Celebrate Spring! (Swift Current) May 3, 4 and 5

“Blue Suede Shoes”, Watercolour, 8″ x 10″

 

I am looking so forward to being hosted by First United Church the weekend of May 3th, 4th and 5th to celebrate spring in a creative and lively way. These events are open to the entire community. Hope you can come! Here are some of the events

FRIDAY, MAY 3, 4:00 – 8:00pm SCRAP BASKET PAPER COLLAGE

Create a rainbow of birds or whatever your heart desires from Sue’s scrap baskets of paper from around the world. No previous experience needed. This is a great activity for families to do together. Come and go or bring a bag lunch and stay. Free will donation.

 

SATURDAY, MAY 4, FEARLESS WATERCOLOURS FOR BEGINNERS Two sessions: 9:30 – 12:00 noon 1:00 – 3:30pm

This 2.5 hour PLAYshop introduces you to the joy and surprise of watercolour painting. Through guided exercises, you will learn some basic techniques, such as different brushstrokes, drybrush, and wet on wet. You will make a simple color wheel, learning the fundamentals of colour mixing. We will finish by creating a watercolour mandala – a visual prayer or meditation. $60.00 (includes high quality materials) $80.00 for whole day. The afternoon session will be a repeat of the morning session. For those who wish to participate a second time, Sue has some additional exercises to try. Ages 10 and up. Please register at the church office. 306-773-9353

 

SUNDAY, MAY 5, 1:00 – 4:00 CREATE A SPRING TREE and FILL IT WITH BIRDS

1:00 pm – “Noticing Walk” or Mindful Walk 20-30 minutes What might inspire your creation?

1:30 – 4:00 pm Creation Time: You can do one of two activities or both. Bring an old flower pot from home. We will use acrylic paints to decorate your pot and give it new life. Sue will bring branches from her trees that you can “plant” in your pot. Then, using Sue’s paper, create birds or other decorations for your tree. (Or spend the whole time creating birds!) Free will donation.
