weekend paint parties
Weekend Paint Parties are a time to sit back, let your hair down to unwind and have fun while painting something that is entirely guided from start to finish. These weekend classes are 16+ and we ask that no children attend.
The Weekend Paint Parties also focus on being a respite away from the crazy world and an anchor to the quiet and calm while offering laughs in a place of peace.

Holiday Collage with Christina (December 3rd) –
Finding your inner power collage with Christina
What is Collage?
Introduction to Collage:
Collage comes from the Old French word “collet” which means “to glue.” But there
are so many reasons to fall in love with the art of collage, far more than just gluing pieces to a scrapbook! Collage is an art form created by Pablo Picasso in the early twentieth century and is a freeing form of art you can learn to make that gives you a space to tell your own personal story by creating something expressive and uniquely you simply by the pieces you choose to include.
Meet Your Instructor
Major (Retired) Christina Helferich-Polosky is a Carlisle based multi-media artist and retired US Army Officer.
Christina is founder and artist of Wounded Not Worthless, an organization based on helping female veterans find themselves through art. Read more at:
Learn this process and so much more during this introductory class on December 3 from 7 pm to 9 pm and January 14th 2023 7-9 at the nDesign Studio taught by local collage artist Christina Helferich-Polosky.
You will be given the basic tools and materials to create a piece that will tell your own story through this powerfully creative process. You are welcome to bring your own meaningful material, such as a vintage book or personal pictures or papers (that you are willing to cut up and glue) if you’d like. But we will have lots of collage materials on hand at the studio!
The January 14th class will delve into what it means to find YOUR inner power and find YOUR voice and how to incorporate this into your very own collage piece.
All artistic skill levels are encouraged to attend.
Cost is $45 per person (1 ART PASS PUNCH) which includes everything you’ll need to complete your own 8 x 10 collage piece.
