Every Thursday, skipping Holiday weeks and school breaks

Is a way to engage that artistic power through a “coming-of-age” program for girls, sharing girl-centered issues and experiences through journal and book-making and creative writing, puppet and mask making, and learning drawing and painting techniques. Our first 6-week session will focus on Drawing Techniques and Beginning Watercolor. Supply list: 9 x 12 spiral bound sketch book, tracing paper, pencils (various leads: HB, 2B, 4B), kneaded eraser, Sharpee markers (fine, extra fine)

Please bring a “sack-supper” and beverage as well to your first meeting. We’ll make plans for a shared supper the following weeks. PLEASE NOTE: This program will be held at the Little Artshram Studio, 311 1⁄2 Maple St., Traverse City.
