Greetings Everyone! Can you believe its already August? And its about time that I posted the classes at C.Andrews Studio. I think we have a great group of classs this month. Here are the details:

Wednesday August 11th Instructor: Connie Andrews Class: Shrink Art #4-Wood and Bone Description: Don’t you love the look of old ivory or bone scrimshaw? I always think of Tall ships and mermaid images on ivory- Wood and Bone. In this 4th Shrink Art class you will learn the techniques to make white shrink plastic look like bone or ivory scrimshaw and almond colored shrink plastic look like wood. You can choose to make wood or ivory items or mix the two for a stunning combination that can be made into jewelry or decorative items for collage, cards or scrapbooks.

While considering the pieces of your life for which you are grateful, you will be introduced to working on plaster wrap, one of my favorite materials. We will also use glimmer mists and learn the technique of constrained collage. Please bring gesso, scissors, a wet adhesive (glue, gel medium, etc.) and an assortment of paint brushes and acrylic paints. A pre-class handout will be emailed to those who sign-up.

Private studio time – This is for artists and art groups looking to rent studio space to work or to get together during the week-the times and fees are to be arranged on an individual basis. If you are interested in private studio time please email me at
. Open Studio- This is studio time open to everyone for only $10.00 per day. I will have open studios every Friday and on the weekends when no classes are being offered. I am hoping that this will be a place for artists to gather and exchange ideas and to catch up on all the gossip. Open studio for the month of August will be on the following dates: August 6th, 13th, 20th, 22 and 27th.
Studio Membership- Want to come to all the open studios and Altered Books club? Why not pay for a monthly membership? Monthly membership is only $30.00 per month. For this price you will be able to go to any open studio (at least 4 per month) and altered book Club. You will also be able to participate in any of our Trunk shows and sales for free. This is a savings of at least $20.00 to $50.00 per month! Studio membership must be paid by the first open studio (Friday) of the month. After that you pay $10.00 per open studio or Altered Book Club visit. Closed Studio-There are four closed studio dates in August: August 1st, 7th, 15th and 21st. These dates may be used for open studio but must be arranged in advance so that I can open the studio before I leave out of town. If you are interested in using the studio on these dates please email me at or call me at 650 726-8100.
We hope to see you soon!
