MAY WATERCOLOR SERIES -- Thursdays in May, 7:30 - 9:00 p.m.

The Workshop is hosting a four week watercolor series on Thursday nights in May from 7:30-9:00pm. Participants will begin by learning and reviewing basic watercolor techniques. The 5x7 projects include plants, landscape, animal, and doorway. More projects will be added as time allows. It is suggested to attend all the classes, as they build on each other and are progressively more difficult; some projects might take more than one class to complete. However, the classes can be attended individually to accommodate those who are not able to commit to all four classes. Cost is $75 for the series of four classes (May 3, 10, 17, 24) or $20 each when attended individually.

Space is limited, registration is required. Instructor: Kelsey Curkeet.

GLASS MOSAICS -- by appointment (Glass Mosaic Workday scheduled for Sunday, April 29th, 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.)

Occasionally we add glass mosaic workdays to the schedule, but this is a project you can come in any time to make.  We prefer people to make an appointment to make sure there is space and time to complete your project.

All supplies will be available to make 5x7inch or 8x10inch faux stained glass mosaics. If participants prefer to work on a different project, they are welcome to bring other items such as trays, table tops, mail boxes, picture frames, etc. as a base for their mosaic. A 5x7 piece usually takes 2 to 3 hours; an 8x10 piece usually takes 3 to 4 hours. Cost is $25 for a 5x7, $35 for an 8x10.

The first part of the class will consist of gluing the glass pieces to the glass backing. Then the project requires about a half hour of time to sit and harden before grouting. Alternately, you could do the grouting at home with materials and instructions provided.

Children under 14 need to be accompanied by an adult.
