Remember the fascination with dioramas as a kid? They just seemed to contain the world in a box. Now’s your chance to create four small, vintage style Vignette Boxes that promise to be keepsakes!
Dee Gray will guide you through the process of creating a set of vignettes that have depth, personality and most of all…wonder! You will learn layering techniques with paint, distressing, special finishes, and assembling objects of personal interest. Incorporating words and messages will top off this one-of-a-kind mixed media art that will be ready to display by the end of class.
