Art Therapy Club

Art Therapy Club meets once a month for a 3 hour class. We explore and develop all different types and ways of expression.

Create your own art quilts using your photos (or copyright free images). From start to finish, take it as far as you wish. Learn techniques and play with different materials as you create your masterpiece. Fusing fabric, painting, embellishing, quilting ... or express the minimalist in you. Whatever you are drawn to, we can explore and share with one another as a group. Come join the fun!
