Explore your creative side by combining decoupage, collage, and your ideas! Decoupage is the art of decorating an object with colored papers and clippings, applying special paint effects, gold leaf, and other adornments, and sealing the layers with varnish to give a finished, polished appearance. In this six-week class, students will turn found objects, cut tissue paper, magazines, or photos into decorative works of 3-D art. Tell your story on trays, wooden boxes, glass plates, or canvas to give as gifts or to keep. No experience is necessary to enjoy this fun-filled and creative process.
