OSA-ArtPlayDatesv.2

ART PLAY DATES ARE IN SESSION ON TUESDAYS AT 11 AM CENTRAL TIME!

Hello Everyone!

You are invited to come hang out for an hour with other cool folks, and express your creativity!

Art is good for the heart, mind, body, and soul. Join us!

April 2024

These classes are virtual classes, meaning you can join in from the comfort of your home!

For the month of April, we will focus on a variety of things: ink, watercolor, water-soluble markers, painted papers, and collage.

Each class, I offer guidance and instruction.

I also encourage you, as a participant, to go in your own direction, as you feel inspired to do so.

Paper Dolls

Paper dolls are so fun to make! Let's play!

From last week's painted and printed papers, to old scrapbook papers, to plain card stock, there are many options to explore.

Cut shapes using stencils, or print on your papers using ArtFoamies. Use old photos of actual people for the heads. 

Again, there are so many options, and so much fun to be had!
