9:30am - 12 noon:  Seattle Skylines -- Exploring Patterns & Collage

We'll spend our days finding and creating patterns, learning about collage with all different materials, and even exploring painting styles from around the world.  But, our main goal will be creating an incredible 24x36 inch work of art on canvas, inspired by our Seattle skyline.  Make a space for this masterpiece on the living room wall, or give it as a very special gift to a loved one.  FULL*

1:00pm - 3:30pm:  Woodworking Lite

Bring a hammer and we'll provide the rest to make several easy and useful projects with wood.  From gumball machines to string art and even our own personal white-boards, we'll get smart, creative, coordinated, and messy.  So many possibilities!  FULL*
