Create It! Community Art Studios in Clear Waters Life Center-Gonvick has new hours for Mentor Mondays. Karen and LeAnne will be available to help you with your projects from 1:00 to 6:00 PM each Monday. Whether you want to do pottery, mosaics, jewelry, beading, scrapbooking, painting or something else, they will do their best to answer your questions, encourage, and/or jump in and help you, if an extra pair of hands are needed. Our extended hours will allow you to drop in after work or bring your kids after school. Trust your creative side, even if you don’t think that you have one.
The new mentor hours will not affect the studio hours. If you are a member and/or are working on a project and confident in what you are doing, you are welcome in the studios anytime that the Gonvick building is open: Monday, 9:30 AM to 6:00 PM, and Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, 9:30 AM to 3:00 PM.
In addition to regular Mentor Mondays, the second Monday of each month Create It! will be hosting a guest artist for a unique hands-on learning experience. June 13 will be garden art. You can find the full schedule (thru December 12) on our website: www.clearwaterslife.org or follow us on Facebook. If you prefer e-mail reminders, just call or e-mail our Clearbrook Office, 218-776-2789 or email@example.com, and ask to be added to our Create It! e-mail list.
Remember, too, the second Monday of each month has Senior Connection cooking classes! If cooking is your creative outlet or not, you will want to join us, 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM for these free classes. Each class feature nutritious, affordable, and easy to make dishes, PLUS you get to sample them!
So, make a day of it! Invite a friend. Come for the cooking class and stay for an afternoon of art fun. All of our Create It! art activities meet you where you are as a beginner or someone with intermediate or advanced skills. There is a nominal charge for our busy art Mondays; $5.00 covers instruction and all supplies.
These activities are made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board and Region 2 Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund
