Creating Decorative Papers

Sorry, this class has been cancelled.

Date: Feb 1.

No painting skills required for this fun and fast-paced class. Using recycled and inexpensive materials, we will scrape and layer paint, paper, markers, and crayons to create one-of-a-kind decorative papers to use in collage, greeting cards, notebooks, and ornaments. You will leave with a generous collection of decorative papers and plenty of ideas about how to use and keep growing your stash.

Amy Stevens is an arts educator and mixed-media artist with 30+ years of experience, working from her studio overlooking Sanford Lake in Benzie County. She has taught art and English, k-12 and adults, in both public and private school settings, retiring in 2011 after 23 years of teaching literature and composition at Interlochen Arts Academy. She and her husband, John Huston, own and operate Glen Lake Artists Gallery in Glen Arbor. Amy holds a Bachelor of Philosophy and a Master of Education from Grand Valley State University.
