Huge Talent on a Small Canvas!

With the end of 2015 close at hand, our monthly "ATC Workshop & Swap" gathered together for the final time this year to show off their talents last Thursday, December 10th.  From the results, it seems everyone had a great time creating their cards using the themes of  "Nightmare Before Christmas", "I Saw Santa Kissing Mommy", "Scenes of Winter", and "Cook's Choice ~ Anything Goes!".  Everyone obviously put their artistic talents and skills to work!  It was exciting to see what everyone came up with, and, as usual, we definitely weren't disappointed.  Just take a look for yourself . . . better yet, come in to see them in person, as well as all the other results from previous months in our exciting ATC Gallery!

If you'd like to join in the fun, join us next month on Thursday, January 14th, when the themes will be "Movie Stars from the 40s & 50s", "Bob Dylan Song Lyrics", "50 Shades of Grey", and "Cook's Choice ~ Stenciled Motif(s)".  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!
Coming soon!  Be sure to watch for the results of our recent "Challenge" from December . . . Altered Bamboo Tiles & Altered Christmas Ornaments!  We know you'll agree that the outcome is 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?
