MAKE IT: Block Printed Tote Bag

Ages 16-adult

Our next block printing MAKE IT night with Anita Hagan at ArtFarm will be held on Friday the 20th of April from 6-9pm. 

In the spirit of Earth Day, we will be printing on gorgeous mulberry paper AND reusable canvas totes! Each attendee will leave with their very own bag, their reusable carved block and a few prints on paper (great for framing or making into a card).

The blocks we will be carving are 4x6" - you can draw out your own design or bring an inspiration printout to transfer onto the block if you aren't feeling creative. Creating a block to be used as a pattern on your bag is another option. We'll have some images on hand too if you forget!

NO EXPERIENCE OR ARTISTIC SKILL NEEDED!

Intro to Improv Workshop (6-weeks)
Apr

7:30 PM19:30

Intro to Improv Workshop (6-weeks)

Reflex Improv teaches the art of creating scenes on the fly to everyday people, and beginners are welcome! We use the process of “Yes-And”, and “Got Your Back” teamwork to build a series of fun, spontaneous, and hilarious short plays together. Improv skills are excellent for team-building, overcoming anxiety, outside-the-box creativity, and for developing public speaking skills. It’s also great for meeting fun new people!

Here’s what some of our improv students are saying:

"I started taking improv classes just for fun -- the bonuses are that I feel more confident thinking on my feet at work and am a better, more supportive teammate.” - Mike 

"As a newbie, I experienced a warm welcome, energizing rounds of verbal play, and the wonderful combination of fear and fun!" -Freddie

"Does two straight hours of laughter qualify as a core workout?” - Keri

"It's a tremendous stress reliever and unbelievably fun.  The instructors and fellow group members are inclusive, creative and wickedly funny!  I don't think I have ever laughed so hard.” - Gayle

"Every week, it's two hours of laughing, while challenging myself creatively at the same time. I've walked into improv class in a variety of moods, but I've only walked out of improv class in a great mood” - Chris

Work and make with Stephanie Baker, visual artist and collage enthusiast. Come away with your own 2D, ready to hang "analog collage" OR a unique VALENTINE'S DAY CARD that can be scanned and replicated.

Explore the art of collage- a process with [almost] instant gratification that can be as simplistic or creatively complex as you wish. Revisit the basic elementary concepts of cut paper and paste, now streamlined for the art-minded adult. 

Build your collage as an exuberant visual bombardment, or a tastefully clever pairing of one standout image against an unexpected new color. No wrong way to make this!

Learn a little bit of modern history, see a wealth of gorgeous examples, and probably gain a few new ideas in your creative bank. Fee free to bring a favorite pair of scissors (if you have one), or any fun magazines or paper items you may have in the recycling pile. All other materials provided, including the scissors and magazines.
