy regular weekly play while also developing their game sense with additional instruction about strategy, defensive play, and other more advanced elements. All levels are welcome.

 

Please note special requirement: A 2018 NMJL Card is needed to participate. The instructor will provide instructions for obtaining one prior to the start of the program.
