New Creative Classes coming soon
22nd September 2016

Spring is in the air bringing colour and inspiration to The Ponds Arts and Crafts Group.

They will be introducing new creative classes in Term 4 and we look forward to seeing you! It’s a great place to discover different art forms or simply to relax and make new friends while learning a new skill.

The Card making and Painting with Acrylics classes will continue, plus you’ll get to learn Decoupage and have a chance to write words of inspiration at the Calligraphy Class in November. So please keep an eye out on our Events Page for details and booking on all classes.

Take a look at what the Arts & Crafts Group have done in its last two sessions for Term 3!

 

Introductory Card Making

Cards for Newsletter Spring​Throughout the term the ladies learned how to use a die cut machine and using the pieces to create a layered effect, basic stamping techniques, filling in with colour pens and embossing. They have made cards for different occasions including birthday, general occasion or thinking of you note cards and Father’s Day cards. The card making class finished off with crafting this elegant embossed designed card. The class was a fun filled day with the ladies learning how to emboss and design a layered 3D effect.

A huge thank you to Belinda and her dedication in sharing this enjoyable time with the ladies and for all the special and new techniques she has taught to make cards with.

 

Basic Painting with Acrylics

Artwork Spring NewsletterThe class has had an inspiring journey as each one explored and began the process of discovering or revisiting their own unique styles. During Term 3 they reviewed mixing basic primary colours and explored basic techniques of using shapes and lines to develop a painting simply by being inspired by the colours and shapes, guided by the natural flow of lines and curves. Being able to see and share with one another, the class learned both the practical process of painting and expressing thoughts or questions that came along during classes to help unlock creativity and inspiration.

It was a very exciting process to see all the vibrant and joyful results. Thank you ladies for expressing your inner beauty and thoughts on paper and canvas.
