Live in the moment as you glide various household gadgets through colorful paste on paper. Your finished designs can be used for a variety of creative projects, such as making book covers, collages, and handmade cards. You may also incorporate them into designing scrapbook pages, or you could simply frame your favorite paste paper. Instructor: Sigrid Hice
Saturday, November 4 | 1:30 - 3:30 PM | Cost: $40
In this fun-filled class you will learn how to create shaped, non-traditional books, such as the secret room book and an origami accordion book. Then you will fill the pages of the book with pop-ups, photographs, writing, and illustrations, or you can simply enjoy the folds and colors as sculptures. The finished treasures can be used for recording journal entries, poetry, travel journals, reception registers and more, or you can surprise someone with a handmade artist book gift. We’ll use a variety of colored and decorated papers as well as some Asian papers. Instructor: Sigrid Hice
SCHOLARSHIP MONEY AVAILABLE FOR CLASSES
Thanks to the LB Lane Family Foundation and Kulynych Family Foundation, HMA has scholarships available for adults and children who normally can't afford to take classes. One student recipient stated, "The reason I want to attend the Facial Facades camp is because it would help me to achieve my future dream of becoming a beautician. I will get the start I need to begin my path into the world of beauty. One day, I may be able to help people who cannot afford expensive makeovers. I also hope this would be the beginning of some new friendships."
