Saturday, July 26, 3 pm VISUAL
JOURNALING with June Calender
Visual journaling (in a medium known as "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 will
teach "History of the American Quilt" this fall at the Academy for Lifelong Learning at Cape Cod Community College.

bringing together unusual and sometimes unlikely images in a mixed-media mashup that somehow makes sense...and opens your
eyes to new ways of seeing. (Above: All That Remains by

23, 2:30 pm THINK OUTSIDE THE VASE with Janet Turner
People always notice floral artist Janet Turner's unique 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 to make botanical art.
