Sunday Painters
2 to 4 pm on the Second Sunday of the month
February: NO CLASS due to remodeling
May 9th Mathilda Potter: Plein Aire Painting


Sunday Painters meets the second Sunday afternoon of each month, from 2:00 to 4:00 PM.  This is not a "class" per se.  It is a free and fun way for folks to try new mediums and subjects.  

A3L provides all materials free of charge for your first two sessions.  We have a different project and medium that we work on each month.  Sunday Painters is always free and always open to the public, but we ask that after your first two sessions you join A3L, and if you can,  that you bring your own materials.  

We only take 8 people, so call 828-668-1100 sign up early.  You must be registered by the Wednesday beforehand.

Tuesday Evenings starting April 6th through May 25th from 6 to 8:30
NOTE: Register early as minimum of 5 and maximum of 8

Join this once a week for 8 weeks workshop and learn surprising things about yourself as well as learning how to release those things that you no longer need that may be holding you back from being the best version of yourself! This type of journaling is surprising and eye opening.... Doing it with a small intimate group, allows us to know that we are not alone in having self-doubt, needing direction in our lives and so much more.
We will use a variety of techniques, so that you can learn which works best for you... 
It has been several years since Lorelle has taught this workshop, but she has been having strong promptings for a couple of months, to offer it again because there are many who need the benefits that are gained from taking it.
NOTE:
Students will need to bring a spiral bound drawing pad, an inexpensive small set of pastels, an ink pen and the book "Visual Journaling by Barbara Ganim and Susan Fox". You can get used copies on Amazon for around $10.
Questions? Call Lorelle at 828 595-6007 per email lorelleartist@hotmail.com
