This class is now being taught by Susan Rossiter

Creating new and exciting mixed media projects is right up professional artist Denise Braun’s Alley. And this 3D Grunge Heart is full of crunchy, bright texture. The heart itself is made from composite wood, measuring 14 “ tall and 5” wide. Together, we’ll be creating graffiti, texturizing the hearts with crackle and oil pastel and designing a pair of wings to suit your 3D creation. There’s no limit to the fun! Metal adornments will be available in class to further embellish your heart.
