Learn the basics of grouting as you combine, tiles, natural elements and unexpected objects into beautiful outdoor art for your garden. We’ll discuss design, how to select materials and the proper technique to create mixed media art you’ll be proud to display. I’ll guide you through every step of the process and each student will leave with a 18x10 inch or 10x10 inch outdoor art piece. You don’t have to consider yourself an artist to have fun in this class! Everyone is welcome and no prior experience is necessary. All materials are provided. However, if you have a special item you want to work into your piece, like a shell, rock, old piece of jewelry, trinket or other found object, please bring it along.
I am a local artist who loves giving objects new life through art. For as long as I can remember, art has been part of who I am. Growing up as an only-child in rural Oregon, I often spent the day exploring the woods, searching for treasures to use in my creations. I have gone on to study mosaics, mixed media, painting and printmaking. Now, I help other people tap into their natural creativity. My workshops are a safe space for everyone to explore their inner artist and breathe new life into some of their favorite treasures.
