Water Media and Collage Classes with Artist/Teacher Therese Gena

Water media and collage is an exciting way to create artwork. Collage, in its many forms, is versatile and user friendly. In this class, beginning students will have the opportunity to enjoy a process that is totally one of a kind. This is a process where there are no mistakes, only happy accidents that help you to create unique art.

According to Therese Gena, "My personal method of teaching will provide ample demonstrations, individualized instruction and lots of hands on experience."
Classes will be held each Tuesday in March (March 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29) at the Canastota Public Library from 5:30pm until 8pm. Due to the nature of this media, it will be necessary for students to attend each and every class. Class size is limited so enroll today by calling the library at 697-7030. A materials fee of $15 and the registration for this class must be made by February 22.
