KIFA Announces Six New Classes

Just when you think you cannot take another gray, cold and windy day, you’ll have a chance to brighten up with color and style! KIFA is pleased to announce the introduction of ShaDeeLa Creative Workshops at the KIFA gallery/studio. These workshops will help you tap into your own creative expression while learning skills and techniques that are the foundation for your future projects. Explore new mediums and enjoy the process of building a finished piece of art, all under the skilled guidance of ShaDeeLa’s instructors. Whether you are formally trained, self taught or just have the desire to create, these workshops provide a comfortable atmosphere for exchanging ideas and enjoying the camaraderie of fellow participants.

Two upcoming Jane Halliwell-Green classes are also scheduled for February and March. Jane is a well known textile designer and teacher, fiber artist and author. She was the first fiber artist invited to teach at the Smithsonian in Washington D.C., and was affiliated with this institution for over 6 years. KIFA is proud to bring Jane back this year for two painting workshops.
