Painted Stained Glass
Instructor: Lora Zill

If you’d like to explore a new art and craft, try creating a stained glass look without the difficulty and expense of real stained glass. You’ll use paint that is made to simulate the look of real stained glass to create simple, beautiful designs. All materials will be provided: designs to choose from, photo frames, paint, brushes, liquid or strip “leading,” and clean up stuff. This isn’t a messy process, but wear old clothes so you can create without worry. We’ll take two evenings to complete this fun and engaging project.

Thursday nights June 8 & 15    
6:00pm - 7:30pm
$35 per person

Plein air Painting
Instructor: Ben Beck

En plein air, or plein air painting, is a phrase borrowed from the French equivalent meaning "open (in full) air". It is particularly used to describe the act of painting outdoors, also called French: peinture sur le motif ("painting of the object(s) or what the eye actually sees"), where a painter reproduces the actual visual conditions seen at the time of the painting. Join us as we hit local spots for a painting experience unlike any other!

Wednesday Evenings starting June 7th

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what     God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. – Romans 12:2

The texture of this ministry highlights a sense of perspective juxtaposed with reverence as an impression of accomplishing God’s desire in particular harmony with the diversity of creation. In the crucible of this cornucopia of creativity was born Sans MOCO.

So how is a sense of God expressed in a creative forum such as art? First through the development of the God-given skills required to demonstrate this Glory. We will meet the need to develop the artists that are among us and the relationships that God desires in the atelier, or studio, where students will sharpen their skills in drawing, painting and sculpting as well as in the area of prints. It is also our hope that a relationship with God the creator will be forged in these experiences. A winter, summer and fall semester will be offered in a variety of art disciplines:

- Graphic Design

- Screen Printing

- Drawing

- Acrylic Painting

- Etching

- Wood Block Print Making

- Art Appreciation and History

 

These creative expressions will be displayed in the gallery on a monthly basis so that people of all backgrounds and levels of appreciation can experience the hearts and minds of the artists and express their own impressions about how they engage with these representations of the ultimate Creator. When these works are not on display, a permanent gallery will be available of the works of local and national artists. Many of these works will be available for purchase at our gallery shop.

Art as a refuge for the creative mind of all ages is part of the theme of Sans MOCO and has a goal of inter-generational relationships which allow a distinct blending of the passion and imagination of youth with the maturity and perspective of extensive years.

We will be offering a membership to Sans MOCO which, while not exclusive, will provide discounts on services such as:

- Classes

- Press time

- Studio Space (First Come First Serve, very limited)

The atelier will be open on Saturdays for open studio. Bring your own materials, set up and create!

So in order to test what God’s perfect will is, let us not conform to the pattern of this world but let us open our minds to be renewed by God and His love for us through creation in its many forms.
