Finding Your Inner Artist, in June (evening) – Joyful Arts Studio

Finding Your Inner Artist, in June (evening) – Joyful Arts Studio

Thursday June 2nd, June 9th, June 16th, June 23rd & June 30th * 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
(Times listed above 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!

Ukraine Dot Mandala-Fundraiser, Joyful Arts Studio

Ukraine Dot Mandala-Fundraiser, Joyful Arts Studio

Friday May 20th, 2022 * 6:15 PM – 8:15 PM
If you’ve been lucky enough to attend one of my mandala classes you know they are great fun.
I designed this mandala specifically for the people of Ukraine.
It is no accident the design is reflective of a compass, a people with a journey ahead of them.
I so admire their patriotism, tenacity and persistence during a time of great adversity.
I want to do my part to help them and I’m sure most Americans feel the same way.
The class fee for this mandala class is $35, I will send $25 for every student.
Why don’t you bring a friend?
I heard on the news that just $50 will feed a family of 5 for a week.
I will be offering this class multiple times.
Won’t it feel wonderful to look at this beautiful blue and yellow mandala, reflective of the Ukraine flag, and know you helped in a small way.
Thank you in advance for helping to support this very worthwhile cause.

Who knew how many people love turtles?
Join Susan to paint yet another Kathie George Batik watercolor design.
If you’ve been wanting to try this technique she would recommend this as a great starter class.
It is painted with watercolor and wax on rice paper.
She will provide all supplies, Micron pen, Kathie George original pattern packet, wax and paint.
You will be so thrilled with your finished result.
This should not take all day but she is planning it anyways due to all the time needed to dry the paper.
It is a jam-packed day so bring a sandwich and snacks, we won’t be taking a true lunch break. She promises it is worth all the work.
Beginner’s welcome! If you’ve wanted to learn this technique this is a great starting painting.
Seating is limited so register soon!
