COTTONWOOD -- The Monastery of St. Gertrude will host “Summer Days of Art at St. Gertrude,” lighthearted Saturday art classes, that take place 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 27, Aug. 17, and Sept. 7 and 21.
The series begins with gelli plate printing with artist Karla Neumann-Smiley. Using acrylic paints and gelli plates, participants will create easy monoprints that can be used in a variety of ways. Neumann-Smiley is an artist, St. Gertrude’s oblate, campus minister at University of Idaho, and part-time minister at Troy Lutheran Church. She is on the St. Gertrude’s Spirituality & Arts team and is a facilitator for the Embracing the Artistic Call cohort.
The classes continue on Aug. 17 with Zentangle, led by Sara Zientech; Sept. 7 with collage and painting led by Laurie Chapman; and Sept. 21 with eco-printing led by Heather Berndt.
For each class, materials are provided, and no experience is necessary. Lunch and snacks included. Each event is limited to 10 participants. Adult registration is $60. Kids who are accompanied by an adult and who are able to sustain engagement in a four-hour project are welcome to attend for free.
The art classes take place in the multipurpose room at St. Gertrude’s, 465 Keuterville Road, Cottonwood. To learn more and register visit stgertrudes.org or call 208-962-5065. ADA accessible; call to arrange assistance.
