Getting Inspired with Art Demos!
Get to know our 2021 instructors with free online demos that showcase their art and personal style. Starting in April 2020, to keep in touch with our artists during lockdown, the demos became a wonderful bright spot of inspiration in the current world situation. We hope you enjoy the chance to watch one of your favorite teachers or experience a new medium.

Schedule of Upcoming 2021 Demos
Times listed are Central:
- April 17 - Kristin Peterson - Continuous Page Book / Mixed Media - 10am
- Journey into the continuous page of an accordion book. A folded gem of a journal with a running storyline filled with paper, fabric, paint and art marks. This last year has taught us to be adaptively creative and given us more time to consider art supplies and products that we have at home. This folded structure can be dressed up, or kept simple, but is sure to bring along a good time. So grab a cup of coffee, paper, glue stick, a carefree spirit and come join Kristin!

- March 27 - Karen Knutson - Mixed Media
- Karen Knutson will be doing a free facebook demonstration on how to make small color studies that will be bound into a booklet.

She works on a smooth surface that has been coated with matte medium. She will also be teaching Wire Drawing (which is drawing with a permanent marker to look like a wire sculpture.)
