Are you interested in hands-on art-making, and ready to get started? An experienced artist committed to deepening your art practice? Or looking to feed your child’s creativity? The Community Series is the place for you and your family to explore and discover — at every stage of life.
A Smash Book is a delightful way to display pictures, poetry, artwork, a life event, travel... the topics are endless. You will start with a simple spiral notebook and alter the exterior with collage, memorabilia, pictures, pen doodles and then continue to the interior. Each book will be a unique reflection of the creator.
A national movement “The Kindness Rocks Project,” encourages people to leave rocks painted with inspiring messages along the path of life. In this community workshop, we will paint creative rocks to distribute throughout our community and promote random acts of kindness, inspiration and art. We will also share our rocks on the “Vermont Rocks” Facebook page.
Bring your neighbor, friend, child and learn some rock painting techniques and spread some joy. All ages are welcome, and no experience is necessary!
Feel free to bring some rocks of your own and/or we will provide an assortment of rocks to choose from. Rocks should be a size that fits comfortably in your hand.
Have you ever wanted to try your hand at memoir writing? This 1-day workshop will focus on establishing what memoir is and isn’t and help you frame your story using the techniques of fiction to tell the most important story of all: yours. Please bring one photo of a personal moment to use as a prompt. No previous writing experience is necessary and everyone is welcome, from beginner to seasoned professional. We can all learn from each other!
