Start your New Year off with creativity, reflection, and community! Please join us on Thursday, January 10th from 5:30- 8:00pm for a ‘wordcatcher’ workshop with Carolyn Koesters. In this workshop, participants will create a one-of -a -kind handmade personal journal in which to explore, focus on, and celebrate a chosen word for 2019. Carolyn will guide participants with thoughtful prompts and exercises. New art journaling techniques will be demonstrated, and a variety of different papers and materials including stamps, metallic markers, watercolors, paint, stickers and more will be on hand to experiment with. To learn more about Carolyn, visit her website at : www.wordcatching.com.
Participants may also choose to receive additional monthly email prompts throughout the year to invite reconnection to the journal, create a small online community through Facebook, and capture how the chosen word reveals itself throughout the year. There is also potential for a 6-month in person check-in over the summer to see how your journal has progressed! This class is suitable for all levels, ages 12 and over. The cost is $35 and includes all materials. There is room for 20 participants in the class. Those interested in registering for the workshop should contact the Art Center at 276-596-9188, and pay via credit card, or stop by the Arts Center during regular business hours Tuesday- Friday: 12-6pm; and Saturday: 10am-6pm.
