Developing the Roots of Creativity

Classes

ARTree classes teach artistic principles utilizing an active, hands-on approach in small-class settings. Taught by professional artists and educators, students of all ages are offered both exploratory and mastery classes using artist quality materials. Classes are held at our two studios in Old Town Newhall and at various community sites throughout Santa Clarita.

Fall Sessions 2018

Adults

ARTree Tribe (Art Journaling)

The ARTree wants to build a "tribe of artists" who want to experiment with creativity through adult journaling. On the first class meeting, we will build the actual books to be used for the journal using a stitched binding technique and a repurposing of old hardcover books. Each week thereafter, teachers will lead the group in a specific technique for that week's page. Techniques may include watercolor and acrylic painting, collage, layering of paper and fabric, printmaking, mandalas, and others. Participants may also choose to add words. All basic materials included.
