THINK OUTSIDE THE VASE with Janet Turner, 3 pm

janetthinkoutsidevase.jpgPeople always notice Janet Turner’s unique floral arrangements at the Chat House. One of her secrets is to work with the natural shapes and characteristics of plants and flowers rather than trying to force them into a preconceived idea of what a floral arrangement should look like. In this free demonstration, Janet will show you how to “think outside the vase,” using unusual containers and common plants and flowers.

VISUAL JOURNALING with June Calender, 2 pm

visualjournal.JPGVisual journaling (in a medium called "art quilting") is similar to collage. It's done with fabric, embroidery, embellishing, and sometimes painting. June Calender will show pieces from her "year of visual journaling" and talk about how anyone can use visual journaling to capture the essence of a day or week or month, and how artists and artisans can incorporate these experiences into other kinds of visual art. June teaches "Writing with the Whole Brain" and "History of the American Quilt" at the Academy for Lifelong Learning at Cape Cod Community College.

mcgarrlakebirch.jpegThe wonders of watercolor are its fluidity and its transparency. The magic of blending color and water on wet paper is exciting to see. If you've always wanted to "paint loose," come to this demonstration of "gravity painting" by artist Dick McGarr and try it yourself!
