Teacher: Kisma

FOR A LISTING OF ALL KISMA'S CLASSES please visit her website:

Inside each of us an artist resides. Perhaps your artist is scared and hiding. Perhaps your artist is peeking out from behind a curtain. Perhaps your artist is standing in the sunlight, paintbrush in hand with smeared paint on fingers and hands. Kisma welcomes and celebrates each level of Artist!


We Come Together to Play and explore Intentional Creativity.


I offer projects for Art Journals, Altered Books and Mixed Media Art. While my classes are on-going, I recommend you check our Class Calendar for the current project and dates.


WEDNESDAYS - MIXED MEDIA ART

Each project will cover a specific focus, techniques and tool demonstrations.

Months that contain five weeks will feature a UFO work space at the normal class time.


THURSDAYS - Projects will alternate between ART JOURNALS and ALTERED BOOKS


Art Journal: In each project offered, Kisma will cover a broad range of techniques, including supplies along with special tool demonstrations. Projects can span 2 - 4 weeks in length and include all supplies needed.


Altered Books: Using old re-purposed signature books, we work with collage, pop-ups, add-ons, pockets, hidden boxes and more. These books become unique pieces of art known to be exhibited in museums and galleries. Watch my short video: Altered Books Intro.


See sections below for specific class type.
