Creative Classes at the Blue Giraffe!

Paint Like a Rock Star

Every Friday in June from 9am – Noon

Learn to paint with complete freedom so it feels as natural as breathing. Local artist Aaron Sutton can teach you a simple formula that will erase any hang ups you may have about painting. You will learn to paint quickly, and with more confidence. Be prepared for a high energy rock ‘n roll art class! There will be only 4 students at a time to maximize personal attention. 16×20 canvas and all materials are provided. Bring ripped jeans (optional) snacks, water, caffeine (also optional) and a positive attitude. Pre-registration is required.

Silk Art Scarves

Every Friday in June, from 10am – 1pm

Create a beautiful silk art scarf. Ebru is the art of floating dyes onto a water surface and then using a stylus, stakes or combs to make intricate patterns with the dyes on top of the water surface. Artisans, Gary and Valerie, then stretch a 72”x14” silk scarf onto the water surface and the design is instantly absorbed by the silk. The scarf is then dragged off the water and rinsed in a water bath. The customer takes the scarf home in a baggie to dry. The designs can be simple and abstract, or more intricate, making chevron, peacock and other beautiful patterns. Either way, the scarf is always one of a kind! Drop-ins are welcome.

Trash to Treasure

June 20th from 5 – 7pm
