Awakening to Consciousness thru Art Techniques
July 18, 10:30-12:30 p.m.
Join me in exploring various art techniques as a process of learning to be present (in each moment) and conscious of your thoughts. As an artist and art teacher, I have discovered that when one is completely involved in the ART process "time seems to stand still" and the project and process creates a space (even for just a few moments) where no thoughts of anything else exists. I will demonstrate some doodling and shading techniques and provide guidance in how to stay conscious of your thoughts while experimenting with these techniques.
Materials will be included.

Introductory Cost: $20.00
$15.00 prepay before July 18, at the library, or pay thru the Library website (click on Event Payment button).
Registration a is a MUST, since space and materials are limited.
