ARTIST OF THE MONTH: SALLIE STRAND

Sallie Strand began her career first as a pastry chef, and later as a dietitian. With an artist father and an interior decorator mother, Sallie was infused with art and color from an early age. Though mostly self taught, Sallie continues to take master classes and workshops with professional artists such as Lisa Pressman, Rebecca Crowell, Tim Hawksworth and Steven Aimone.

Not surprisingly, Sallie finds many similarities between baking and painting and often uses many of those utensils to create textures through layering, mark making, and scraping.

Sallie Strand splits her time between studios in Waltham at Lincoln Studios: 289 Moody St #303 and 75 Rocky Neck Ave in Gloucester.

ARTIST'S RECEPTION: Thursday, November 16th,  5 - 8 pm.

Mindfulness for Children with Sheryl White
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

For families and their Children, ages 3 - 5

What is Mindfulness?  “Being in the present moment, with awareness, on purpose and non-judgemental.”  Jon Kabat Zin

It really means to have kids notice their thoughts, feelings and senses in the moment to help them to relax, focus and have fun.

In this class, the emphasis is on engaging the children’s senses through activities.  Sheryl comes prepared with a bag of sensory props and uses different objects to engage and help the children practice how to be more in the present moment. These activities can be relaxing and many children will share how good they felt during and after the session.

Why emphasize the senses?  It is the awareness that is created during the activity that is beneficial not the activity itself.  When the senses are used the mind can’t drift off and they can’t get lost in thought and the result is MINDFULNESS!

Registration is limited to ten families.  Sign up starts Monday, January 22nd at the Youth Services Desk.

For more information, visit Sheryl's website.
