Arts & DIY
Introduction to Decoupage
Use collage techniques to create a one-of-a-kind conversation piece for your home. Participants will be selecting images from magazines and print materials, then artfully arranging these onto “useful” items like frames, jewelry boxes, coasters and trivets.
There will be a variety of items to choose from, and each participant will leave class with one finished piece. Learn how to combine and layer images to decorate your own house wares.
No previous art experience required.
