For ages 16 to adult on Saturday, April 19, 2014, from 9 am - 2:30 pm at the Carrollton Cultural Arts Center in Classroom# 2. This workshop will result in the creation of a beautiful mosaic bench that can be placed outdoors. Participants will design and glue beautiful mosaic pieces (including handmade clay pieces created by the artist, glass beads, stones, colorful commercial tiles and found objects) to the surface of a small concrete bench and then grout the spaces between the mosaic pieces. The final mosaic bench will be durable, functional and a unique work of art. Participants are encouraged to bring items to be included in their mosaic: tiles to break up, glass gems, small glass tiles, stone tiles and commercial tiles (available at Hobby Lobby, Home Depot, Michaels, & Walmart), old jewelry and medium sized beads. Items need to be nonporous. Min. 5, Max. 15. Please register early (by Friday April 12) so that we can order the concrete benches and have them delivered. Fee:$175 includes bench form and materials. For more information, contact Helen Helwig at 678-796-9722 or helenhelwig@bellsouth.net Or call the Art Center at 770-838-1083. Register at the art center or online at www.cprcad.org
