Storytelling with Art, Kids ages 6-10 years old, Joyful Arts Studio

Wednesdays in June * 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
June 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th.
Pick one or all of the class dates for your children to attend.
We will be doing completely different projects in each class. 
There will be a guest storyteller at the beginning of each class.
I’ve selected very animated storytellers!
When the storyteller has finished the story we will work on “projects” relating to the story.
Your child will be prompted with questions and asked to respond by creating a work of art.
We will be drawing, using watercolors, colored pencils, and perhaps acrylics.
These classes will be taught at my home under my tents.
We will be walking our farm and perhaps having a few scavenger hunts too. 
If it rains we will be in my home studio.
Please dress your child accordingly for outdoor play and apply bug spray before coming.
Directions to my home will be emailed with your receipt.

New Art Exhibit at Allison-Antrim Museum Gallery 365

Allison-Antrim Museum, 365 S Ridge Ave, Greencastle, PA 17225, cordially invites the public to view the new exhibition of the artwork of 20th Century, local Greencastle-Antrim artists, some of whom taught private students. These works of art, in different mediums, have been donated to Allison-Antrim Museum since 1998, when the Irwin property was purchased.

Did you have Mr. Charles Witmer for art class? Come see the striking portrait of a seated gentleman that he painted. Did you or someone you know take private lessons from one of these artists?
The collection is hung in Gallery 365, aka the South Exhibit Bay, in the Barn.

Finding Your Inner Artist (Evening Class), Joyful Arts Studio

Finding Your Inner Artist (Evening Class), Joyful Arts Studio

Thursdays in March 2022 * 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM (Classes must be purchased together)
Beginner’s welcome! “Finding Your Inner Artist” class is your quest to find your “inner artist”.
If you are already an experienced artist, Susan will help you grow as an artist.
However, no previous art experience is necessary to take, and to succeed, in this class.
*You choose your medium whether it be oil, watercolor, acrylic, colored pencil, graphite or collage. 
*You choose what you want to learn to draw and paint.
*You choose your painting surface.
The creative process is done under the watchful, and instructive eye of Susan Shaffer. Come learn to paint in a relaxed, nurturing, warm, and loving environment. Susan helps her students “let go” of stress and connect with their “inner artist”. She provides a practical approach, as she gives hands-on demonstrations, and ongoing guidance, in order to help you create your work of art! Class size is limited to eight students to allow her to work individually with each person. There is value added to this class when you are able to learn things from someone else’s project … While one student is creating an oil landscape, another may be drawing a portrait;  while one is creating a whimsical acrylic painting, yet another may be painting a lovely watercolor floral.
Susan loves to help her students accomplish a painting they will be proud of and it is her belief this can best be accomplished by incorporating their interests into the entire learning process. Forming new friendships, with like-minded people, is yet another benefit of these classes.
We enjoy our common interest of art, as well as good music, chocolate, an occasional glass of wine, birthday celebrations and loving support of each other’s work!
If you don’t know how to draw, don’t let that stop you. (Susan painted for seven years before she learned to draw.) She teaches her students through a “hands-on” practical approach. She provides frequent demonstrations, offers tips and techniques to allow you to work smarter, not harder.
You will need to have your own art supplies. Susan will provide a supply list, many of which can be purchased at Joyful Arts Studio.
Come and discover your “INNER ARTIST” and enjoy an escape from daily life, in a positive learning environment!
