Assemblage, a dimensional version of collage that uses collected and repurposed objects to form a cohesive creation will capture your imagination with its depths, layers and vital skills.

Dee Gray will introduce you to an exploration of techniques including painting, layering, stenciling, and distressing of this unique, vintage style creation, measuring 14'' tall. We will discuss design aspects which include embellishing with faceted glass beads, German glitter glass, tin light reflectors, clay and wood objects. You will learn to determine the best adhesive choices for different substrates. Her invaluable skills can be used in any and all aspects of your creative artistic expressions, giving your work a sense of value and meaning. Dee will also provide a variety of word banners for you to select from such as: “I love you to the moon and back”, “SWEET DREAMS”, “SHOOT FOR THE MOON” and “SHINE ON”.

Bring your imagination, curiosity, and the materials listed below to create your assembled work of art, and leave with skills that will allow you to create more of your own assemblage pieces.
