Let your worries melt away as you are guided through each step of this painting -- this is the perfect class for beginners and experienced painters alike.

You will go home with three completed ornaments and a printed instruction sheet just in case you want to make some with grandkids or make more at home!
Faux Pottery Monday, October 25
Learn a creative way of transforming glass vases, bowls, bottles, jars, etc., to look like real pottery. You will select 3 pieces from a variety of glass containers, then give each piece the appearance of actual "pottery." Lots of special paint color choices will be available for you to select from. When you have finished all your pieces, one container will include a faux succulent (YIPPEE - the faux plant does not need to be watered or cared for, just be beautiful all the time). Kristin Nadeau, the instructor of this class will give you ideas and suggestions on grouping your faux pottery and/or where each piece can be staged throughout your home. Come join us for this fun class! No special skills required!
