Description

If you love to collage or are even entirely new to it, this welcoming class will enhance your creativity by allowing you to add depth and texture to your colorful designs. Working within cradled panels, we will collage and paint the background, adding embossed ceramic elements to our compositions to create our own unique works. The ceramic tiles, of varied sizes and shapes, have already been fired, allowing you to stain, paint, or antique them as you like to enhance the depth of your creation.
