Porcelain painting classes
Tuesdays - 10:00am to 12:00pm
February 12, 2019 – March 19, 2019
Porcelain painting is a beautiful way of displaying art in your home or office. A personally created art piece can be passed on from generation to generation, adding invaluable worth to it as the years go by. People should consider taking the classes offered, because the uncommon practice of this art is slowly disappearing, eventually making the Porcelain Painting Technique nonexistent.
Photography as a Zen Tool
Tuesdays at 12pm-2pm (Feb 12-March 19)
Photography is a great business and a fantastic tool for artists, but it can be so much more than that. Join us as we explore the raw, emotional side of photography, an art form that has helped thousands, including myself, heal from trauma, cope with grief, and balance the mind. Each class will begin with a small meditation session where we will set a personal goal/intention for the day, after which we will take to the streets around the building and photograph "street"-style photography while following open-ended prompts. We recommend bringing at least a cell-phone with a camera, but DSLR/mirrorless cameras are encouraged.
