The Spring + Summer season of Tacklebox Girls Club kicked off on February 26, and we are so excited to have more girls joining us in the upcoming months. Spaces are limited, and our next meeting is March 26th, so sign up now. Want to know what Tacklebox Girls Club is all about? TGC is a local, creative program for middle-school girls. We emphasize the importance of using creativity and camaraderie to help deal with stress, build confidence, and promote happiness! During each meeting, we will do journaling, arts & crafts projects, and hear from “Rosie.” Rosie is our 1959 Hermes Typewriter who writes advice letters to the gals. Girls are encouraged to write to Rosie, and every week, we read a typed response from her. In addition to the meetings, we give the girls inspiration through our Pinterest boards and blog and special birthday mail! Each meeting’s price covers all instruction, supplies, snacks, and beverages. We meet at: 24000 Robinson Canyon Rd. Carmel, Ca 93923. (Next to the Carmel Valley Mercantile!) Emily, the CVM owner, is gracious enough to allow us to utilize her workshop and outdoor space for Girls Club in addition to our Clubhouse.
3 hour, monthly meetings. We will have 5 total meetings, one of which will be an extra-special summer addition to the program.
The price is $80/meeting. If you sign your gal up for 4 out of 5 of the meetings, the price is only $75 per meeting. (The same price as the old program)
Previews! I’m giving a little sneak-peek of what we will be working on. This will be so great for the girls- now they will know if they should collect things for our projects. (photos, magazine clippings, notes, etc)
TGC Spring Season dates:
1:30-4:30, Sunday, February 26th
“Self-care February” features a drawing project to help girls find time for themselves and art during their daily life. We will also craft a fun project to house their art supply goodies!
1:30-4:30, Sunday, March 26th
“Matchbox March” The girls and I will create truly unique vignettes inside of a matchbox. They will learn new watercolor, collage, and layering techniques. Think… fifth-grade-science-diorama, but cuter.
1:30-4:30, Sunday, April 23rd
“Art Journal April” Learn new art journal techniques with collage, image transfer, and try out some new supplies. (Don’t worry, there will still be washi-tape and gel pens too!) I will be supplying a small 3-ring binder, so the girls can take this home and add to their journal over time! Over the next few months, I encourage the girls to collect photos, ephemera, notes, magazine clippings, etc. These will make really dynamic pages.
1:30-4:30, Sunday, June 25th
“Summer Camp June” Make a tiny book of envelopes and special pages to document your summer break, store your stamp or sticker collection, or to send to a friend. We will learn a basic bookbinding technique together and then your imagination can run wild.
1:30-4:30, Sunday, July 16th
“Extra-Special July” Over the next few months, I will be writing down suggestions from the girls on projects or ideas they would like to do for an end-of-the-season celebration workshop. A month before this meeting, I will send out an email and reveal what special project we will do! I’m also open to ideas from the parents too!
