DeAnna on Design - 403010

Join us via Zoom for these workshops



ORGANIZING YOUR INNER PACK RAT
Did you know that your stuff is a “physical manifestation” of your emotional baggage? What do your collections say about how you are currently and where you want to go in your life? In this very interactive workshop, we discuss the psychology of clutter, how to purge, and what to do with all that “stuff”. What to do with out-dated clothes, paper clutter, toys and how to distinguish between a “collection” and junk.

DESIGNING THE LIFE OF YOUR DREAMS...FROM THE OUTSIDE IN
In this workshop we learn about the Laws of Attraction (finding out what we REALLY want and how to go about asking/receiving it) and making these principles work in our home's decor and design. Be prepared to learn about what your "stuff" says about you and how to go about purging un-needed and un-loved items, and how they can really be holding you back in the past. Get ready for an interactive, fun, learning experience. This class will concentrate on Bedroom design as we spend most of our time in this "personal sanctuary." We will also apply beginning feng shui and healthy home principles in the creation of "our life's dreams."

OLD FAMILY PHOTOS IN THE DIGITAL AGE
Working on your old family photo prints and slides is a perfect Cabin Fever project! This two-hour seminar covers your options for scanning photo prints and slides into digital photo files - whether you have a computer or not - for a multitude of uses and sharing. Topics include creating a workflow, how to scan, how to get and stay organized, and how to back-up your pictures onto other storage devices.


CUTTING THE CORD- CONTROLLING CABLE & INTERNET COSTS
Fees for cable television, home internet, smartphones, and streaming services quickly add up to hundreds of dollars. This seminar reviews your options to cut costs and still watch television programs and have internet access on all devices.


GETTING CONTROL: ADVANCED DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY
You purchased an interchangeable lens (DSLR) or advanced point-and-shoot camera, but you cannot make the camera do what you need for portraits, sports, kids, nature, and other types of photos. Bring your camera to this “hands-on” workshop to “get out of automatic” and learn how to use your camera’s Exposure Modes and other functions for a variety of special situations outdoors, indoors, and with flash. Participants must bring their camera to class.


YOU HAVE PICTURES IN YOUR CAMERA .. NOW WHAT?
We have hundreds - if not thousands - of pictures in our cameras, smartphones and computers. Now what ..? This two hour seminar teaches the techniques to save pictures from cameras and smart phones to your computer, to external devices, and to "the Cloud." Class covers how to organize your pictures, viewing pictures on any device, printing options, and how to archive your pictures for the decades to come.

Staci Joer's Cooking - 403130

ITALIAN MEMORIES
There is no doubt that Italian food is one of the most popular cuisines across the world. Italian food represents an ideal way to eat. An ideal that is part of the wider "Mediterranean diet" often touted as having the right balance of a little meat, good fat in extra virgin olive oil, and a lot of seafood, vegetables, grains and herbs, all washed down with wine. Our menu tonight is chocked full of homey Italian flavors and a modern twist on classic tiramisu! Enjoy sampling... Bread Soup with Rags; Pasta au Pesto with Cream, Green Beans and Potatoes, (Staci will make the homemade pesto for this dish), and Strawberry Tiramisu.


DELICIOUS (BUT NON-TRADITIONAL) HOLIDAY DINNER
Most families like to stick to the traditional dishes and flavors during the holiday season. After all, food is family and old favorites are comforting. However, Staci likes to change things up a little and stray away from the traditional and introduce new flavors and recipes to her holiday dinner. She introduces you to Asian flavors for her inspiration for this year's family feast. You'll sample… Puff Pastry wrapped Ham with Asian-inspired Pineapple Sauce; Easy Garlic Chinese Broccoli; Stuffing with Asian Flavors; and Mandarin Orange Cake with Semi-homemade Cinnamon Ice Cream...yum!


SCANDINAVIAN HOLIDAY COOKING
There is no doubt that Italian food is one of the most popular. Tonight's recipes were inspired by Staci's Finnish Grandma and Great-Grandma. Homey and comforting and food that her family always ate around the holidays. Delicious sampling…Finnish Nisu (Grandma's Cardamom Bread); Suomalaisen Lihapullat (Grandma's Finnish Meatballs) with Lingonberries served over Buttered Egg Noodles; and Grandma’s Date Pudding.

Clash Of The Creatives - 403210

Join us via Zoom for this one night Adult workshops that will feature a related art experience project. Please register by the date given to allow us time to purchase supplies. Your supply kit will then be available for pick up about a week prior to class.

CONFRONTING ONE'S MEMORIES - Kahlo vs. Quinn
One was a feminist and Communist when neither were fashionable. The other, a contemporary artist at the top of their game. Both experienced trauma at a young age, one when 18 years old, the other at age 15. Their resulting art addresses these traumas and teaches us how a visual medium can be used to process memories and how those memories define who we are as people. After a brief introduction to both, participants will have an opportunity to create a mask focusing on their choice of topic, either how they see themselves, how they want to see themselves, or how they perceive how others see them. It’s bound to be a night of reflection and healing!

SEARCHING ONE'S LANDSCAPES - O'Keefe vs. Wright
Both called the Badger State home at times throughout their life. Both would settle in the southwest after falling in love with the terrain. And that landscape would factor into the art and architecture of both. After a brief introduction to both, participants will have an opportunity to collage a landscape, real or mythic, that they long to inhabit on a permanent basis. It will be a night of dreaming that is sure to leave you with your head in the clouds and your feet somewhere special!

EXPLORING ONE'S ETHNICITY - Shonibare vs. Gibson
Race is often what we associate with the color of a person’s skin. But frequently, it is also a state of mind, an exploration into how others “see” you and a discovery of one’s ancestry. One African and educated in London, the other Native American and raised in cities across the globe, each confront what it means to be “Black” or “Indian” in their art. After a brief introduction to both, participants will have an opportunity to decorate a rag doll using fabrics, beads and other baubles that speaks to their ancestry, cultural traditions, and family stories and legends. It is sure to be a night of sharing, acceptance, and learning from each other!

EXPRESSING ONE'S FEELINGS - Truitt vs. Cole
Emotions can be a difficult thing to express in two dimensions especially if people are not incorporated into the artwork. How does one convey anger, joy, or sadness in a tree or ocean? Each artist used this challenge as a starting point in their artwork to draw out a viewer’s emotions and make them “feel” something. After a brief introduction to both, participants will utilize a rectangular piece of wood, paints, collage, and other materials to create a sculpture that creates a visceral response from the viewer. It is sure to be a night of digging deep, analyzing what triggers certain responses, and exploring how to install those emotions in others!
