fun, social adult art evening classes at Artisphere

For the next three Thursday evenings, starting this Thursday, May 2, Artisphere will be hosting fun, social adult art classes using up-cycled and repurposed material.  Leading local craft artist Beth Baldwin will direct the gatherings.  The classes are:
  • Make a Monster (May 2): Start with a basic, pre-sewn form and work with materials provided to create a whimsical, upcycled monster. Decorate your monster with fabric remnants, notions, and decorative stitching (instruction provided by the artist).  $20 includes all materials.
  • Mail Art with Craftgasm! (May 9): Repurpose paper goods with creative genius/stationery-making machine Melissa from Craftgasm! Just in time for Mother’s Day, use reclaimed maps, blueprints, vintage and found materials to make your own eco-friendly cards, envelopes, stamps and lettersets. Craftgasm creates reclaimed paper goods with a sense of history using maps, found materials and some snazzy vintage typewriters. $12 includes all materials.
  • Altoid Hack: Portable Art Shrines and Other Curiously Handy Gadgets (May 16):  Explore the many clever and functional uses for empty Altoid mint tins—flashlights, survival kits, mini-grills, shrine, and USB chargers–then MacGyver your own art shrine or cunning creation to take home.  $12 includes all materials.
All classes are in Artisphere's Town Hall from 6-8pm.  A cash bar will be open from 5:30-8:30pm.  Bring a friend or a date, or find one there.   You can get additional artistic inspiration from Gute Brandao’s exhibit, The Field of Expressive Silence, showing in the Terrace Gallery through May. 11.  The work shown above is just one of the many inspiring works in Brandao's exhibit.

Rosslyn is becoming an artistic masterpiece.  Be part of the action.
