February 1 :: Spread the LOVE ~ art heals, love heals

Love Heals, Art Heals

It is the season for LOVE, and in this month’s workshop, we will be focusing our creative expression on opening our hearts and spreading love. The girls will be sketching a heart shape and using this image as a guide to hand-carve a rubber stamp. Using their one-of-a-kind stamps, they will make monoprints ~ the perfect colorful expression of love, perfect as a Valentine’s Day card! In addition, they will use some of their monoprints as LOVE LETTERS to send to their friends from Gather {old and new}. They’ll also have a few extras that can be used to spread a little love, kindness, and thoughtful words to those who may be in need. The world needs more love letters; wouldn’t you agree?

In this day and age, when almost everyone is on their smartphones, computers, or iPads, and a little “disconnected” from one another, it may seem old-fashioned to create a card, express your thoughts on a hand written note, and send it through the postal service. But imagine being the recipient of that beautiful letter and work of art delivered straight to your door ~ it can warm your heart and soul; it can heal and inspire.

Come join us in this fun-filled, expressive workshop, and spread the love. The day will be filled with lots of creative expression, art techniques, printmaking skills, and, of course, at the heart of it all…mindfulness, meditation, and yoga.
