3. Playing with Resin: Monday, January 18, 6:30-9:30pm. Learn how to use resin in your artwork! Instructor Tracy Wilkerson will show you how to “play” with resin
in a safe environment and learn the ins and outs of mixing resin and using it—as an adhesive, a covering, or the main medium.

4. Secrets of the Paper Garden: Hand-dyed Paper Flowers: Sunday, January 24, 1-4pm. Artist Debbie Smith Mezzetta is back with a new recipe for colorful paper flowers
using a unique paper—it’s a secret (and conveniently available and inexpensive)! Come to class and find out! Students will learn easy and fun techniques for hand-dying and creating flowers from the “secret” ingredient—psst, it goes great with coffee.
