Classes & Workshops:
“Prayers for the Planet” Climate Change Mandala with CJ Shelton”
Make your words count! Join CJ Shelton in Studio 206 on the upper level and help create a circular painting (known as a mandala) of written words and symbols. The theme will be the impact of climate change in the Arctic and prayers for all the animals lost in the Australian fires. This form of art tells the visual story of all those who contribute to it and when it is complete its collective message will radiate out powerfully into the world. No artistic skill is necessary, just bring your words and thoughts then make your mark! This is a free activity for all ages. Drop by CJ’s studio 206 on the upper floor anytime during the festival.
Mixed Media with Michele Johnston
Join Expressive Artist and Mentor, Michele Johnston, in Studio 213 from 1pm-4pm to explore some Mixed Media. Discover tools and techniques to make a mini creation based around the themes ‘Fire’ and ‘Ice.'
