Wednesday morning water color journaling class (2nd Wed per month)
Next class, August 11: 9:30-11:00 AM
Led by Paula Pugh.
Come and get inspired to start an art journal or get new ideas for your own practice. Paula will introduce watercolor journaling for new people, and she will also teach a new technique for new people and for folks who have been to her previous classes. Paula has been recording her life in watercolor journals for over a decade – and her books are beautiful! In this class, Paula will share a selection of her journals to give you ideas and will talk about how to get started doing your own. For full info (including supplies to bring) look under "events" below.

Friday morning Blankets for Kids Program
9 AM to noon
Do you want to use your sewing and knitting skills to help young people who are facing challenges? Join our community of makers who are creating blankets for children in need. We are currently making blankets for kids detained at our Southern border and for several different organizations on Whidbey Island. Experience is not necessary because we are willing to teach you to knit, sew, crochet, and quilt. If you can’t or don’t want to make blankets but still want to help, we need donations for shipping costs and delivery people who can take the blankets to CADA and CASA. For more information contact Luanne Seymour (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Darcy Sinclair (email@example.com).
