9/28/19 Heart to Heart - Collaborative Hearts with Jodi Ohl and Jean Skipper
Our hearts are overflowing at the very idea of this collaborative class with Jodi Ohl and Jean Skipper! Join them at ARTworks Vass for a full day of creating during Heart-to-Heart. (The photos on this page describe this project better than we ever could!)
From 9:00 until noon, Jodi will lead you in the gallery classroom as you expressively layer paint on the wooden heart of your choice. (Each heart will be hand cut, lightly sanded, and base coated before your arrival so that we can jump right into the fun!) From bright bold colors to subdued earth tones, color blocking to intricate details, and strong patterns to subtle shading; Jodi will provide you with a world of possibilities during the first phase of this project.
We'll break for lunch and drying time between 12:00 and 1:00.
Then from 1:00 until 4:00, Jean's studio classroom will be our playground as she shares her curated collection of found objects and other treasures. (Some *might* call it junk! lol) She'll lead you in safe tool usage while demonstrating a multitude of connection and finishing techniques. Whether your vision is of a light touch when embellishing, or a metal-centric-masterpiece, she'll help you to bring it to reality.
While all supplies are included in this collaborative classroom experience, we alsoinvite you to bring your favorite brushes, paint colors, tools, baubles, and beads too. Specifically, your own treasures and found objects will add a sentimental note to your finished piece.
Guests can expect to leave this workshop with one painted and embellished wooden heart that's ready to display. A bonus heart substrate will be available by preorder at a cost of $79 for those guests who would like to complete a second heart during class. (Please note that the price of these also includes all of the instruction, tools, paint, embellishments, and other supplies to finish piece in class.)
Coffee, tea, spa water, and light snacks will be provided throughout our time together.
You may bring your lunch, dine out, or order delivery from our neighbor Crossroads Coffee,
Heart-to-Heart is priced at $179, and space is limited. You may register online here, or by calling us at 910-245-4129.
Guests of Jodi and Jean's Heart to Heart are also invited to join us a day early for two special treats. On Friday morning, share a thrift store shopping experience at some of our favorite stores in The Sandhills, and on Friday night between 5:00 and 8:00, join us as we celebrate the Second Anniversary of ARTworks Vass with amazing art, live music, nibbles, sips, door prizes, and fun!
