New Classes for the New Year(and some old faithful ones)

Shrinemaking Workshop with Sukey Hughes Five Wednesdays starting January 20th - February 17th 1:30 - 4:30 Fee $225

Sukey pioneered the very popular shrinemaking class some years ago at Adult Ed in Santa Barbara. She now is bringing it to the Art Clinic.
Shrines can be any size and range from the sacred to the profane to the humorous to remembrance boxes. We will start with little matchbox shrines that open and shut,
with a surprise inside each “shrine.” From this we will advance to larger boxes, such as Altoid cans, cigar boxes, deep frames, pencil boxes, antique boxes, drawers, even
suitcases make great shrines.
Each class Sukey will do a demonstration, such as the
use of rust and other patinas, gold leafing, crackle glazes, photos transfers, and other
great art techniques. For the first class, matchboxes will be provided. You are
encouraged to bring your own materials too -- oriental papers, animal erasers,
holiday ephemera, vintage or family photos, hearts, lace, ribbon, keys, do-dads -- for
the first class, whatever fits in or on this 2 1/4” x 1 1/2” x 3/8” matchbox. After that
you may continue in any size that fits on the worktable! Paints, glue and unusual
papers and do-dads provided.

‘Journal Espirit’, akin to visual journaling, allows direct access to our right brain, the world of no words, but rather whole thoughts, mostly without conscious awareness of what we are doing. In ‘Journal Espirit’ participants are given prompts, usually in the form of a story, or the symbolism associated with a word to help us move more easily toward our deeper inner thoughts.
Sign up now and join Carol Kemp for this fun filled, informative and self-gratifying experience.

Metal clay is fine particles of 99.9% fine silver, which when combined with an organic binder and water can be manipulated like clay. When fired in a kiln or with a torch the binder is burned away leaving the metal in solid form. It can be sculpted, cast and textured to create beautiful fine jewelry. This is the perfect medium for the novice and professional alike.
