    This online Zoom class, recommended for ages 13 - adult, is geared for people who have never knitted before and will learn the very basics like the knit and purl stitch, garter vs stockinette stitch, increasing and decreasing, changing color and casting on and binding off. Students will come out of the class with a striped scarf and a ribbed hat, as well as how to read patterns and seam up their knitting. In addition, we will have discussions about online resources and fiber communities like ravelry.com. They will also get an overview of different kinds of yarn (different weight, different fiber content) and different kinds of needles (straight vs circular, bamboo vs metal, etc). Two hours a week for six weeks offers enough time to cover content and to allow plenty of practice and assistance. For people who catch on quickly, knitting in the round, lace, color-work and cable techniques can also be explored. 

    A ZOOM account is required to attend class virtually.

    Product? That’s for the birds. Students are led through a series of tactile and writing exercises to unleash creative juices without the pressure to end with a final product. We will be working with household objects, doing MadLibs (remember those?!), examining nonsense writing to mine it for creative gems and holding story circles all in service of generating ideas and concepts for eventual art pieces. Creatives taking this class will be able to inspire each other, laugh and provoke thought in one another, all facilitated by a seasoned creator and performer, Katie Butler. Ages 13 - adult.

    Students will emerge with easy, fun generative tools for when the next creative block hits. Great for emerging artists in all mediums, and seasoned artists looking to tap into their mojo. Spend an hour exploring concept-creation and art-making in a low-pressure, fun environment!

    Online course requiring Zoom download/account to attend class virtually.

    This Online course offers guided instruction to beginning students and those developing skills in watercolor painting. We explore the translucent qualities that are unique to this versatile medium. Essential techniques include: basic washes, mixing/blending colors, painting loose, creating texture, using value sketches to compose a painting, and combining colors to achieve harmonious effects. Specific projects are presented with encouragement for artists to progress at their own rate. Subjects to be painted may be still life set-ups, landscapes, and printed or electronic images. A list of suggested supplies will be provided.
