Create a custom, nature-inspired “zine!”

  • Artist: Kirah Van Sickle
  • Limit of Participants: No more than 20
  • Cost: $25 per participant

As a life-long artist, adventurer and visual storyteller, Kirah’s professional accomplishments reflect a creative spectrum ranging from illustration, graphic design, and art educator. Kirah’s custom courses and workshops are rooted in her core fundamentals of art: building painting confidence; connecting to creative voices; and always Inspired by nature and travel. A degreed professional from Duke University, Medical College of Georgia, and an MFA in Painting from the Academy of Art University (San Francisco), Kirah splits time between her homes in Wilmington and Lake Lure (Apple Valley).

Zines (zēnz) are mini, pocket-sized art journals. Created on a single piece of 8.5” x 11” artist paper, we’ll learn the special fold pattern and various art techniques to create your personal design. Zines are a fun way to explore creative mark-making with pencil, markers, collage, and/or paint. The class will use the beauty of Rumbling Bald as its inspiration.
All supplies and handouts will be provided. All artistic skill levels are welcome!

Cost is $25 with payment made directly to Ms. Van Sickle:
