I hope you are having a beautiful weekend! We have been creating, watching movies, stealing wild sunflowers from the side of the road and reading.  It has been exactly what we were needing.

I wanted to let you know about FOUR courses that are beginning this month.  I don’t ever think we have had such a rich line up in one month.  This is the perfect time of year to dive back into your creativity!

Hand-Forged: A Metal and Torch Soldering Jewelry course begins on September 12th.  This course is being taught by Stephanie Lee who is a pioneer in the  art of jewelry soldering.  It is an honor to have such a gifted teacher a part of our creative network and to have her bringing new techniques and projects to all of the artists in her course. The jewelry pieces she is teaching are gorgeous and perfect gifts for the upcoming holidays.

Eclectic Beaded Crochet Jewelry course begins on September 19th.  This course is being taught by well loved teacher Robin Dudley-Howes.  On trend and boho chic, learn Robin’s method to make these stylish crochet beaded wraps, NO crochet experience necessary! These fun pieces can be wrapped several times around the wrist or be worn as a necklace. These are addictive and so fun to make!

Studying Under the Masters for Kids begins on September 19th. This course is being taught by Nationally recognized homeschool teacher, speaker and curriculum creator Alicia Hutchinson.  This is the course that my kids and I are so excited to dive into this year!  This course is all about history, techniques, creativity and expressive play.  Whether you homeschool your children or not…this course will be incredible for the kids or grandkids in your life!  You can watch the course trailer HERE.

Paint Your Town: Mixed Media Urban Landscapes begins on September 26th.  This course is being taught by Jeanne Oliver.  We will become tourists in our own towns and open our eyes to the photography, sketching, architecture, people, cafes, painting, connecting, history and beauty right in front of us.  We will create abstract landscapes, work with sketching and watercolors, collage, image transfers, charcoal sketches and create mini works of art to create our own Paint Your Town journals when we are done.
