Developing the art community
One of my goals as an artist is to expand the art community. I teach classes focusing on specific skills and host workshops and studio days that allow others to work in my studio. The workshops and studio days expand the community and allow others to create art with shared resources in a community studio evnironment instead of solo.
Mosaic Workshops: Every Friday Afternoon 2-5 PM
Learn how to create tile or glass mosaics. Start a new project or continue an existing project.
Use my materials and tools or bring your own. Friendly and fun environment. All levels welcome. All basic materials included.
This is your opportunity: for just $20, see if you like mosaics, learn a new technique, meet new friends, work in a fully stocked studio. We always have a wonderful Friday afternoon of community and art.
