November 20, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

with Kiersten Gallagher and Heather Levy

Join Kiersten and Heather on November 6th & 20th for a two-part batik art series in Outside the Lines. In the simple batik process that we will be teaching, you can enjoy the beauty of fabric batik without the danger of hot wax or dyes. Attendees will all go home with a set of four cotton dinner napkins. This project requires that you attend both classes.  Please RSVP so we are sure to have enough napkins for everyone.
If you would like to work on your own projects during the two-part batik sessions, you may use the space and bring your own work!

Creative expression has often been used in the healing process and it is at the core of Smith Center’s philosophy, but fear of judgment and “not being an artist” can often prevent us from tapping into its healing power. Join us for Outside the Lines, where a facilitator will help you reclaim art-making as a healing tool through guided creative projects. Participants who feel comfortable working on their own projects are also welcome to do so. Our extensive collection of supplies is available for all to use.

This series is held twice each month on Wednesdays from 10:30am – 12:30pm. 

Upcoming sessions: 

  • November 20
  • December 4 & 18

Our programs are open to the community, and tailored to meet the needs of people affected by cancer. Classes and workshops are free or low cost on a pay-as-you-can basis, ensuring that our programs are accessible to everyone.

Suggested donation: $10 per class
