Making Your Mark In-Store Class
Saturday, February 18, 11:30am-4:30pm
Instructor: Fran Meneley
Limit: 6 students

Class Details

Have you ever heard an inner voice whispering “I’d like to learn to draw” but it seems a bit daunting? Then this class, which is for novices, is a good place to start. Strictly speaking, it’s not a drawing class but more about learning how to connect with a piece of paper through sight, heart, and hand. Experienced artists may also enjoy it, though, since there’s something for everyone to explore. 

Local artist Fran Meneley is a mark maker of long standing as well as a devoted journaler. She leads the class in exploring what it means to make marks and how the ones created by each individual are unique and beautiful. She starts the class with images showing a large variety of drawings and mark making examples, then provides five exercises leading you to a final project or a finished piece. All materials are provided. (Those who’ve taken other classes with Fran know she has good stuff and brings lots to share!)

The class is an exercise in experimentation, but with a guarantee that you’ll leave with a new way of looking at and connecting with a blank sheet of paper. Just come with an open heart and mind!

Masks are optional and encouraged for all students and instructors.
Students will be provided their own set of tools, which are sanitized between every class session. Due to the size of our class space we are unable to practice social distancing in the classroom. Please contact ahead of time if you have specific questions regarding class covid safety.

    Class Refund/Cancellation Policy

    IN-STORE CLASSES: Cancellations made up to 14 days prior to the first class meeting will be refunded or, at the participant's option, used to pay for another class. Two Hands Paperie will retain a $10 processing fee for EACH class cancelled by a participant. After 14 days, there is no refund or credit. In addition, the fee for a class cancelled within this 14-day timeframe by a participant cannot be transferred to pay for another class. These policies are to ensure that teachers are compensated for their investment in materials and in time spent preparing for the class. We reserve the right to cancel a class if fewer than 3 students enroll 48 hours prior to the scheduled class time. If for any reason Two Hands Paperie cancels a class, students will be called at the phone number on file and refunded the FULL class fee.
