Join us for a special offering of Outside the Lines with a guest artist.

There is something very fulfilling about hand-making gifts and these roses are perfect for a friend or partner.

Join and find healing while using recycled paper to make these roses. 

Suggested Materials

  • Unwanted paper – magazines, old books, envelopes, canned food labels, gift wrap, out of date road maps, etc.
  • Scissors
  • Elmers (PVA) glue 
  • Twig (or similar)
  • Something to color paper (if you would like)

Outside the Lines

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. 

Outside the Lines is held Bi-Monthly on Wednesdays from 10:30am – 12:00pm. The Social Hour sessions will only run from 10:30-11:30am. 

Upcoming sessions:

  • February 15 
  • March 15 
  • April 19

Suggested donation: $10 per class

About Victoria

Victoria started crafting when she was 13 when her lovely aunt suggested cross-stitch to help her cope with the onset of her chronic illness. Victoria comes from a Make Do and Mend family and has become more passionate about eco-issues as she has gotten older, so now she works almost exclusively with reclaimed materials. She utilizes mostly old magazines, books and sheet music that are beyond saving, and out of date road atlases.
