Free your mind and play with color, form, and symbolism in this two-day mixed media 
workshop. You will draw, paint, scribble, scrape, and scratch on a 20 x 20" board, layering it with personal meaning and plenty of surprises! 

Artist Kelly Boyle returns to Raven Hill for another year. This year, she will focus on a mixed-media art project. Kelly will demonstrate her techniques and everyone will go home at the end of the second day with their own 20” x 20” piece of art. The class will be limited to ten participants. For more information or to register, call Cheri at 231-536-3369 or email

This class is designed for the novice beginner, intermediate, or the more advanced & accomplished artist. As always, this informal workshop will be a motivational, creative, and inspirational session with enjoyment and camaraderie among friends and fellow artists.  

Kelly Boyle is a Lansing-area print-maker, art teacher and muralist who sees a blank wall as an ideal canvas for expression and community involvement. Her first community mural, “Meridian in Motion,” was painted during Meridian Township’s annual summer festival in 2016 and involved over 250 community members. “Anyone who wanted to paint was welcome,” says Boyle.  “We had toddlers, teens, seniors – even a dog!” The mural was designed so that each person could creatively paint his or her own small section.  After the festival, Boyle put on finishing touches that made the mural come together as a whole. Boyle designed and directed a three-panel water-themed community project at Raven Hill Discovery Center in East Jordan during the summer of 2018 and a welcome sign in 2019 illustrating the science, history and art aspects of Raven Hill’s mission. “There’s a special energy, when people are painting together – a peaceful, purposeful excitement,” says Boyle.  “And I love seeing the community’s pride in the mural they created.” In 2021, Kelly painted two dinosaur panels for the new Connections Trail at Raven Hill. This year the workshop will focus on individual panels with that same “special energy, when people are painting together – a peaceful, purposeful excitement.
