      Also the studio is a available for your classes or private
      art parties.



      We plan to have examples on our
      blogs soon.

      *Metal Clay is 99.9% Pure Fine Silver which has been finely ground and mixed
      with an organic binder which produces a clay-like material. When fired, the
      binder burns away and the silver solidifies. This clay can be sculpted,
      carved, stamped, cast, virtually manipulated anyway that you can work
      traditional clay. If you have a desire to create beautiful pieces in silver
      without the need for a silversmith's tools or experience.



      ** "Visual journaling is a creative way to respond to an internal, very
      personal situation in traditional sketchbooks, or through nontraditional
      works of art that include both text and imagery." -Michael Bell

      Or it can also just be as simple as random images and colors that are
      pleasing to look at.





      Art Clinic Course description for after
      school slot



      At the Art Clinic we often hear people complain that they want to make art
      but never had any art training, and we hear parents telling us that they
      want there sons and daughters to have more art opportunities. We believe
      that there are therapeutic benefits from youngsters working with older
      students, so long as everyone respects everyone else's time. These after
      school classes are designed with this in mind. If you've been suffering from
      a lack of artistic self-esteem join one of Art Clinics after school classes
      with your budding artist son, daughter, niece or granddaughter and enjoy the
      world through different eyes. These classes are intended for the serious
      minded art student.



      Drawing. At the art clinic we often hear complaints from new patients about
      hand eye coordination being out of whack, with symptoms such as an inability
      to draw a straight line, or a malfunction of the ability to "see" live
      subjects. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you may want to
      immerse yourself in an observational drawing course using techniques that
      have consistently proven positive results from art clinics around the globe.
      This four week class is a basic skills class for anyone who would like to
      improve their drawing capabilities. Open to ages 12- adult.



      Watercolor classes. Water is a natural healer; couple that with color
      therapy and you are on your way to total artistic rejuvenation. Watercolor
      as a medium is very versatile for all personality types from the very
      careful to the carefree. This four week course will introduce students to
      the healing benefits of watercolor. Come and experience the soothing
      waters.



      Printmaking without a Press. . Imagine creating an image and then being
      able to duplicate it over and over, with either varied of exact results by
      hand, not on the computer. This four week class is designed to introduce
      patients to the versatile and healing art of multiples. Printmaking Therapy
      is a highly recommended remedy in ridding one of inflamed IMC (I'm Not
      Creative) syndrome. Students will make relief prints using found and made
      objects, learn to carve their own printing plates as well as other printing
      possibilities.
