Inspired April Art Night Out Classes

Check out our April Art Night Out® schedule! We have been inspired by all of the new ideas Catherine brought back from her exciting trip to the Craft and Hobby Association (CHA) show this year.  At the CHA show artists from around the world gather to share ideas and inspiration. Artascope Studios founder Catherine Bickford went to the CHA and the Gem Show in Tucson, AZ and learned about new materials and techniques that now we get to incorporate into classes at Artascope this spring.

Art Night Out® classes are all about personalization and showing the world how exceptionally unique we are. This April you can learn how to use collage to make personally meaningful art in the Collage Resin Pendant class. Or create a story with a necklace that will be 100% yours as you learn wire working techniques and add charms, findings and beads. Personalize your cell phone or i-pod with the felted cover, or create your own rubber stamps and make everything from your grocery list to party invitations personalized with your own seal. Check out the whole list of Art Night Out® classes start to personalize your life!

Some of the the national artists that Catherine met at the CHA show are coming to Maine and you can take Art Escape® classes from them at Artascope this year. Donna Downey comes in June to teach “Simply Irresistible Surfaces”,  in September Claudine Hellmuth teaches “Beeswax Collage” and Catherine Matthews-Scanlon teaches “Sewn Paper Cards” in November. There are Art Escape® classes every month with great teachers, like Gina Lee Kim’s Watercolor Class in the Summer and Fall, and Bethany Haeseler teaching “Stained Glass with Fusing Techniques” this April.
