Art Workshop

The Union I belong to provides us with 2 Professional Development Days per year. This year, I decided to offer an Art Workshop in the community, providing a day of creating art journals, altered books, and other creative projects.  I was able to reserve a room at the public library for free, and asked participants to bring a journal, old book, or scrap book/album to use.  I also encouraged them to bring photos, mementos, and any other items they would like to include in their project.  A couple participants had not had much art experience, so they were able to learn new techniques and get ideas for projects.  For a couple of us, it was a nice opportunity to do some art work and be creative for an uninterrupted period of time.
