Join Lisa Cohn and Melissa Kelly, trained art therapists, for the month of November at The Art Loft in exploring the endless ways to create a collage. From Altered Books to SoulCollage® to Image Transfers. Collage relieves the pressure for those who do not feel confident in their artistic abilities. The collage process is also a wonderful way to spark new ideas and stimulate thought. Feel free to bring your own images and objects for collage or use what we have available. The possibilities of collage are endless, you are only limited by your imagination.
This class is a drop-in class; free to members and $20 for non-members.
