Topiary on Salvaged Wood

Susan Rossiter
6:00 - 10:00
Tuesday Eve

[back to quicklinks]
$ 125  

Finding inspiration in any circumstance is a great characteristic. During a long string of cold, dreary days I started painting cloudy skies. The paintings evolved to include a happy little topiary tree. This is Mixed Media at it’s best- we’ll be using high quality acrylic paints, collage papers and some papers I made myself. You’ll personalize your piece with color/pattern choices and create your own inspirational messages in the clouds. This class is for any skill level. Feel free to email if you have any questions.
