Art Clinic
September is not the New Year but in my mind it is always a beginning-maybe because it is my birthday month or maybe because school traditionally started in this month. Whatever my memories, this September is the beginning of new things here at the Art Clinic.
Yes, we have grown a bit- we have added a new area to our wonderful studio space, the jewelry studio and to celebrate we will be conducting new classes. Please read on, and if you have any suggestions of times for classes and the kinds of classes you would like offered, please email us. We would love to hear your ideas.

Art Clinic – September 2007

Every Thursday is art day, a “therapy session” from 10 to 6. Come on down to our basement studio and get messy with a project, see what other artists are up to if just say “hello”. We offer a space to work some materials if you need them and lots of spicy conversation. This is a great time to work on ATC’s(artist trading cards) or other projects.

TheFUN FUN FUN is back!

One Thursday in September, (date to be determined) Come join fiber artists: Mary Stanley and Colleen Darling, in a combined class of needle felting and felt bead making. In this class you will learn to needle felt by making items such as a book cover or fun pin. You will also learn to make felted beads and embellish them with seed beads and needle felted embellishments. There may be a small materials fee. Class cost $45. includes a snack.

Metal Clay is 99.9% Pure Fine Silver which has been finely ground and mixed with an organic binder which produces a clay-like material. When fired, the binder burns away and the silver solidifies. This clay can be sculpted, carved, stamped, cast, virtually manipulated anyway that you can work traditional clay. If you have a desire to create beautiful pieces in silver without the need for a silversmith’s tools or experience. Beads and findings will be available for you to complete a necklace, bracelet or earrings at an additional cost. Open Studio available for individuals who have attended my introductory class for Metal Clay. The studio cost is $25.00 plus the cost of the silver clay.
