Color: One of the artists supreme tools

Color: One of the Artists Supreme Tools
with Marlene Bezich

Color, a small word that carries a powerful punch! It is an enigma to some, frustrating to others, but to artists a gift from the heavens!

Our artist Marlene discusses color theory and the use of it within her artwork. Utilizing practical examples, Marlene's instruction helps to simplify the at times complicated aspects of color usage.

Participants leave this workshop with a new confidence in color practice and a greater understanding of color theories.

“Your Name Here”
Creating a Podcast (for fun, but probably notprofit)
with Cindy Clifford

Podcasting is the latest trend – But what is a podcast? Where would you even start to make your own? Funny you should ask!

Podcasting is surprisingly way easier than you would imagine and is every bit as fun. All you need is a smartphone and the basics… a few steps that you’ll need to take and a few other steps you may want to take.

“Your Name Here” podcast can be whatever you want it to be! Naming your podcast is a very important part of the process. A podcast name should grab your audience and identify your theme. Whether you’re tackling a particular subject, sharing a passion, doing interviews, reviews, or just creating a personal podcast with your family or friends, the choice is all yours.

In two 60 minute classes (via Zoom), Cindy goes over concept essentials, content elements, recording, adding finishing touches, and finally the launch!
