Well! We have made it through Kentucky Winters. Spring has entered our area, and beautiful days we have had. You know Spring is around the corner when the Forsythia Bush is in bloom, and we have spotted it! So what is going on at the Shine House in March? First the plumbing is fixed and we are open regular hours. Yay! Also we are celebrating March as Youth Art Month! So bring your kids in and be creative with us. We have classes scheduled multiple times on Tuesday, Thursdays, and Friday. You are always welcome to come in and make art during our open studio hours. March also is national nutritional month. We are honoring that with a class lead by Michaela Hoskins on the 24th at noon. It is a vegan cooking class, but you of course do not need to be a vegan to attend.

Installation Preperation

Art Installations create different worlds inside of a space. Installation is an artistic work that is three-dimensional and is often designed to transform the perception of a space. If you’ve been to The Shine House you have seen the black roses on the ceiling of one of our most used community art rooms. It is time for something new, the black roses, pearls, and prisms hanging from the ceiling are lovely but we would like to create a community installation. We are going to be prepping during this class period for this installation, which will be beautiful 3D egg cartons dyed to create Wisteria inside The Shine House art room! Come be part of the process of creating our new art installation in community! Space is limited but this class and creation is FREE to participate in!
