MindEdge Studio: Introduction to Drawing


with MindEdge Instructor

Calendar Current session started Feb 16, 2022

Drawing is a foundational skill that can aid in the development of other creative pursuits. Painters, architects, woodworkers, gardeners, and designers all benefit from honing their drawing skills. But drawing is also an art form in its own right, and learning how to draw can help unlock one's creative potential. Many benefits associated with drawing include increased focus and relaxation, improved creativity and problem solving, and greater hand-eye coordination. In this course, you'll learn the basics of drawing, including how to practice and implement the basic elements of drawing and how to develop a regular habit of drawing and sketching.

Cricut 101


with Rae Rossignol

Calendar Next available session starts Jun 1, 2022 at 6 pm
6 additional sessions through Jun 7, 2023

This class will show you the basics, how to use your cricut and how to get started making simple projects. We will begin with a short tutorial of how to use Cricut Design Space.  

We will complete 1 project: 

     1. Cut a word/name using vinyl and adhere it to a clear water bottle

There are two options for this class, you can be an active participant or a passive observer. 

To be an active participant you MUST bring your device to class (laptop, iPad, tablet) with Cricut Design Space ALREADY downloaded. It is optional to bring your cricut machine but please bring your green cutting mat and any weeding tools you may have. You will need to connect to the Cricut with a cord or by Bluetooth. You can plug into one of ours to cut your projects if you choose not to bring your machine. All of the magic happens on Cricut Design Space!   

To be a passive participant means that you will watch, learn and maybe take notes on how things are done. You will not be able to design your own water bottle and download a project to print and assemble. This is a good option if you simply want to see what a cricut is and how it works before you purchase one for yourself. 

All materials will be provided for you.

*If you need assistance downloading Cricut Design Space, please plan to arrive at class AT LEAST 30 minutes early and notify the adult education office of this need. We are happy to help you! However, please note that we will not use regular class time to walk you through the download. We will assist you with this at the end of the class. You will be able to watch and learn how things work but you will not be able to participate in making the projects on your own.
