For Crew/HS/Adults

 

Zentangle:

 

  Connie Souba has enjoyed artistic pursuits all of her life.  She fondly

  remembers doodling elaborate designs all over her grade school

  notebooks.  Later while earning her BS in Interior Design and Related

  Arts from the University of Minnesota, her interests blossomed as she

  developed lettering (fonts and typeface), sketched homes and drafted

  architectural plans.  Soon after graduating, she moved to Wisconsin

  Rapids where she was an Interior Design Instructor through the Mid-

  State Technical College Adult Education Program and opened CLS

  Interiors.  Over the years, Connie has taught a variety of art classes, exhibited at art fairs, and sold her work through gift shops in Wisconsin.  Her calligraphy can be found in Colorado, Pennsylvania, North Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.  Connie’s love of pen and ink continues with her newest passion, Zentangle, and she can’t wait to share it with others!  Zentangle is the use of repetitive, basic pattern drawing.  It’s easy and simple, yet beautiful and restful. This art form increases focus, boosts self-esteem, and relaxes the mind.  Come be inspired by an enthusiastic, energizing, and creative artist.

 

In June, Connie will complete training to become a CZT (Certified Zentangle Teacher) while studying with the two creators of this art form, Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts, at their Providence, Rhode Island Certification Class.

What is with all of the creative journaling buzz?!

 

You are curious and would love to try it, but who has the time for one more thing? And where do you even begin? With this class, of course!

 

In this mini-workshop, you will get a colorful and creative introduction to creative journaling (this means LOTS of inspiration and fun, hands-on techniques) that will help you get started and work your pages in stages, allowing you to get your creative fix on a daily basis, in short amounts of time at home or on the go!

 

Unlike other forms of artwork, creative

journaling is all about the doing and the process,

and not about the outcome. Anything goes!

And the more imperfect, the better!

 

Be forewarned - creative journaling is

addictive and very therapeutic!
