Watch Trailer

Celebrate what you are grateful for in this exploratory art-making workshop. You will focus on using collage as the vehicle to explore all the wonderful things you can be thankful for in your life. The great part is you don’t need any experience with artistry of any kind. Experiment with your art materials while your guides provide you with the structure and insight you need to create your meaningful mixed media painting. Your completed painting will be a beautiful “quilted” patchwork of images, patterns, lines and colors that reflect the life experiences you are thankful for.
