Not Your Ordinary Art Class

I have finally found an art group that meets monthly in my part of town. It is called Not Your Ordinary Art Class. I have been searching for this type of group for several years! What a great way to start the new year! The ladies are all so sweet and welcoming. The group started 15 years ago so that tells me it's a good one!

Each month I will learn a new skill, have lunch, and swap artist trading cards (ATC) with the group. ATCs are miniature pieces of art that are traded in swap groups. The only official rule is that they are 2.5 x 3.5 inches in size. Our ATCs will have a theme, usually drawing on the skill of what we learned the previous month. This month, though, we started with our "word of the year". Through the holidays, I had been searching for my word of the year when I noticed a Facebook challenge showed up in my feed that offered to help me find my word of the year. I took FB up on their offer and my word became "wisdom!"
