Color Your World With Art 2016 WORKSHOPS EVENTS EXHIBITIONS THREE PINES STUDIO A coloring book is a yoga mat for your mind Johanna Basford created The Secret Garden coloring book. In her words A blank sheet of paper can be daunting but a coloring book has the outlines already there making it easier to pick up a pencil and begin making your mark. I think of coloring books as collaborations. I create the artwork and the owner of the book brings the color. Being in the flow or immersed in a task like coloring seems to help soothe many people. Some time spent with the simple task of adding color to a page and creating something beautiful really seems to appeal to people. As we celebrate our 16th year at Three Pines Studio we focus our energy on quiet creativity and the mindfulness art can bring to our daily lives. Adults can rediscover simple mark making and children can explore the effortlessness of creating during our Coloring on the Porch Tuesdays in July and August. At Three Pines Studio we refer to coloring books as a yoga mat for your mind . These weekly coloring sessions are a fun calming way to naturally reduce stress and also spend time outdoors alongside friends and family. Following the theme of mindfulness and awareness through creativity Three Pines artists explore the relationships with everyday objects that inhabit their world with the Memorial Day weekend 2016 invitational exhibition titled Still Life A Modern Take. Three Pines is also excited to be hosting the exhibition Letters A Word is a Letter with Friends in conjunction with the first ever Harbor Springs Festival of the Book which will take place fall 2016. Outside the gallery walls of Three Pines the inspiring scenic meditation and perennial gardens offers everyone who visits our studio an opportunity to enjoy the natural beauty of our space here in Northern Michigan. In addition to Coloring on the Porch we will cultivate creativity through our own studios open studio days and workshop offerings. The hands-on aspect of our working fiber and ceramic studios offers a shared experience for our visitors so they can better understand our creative process by watching us work. Three Pines encourages everyone to create and we provide the opportunity to do so through our summer workshops. Over 100 workshops are offered in just a six- month period to visiting and resident artists. This summer we scheduled the popular drop inopen studio days for a third season giving everyone the chance to use studio time for fiber dying and surface design while supporting a flexible schedule. Our kids summer workshops educate and inspire participants by integrating a different artist and their creative process into each workshop. Kids will learn to paint cut paper collage and sculpt by experimenting with a variety of materials such as metal wire wood cut paper and paint. Through our workshop offerings we have been fortunate to meet many families and have watched kids grow up move to schools near and far and eventually start their own families. Each one touched in a special way by the shared creativity here in our studio. We hope to continue to inspire new creative experiences this upcoming year and into the future. 231.526.94471 Founded in 2000 in Cross Village Michigan by Gene Reck and Joann Condino Three Pines Studio is a working artists studio and sales gallery in the arts and crafts tradition.
