“I try to apply colors like words that shape poems, like notes that shape music.” —Joan Miro
The wonderful art students at Franklin Academy are starting new art projects, so as soon as they are ready, I’ll be sharing photos online. This Halloween will be one to remember, since the school allows all celebrations of holidays, like costumes, decorating, and there’s a fall festival dance coming up. I’m thrilled, because it means I get to dress up in a new costume for my art classes! Any guesses? There’s also some great art events happening this October & November for all ages to enjoy, so be sure to read more of the newsletter to find out. Remember that you can see more art examples on both Facebook/Instagram: Rachel’s Whimsical Arts.

Adults & Teens Art Classes this Fall @WCC!
Break out your creativity and have fun making a set of 4-6 holiday ornaments in this ceramic workshop! Learn how to use molds to make shapes such as stars and hearts, or learn how to create your own shape out of clay, applying underglaze to add a dash of color and shine. Your ornaments will be stained and fired in the kiln, ready for pickup November 25--just in time for the winter holidays and decorations or handmade gifts. Please bring sketch paper, pencil, eraser, and a ruler to class. All other materials included.
Ages 10 and up are welcome to register with an adult.
