March 3, 2022: Zentangle: Climate Change on Coral Reefs

This is Dr. Standley's third session, where you'll be looking at the effects of climate change on the world’s oceans. We’ll also use the Zentangle® method of pattern drawing to create our own coral gardens and talk about ways that you at home can contribute to saving the planet.

Supplies needed:

  • Paper (watercolor paper, sketch book)
  • Black pen
  • Pencil
  • Tortillon (or Q-tip)
  • Colored pencils
  • Watercolors

February 3, 2022: Mandala, Dots, & Secret Meanings

Attend Dr. Standley's second session. The project in this class will be to do a dot painting of a mandala on a rock (but paper will work fine, too). You'll also discuss the meaning of the mandala: a wonderful geometric pattern that has been around since the first century B.C.

Supplies Needed

Rocks, paints, and a pointed tool like a N2 regular pencil (not mechanical), knitting needle, chopsticks, etc.

Types of rocks you could bring include: River rocks – you pick up in public lands along river beds, rocks beds, lakes, streams, etc., Buy a bag from Home Depot, “Rosa” Mexican Beach Pebbles, Caribbean Beach Pebbles

Some type of acrylic paint is best – you want something that is opaque, a little thick, and quick drying.  You can find small bottles of paint at Michaels, JoAnn’s or even Walmart.  Inexpensive paint is best – these are rocks anyway!

Art journaling is the creative process of pulling together color, words, and images as a way to express yourself, experiment, play and have fun.

Supplies Needed

Some sort of paper calendar (daily, weekly or monthly – whatever your preference), adhesive (glue stick) colored pens, markers, paint, etc., something to write with and scissors.
