JAMMED PACKED APRIL CLASSES AND WORKSHOPS GALORE!

Alcohol Inks on Tiles – Snowy Peaks High School Next month I will be teaching  a class for Snowy Peaks High School in the backroom classroom of Arts Alive Gallery in Breckenridge. I have learned how to make my own alcohol inks and markers and will teach a class on it. We will decorate the plain white bathroom tiles with the alcohol inks and practice adding and removing colors. We will add stamps to tiles and some finishing touches to make OOAK tiles.

Wounded Warriors Project
I will be teaching a precious metal clay class to 9 or 10 (persons) of the Wounded Warrior families coming to Breckenridge for a week of skiing, snowboarding, counseling, skating & art therapy. We are planning to have this class at the Fuqua in the Breckenridge Arts District on April 9th. We will make charms and a pendant with a set-in stone. Attendees will take the charms with them and the pendants will be delivered to them at their farewell dinner.
