The store has been blessed with having local artists Michael Putman and Lesley Fisher (aka Jack & Cat Curio) to come into our store once a month and share their Ranger secrets, altered art knowledge and amazing teaching skills. Every project is unique and class participants leave with new skills and an enjoyable class experience.
December's class is a Love Nest Shadow Box. In this class students will create a special one of a kind altered art box. Students will be guided in various techniques for ageing and producing exciting textures out of everyday objects. UV Resin will also be introduced in how best to create glazed tops for collage work. Lots of imagery will be on hand for students to use. However students are encouraged to use personal imagery in their pieces. If they would like to use personal imagery from their own collections, they will need to e-mail the images to us for image preparation. So dig out your family photos. All supplies will be provided. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or imagery for class.
