Hello my fellow art-farts. This is the Gypsy and I am so excited to let you in on my first class project at The Lumberjack & The Gypsy Studio.
My goal in having classes is to help you unleash your inner creativity. You will never hear the words, “OH, THAT’S DIFFERENT” come out of my mouth as we Minnesotans know that is Minnesota Nice speak for “What in tarnation is that?” I believe there are no mistakes in art, just another way to see it, or do it, or produce it. I am only here to encourage you to let go…..put that wild purple in your painting, or add that bling-bling to your doll if you like it. There are no rules in my classes…just guidelines.
I want most of our classes to be easy, fun and cheap (oh could I go off on a tangent here!!!). The classes will be held on the second and fourth THURSDAY NIGHTS from 5:30 to whenever you are finished…usually two to three hours…depending on how fast you can make decisions about color, pattern, or whatever! I know some folks take longer to pick out their materials and that’s okay (that is why I have no end time!) I will almost always have everything you need unless I need you to bring something from home that only you can provide. The cost of the class includes all materials.
Occasionally, I will do a longer, more intricate class on a Saturday. These classes will be full days and plan on bringing a bag lunch. I will always have coffee and treats available for students!
So….drum roll, please……
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 14TH IS TEEPEES AND TENTS STRING LIGHTS.
You will be making 15 little teepees or tents to put on a small string of lights. You will make them, paint them and string them. NO SPECIAL SKILLS NEEDED. If you can hold a paint brush and use a scissors, you are good to go. You will pick five colors of paint (I used red, brown, mustard, teal, and green) so you can make them for you or your kids/grands/campers/cabins/living rooms/ etc.
When you email me to sign up, let me know if you want your lights to be on brown, green or white cords. There are 15 lights on a cord. I used brown with clear bulbs but painted the insides of the teepees yellow to reflect a warm glow.
The cost for this class and all the materials is $15.
Super fun, super easy and you will be able to go and make many more sets on your own after learning how to do it. Can you say “Christmas presents”????
So email me at robynbelsvik@gmail and let me know you are interested.
