workshops, classes and more!

We keep our commercial presence to one monthly post so that we can share other opportunities to take workshops, purchase art or enjoy other offerings from all of us. Check out our workshops and  books. Thank you for being a part of the Sketchbook Challenge! It's an honor to share this journey with you.


Join Lyric Kinard on-line for Artist's Toolbox   If you have always had the  desire to be an artist or simply wish to increase your knowledge, Lyric  will teach you the basic alphabet of art as a visual language.  You will learn by completing a series of exercises in paper and cloth in your sketchbook.  By the end of class, you will have a complete and unique textbook of your new tools.  A supportive and encouraging environment will boost your design abilities and your appreciation of fine art, whether you are a traditional quilter or an aspiring art quilter.  Level: Anyone interested in improving their understanding of art principles.
