Small Canvas . . . Big Results!

2015 may be winding down, but the talent of everyone in our monthly "ATC Workshop & Swap" sure isn't!  Everyone had a great time for our November 12th get-together working with themes of "Happiness Is . . .", "Brothers & Sisters", "Zingers From Grandma", and "Cook's Choice ~ Use of Fabric or Related", putting their artistic talents and skills to work.  Once again, it was amazing to see what everyone came up with.  Just take a look for yourself . . . better yet, come in to see them in person, as well as all the others from previous months in our exciting ATC Gallery!

If you'd like to join in the fun, join us next month on Thursday, December 10th, when the themes will be "Nightmare Before Christmas", "I Saw Santa Kissing Mommy", "Scenes of Winter", and "Cook's Choice ~ Anything Goes!".  Pick just 1, or mix-and-match from 2, 3, or all 4 categories, but start “thinking big in a small way" and we'll see you then at this fun NO COST workshop. From experienced to novice . . . you’ll definitely want to see what it’s all about for yourself!   It couldn't be more simple . . . create 15 ATCs using the monthly themes (keeping 1 for yourself & bringing 14 to the Swap) . . . all the same or each one different . . . then come and share with others in a true artistic atmosphere. Or just stop in and see what's going on with other artists, ask questions, share information, have fun, and become inspired!
Remember to save the date . . .
the second Thursday of each month from 6:00pm to 8:00pm . . .
we'll look forward to seeing you there!
And be sure to watch for the results of our recent "Challenge" items for December . . . Altered Bamboo Tiles & Altered Christmas Ornaments!  We know you'll agree that the outcome will be totally awesome as they always are!  What's a "Challenge" you ask?  It's the perfect chance to show off your artistic skills, simple as that!  Each is voluntary and the "rules" are really very easy ~  anyone in the group can suggest a Challenge and everyone who takes part creates Challenge Item for "Show & Tell" using everyday mixed media materials . . . embellishments, paints, papers, stencils, whatever strikes your fancy! . . . then shares their finished art piece with the group.  What could be easier . . . or more fun?
