ART JOURNALING is a non-threatening way for those who would like to begin to learn to draw. For three Monday evenings in January I’ll be teaching the basics of this very meaningful way to keep a day/life journal that not only tells your story in words, but adds visuals elements as well. It’s like mini classes in drawing, watercolor and hand lettering – and a whole lot of fun. $100 for all three classes (+ small materials fee). Jan 13, 20, and 27, 6:30-8:30pm.

CALLIGRAPHY means beautiful writing. For two Monday evenings in March I’ll be teaching an Italic Calligraphy Class – a beautiful classic script, written with a chisel edged pen. It is absolutely elegant looking and a fun new skill to learn. Korch Home, March 3 & 10, 6-9pm, $110 (supplies included) www.ruthkorch.com (see under classes tab)
