Do you want to be creative while also learning some of the “lost” arts?

Many of these skills are making a comeback and are trending on social media such as Instagram. Perhaps this is partially because society is recognizing the power of creativity and the meditative properties of these hobbies. In fact, when we are allowed to express ourselves and make creative choices, we often demonstrate more self- control in our lives. These hobbies are great life skills and can even spark an entrepreneurial spirit within us.

During this class, we will learn the basics to 3 needlecraft hobbies. 1. Sewing 2. Crochet 3. Knitting. Students will leave each unit with a totally awesome creation of their very own. I will do my best within each unit to allow student choice so that they end up with amazing and fun results!

BOTH BOYS AND GIRLS ARE INVITED (and encouraged) TO PARTICIPATE!!!

Do you need to stretch your creative muscle more?

Do you see awesome photoshopped or digitally created pieces of art and wish you could create it?

Would you like to learn some PhotoShop, Procreate, and general digital art skills?

Have you ever tried to use a creative art software and gave up after trying to figure it out?

If any of these are experiences or feelings you’ve had, I can totally relate.

You will get a chance to explore many of the revolutionary artists who defined rock ‘n roll as well as the unsung heroes in genres from rockabilly to psychedelia, punk, metal and beyond.
