Happy Holidays

Thank you for another wonderful year of exploring creative ways to use old (and new) things,
and for giving me the opportunity to stay connected with so many talented students/artists/friends.

I'm looking forward to a new year with new
Mixed Media Adult and Kid/Teen classes starting in January.
I hope you are too!

Registration is now open for the Winter/Spring sessions.

Sign up to be inspired, play with materials, explore new techniques,
and create amazing 2D/3D found object art with like-minded people.

Also, mark your calendars for the January 19 Monday Night Artist Presentation,
where I'll be giving a presentation on Mixed Media.

Keep creating!
