We will begin with Artful Books, which are handmade structures like star books, accordion books, flag books piano hinged books, lots of fun expressive ideas infused with your own creativity and composed with your own thoughts, prose or quotes. Begins April 1st. 4 Wednesdays from 10am to 1pm

On Saturdays we have Assemblage Using a base that you bring in, perhaps a birdhouse, a box or anything sturdy we will collage, paint, assemble and adorn your item with an array of memorabilia, paper, text, game pieces, the possibilities are endless! Begins Saturday, March 28th 11am to 2pm

Then, have fun with ATC's (Artist Trading Cards) in this class which is full of fun techniques like rubber stamping, embossing, collage, watercolor, transparencies, inkjet transfers and more. You'll leave with several cards that are like miniature art pieces to keep or to trade.  One day workshop, April 17th 10am to 1pm
