Workshop Summary

Deco Mesh Wreath - Come learn the technique I use to make our beautiful Deco Mesh wreaths!  You can pick the color(s) of Deco Mesh and ribbons for your wreath from our in-store supplies to make a wreath customized to your home/house/dock decor.  All supplies are included in the price of this class.  Any additional signage or embellishments added to the wreath are an additional cost.

Zentangle Drawing Workshop-Zentangle is an easy to learn, and fun method to draw beautiful images using structured patterns.  You will start with the outline of an image that you will draw freehand.  You will then section off the image into compartments.  And in each of these compartments you will draw a specific structured pattern (doodle) to enhance the image.

Oil Painting - Start with a blank canvas and end up with a masterpiece!  Your instructor, local artist Dana Phillips, will give you step-by-step instruction on how to layout, sketch and paint a lake themed landscape using oil paints.  All levels of experience welcome, but NO PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE OR TALENT IS REQUIRED!  All supplies are included in the cost of the class.

String Art Workshop - Enjoy a fun afternoon/evening playing with string to make a beautiful dandelion picture.  You will work from a template to hammer nails into a 10"x10" board that is stained black.  Step-by-step instruction will be provided to guide you through the addition of different strings to create the dandelion design.  Finally add a vinyl stencil with the words "Make a Wish..." to complete your picture.
