July calendar-finally!

Greetings everyone!
Yes I am finally posting after a two week hiatus.  What have I been doing the last two week you might ask?
I have been cleaning and packing up my house preparing to put it on the market for sale.  Yes I am one more California soon to be homeless in our "summer of recovery". 
Eventhough I might not have a home I am determined to keep the studio.  So I am finally posting the July schedule.  I must appologize to all my blog readers and the others instructors at the studio for not posting earlier but I have found the last two weeks a little daunting. 

So here is the Studio schedule minus a couple of weeks . And again I appologize.

Class: Altered Books (series of 5 classes)
Description: Have you ever heard the quotation “so many books so little time”? It’s never truer than when talking altered books! So what is an altered book? An altered book is creative reuse at its best. Think of all those unwanted books ready to be thrown away. Why waste them when you can turn them into works of art!
In this first class in the altered book series we will focus on what book to choose and where to find it, content, how to prepare and strengthen pages, what materials can be used and finally a full collage spread.
In this series of classes students will gradually build up an altered books “kit” of favorite supplies that will be handy for use at any time. This “kit” should be brought to every class.
Items to bring: First kit items to bring: Paint brushes, scissors and gel medium.
Time: 10:30 to 2:00

The design can be your own or a project piece for the purpose of learning the skills taught.
