Artful Play

This just in: I have been accepted to teach a six-week class through the Salem Art Association. I’ve titled the class Artful Play because whenever I look at the class listings for kids, I wish I was young enough to take them, or sometimes when I look at fine art classes, I feel a tad intimidated. All of this got me to thinking that others might be feeling the same way. Here’s how I describe the class:

Are you creative but don’t consider yourself an artist? Are you an artist but in a slump? Do you sometimes look at the classes for children and wish they had something like that for adults? Well, this series of classes will satisfy your desire to be creative and artful in a playful, non-threatening setting. We won’t be making fine art, but we will spark your creativity and have fun. Join Dayna for six weeks of creative exploration and experimentation. Be surprised each week by the following artful activities: Mask-making, blind contour and touch drawing, mandala records, embellishing a soft cloth doll, creating a life plaque using paper clay, and Collage Up a Storm.

The classes will be held at Bush Barn on Thursday evenings from 6:30-8:30 p.m. beginning on April 9 and running through May 14. Registrations will begin in mid-February. Yippeee Skippeee! Offering a new class was one of my New Year’s resolutions. Check.
