IRIS FOLD NOTECARDS CLASS
LEARN HOW TO MAKE IRIS FOLD NOTECARDSInstructor Linda Weaver
Iris folding is a paper craft technique that involves folding strips of colored papers in such a way to form a design. The center of the design forms an iris, a shape reminiscent of the iris diaphragm of a camera lens.
Each card is uniquely made with its own special colored paper combinations. Please note that the swirl of each separate color leads to the center iris. Each card is one-of-a-kind - no two are alike.

WATERCOLOR CLASSInstructor Becky Peebles
Watercolors by Helen Smathers
The weekly watercolor classes with Becky Peebles are structured for beginners through advanced students. Each class is $35 per session.
Starting with loose washes and progressing to details, you will learn Becky's technique which could be described as realism with a dash of Impressionism (or soul!). Beginners through Advanced are welcome to attend.
Every other session begins with Becky demonstrating a particular technique, leading the class step by step. After this warm-up, the class will move on to individual work. Each demo is independent of the one before and after... you are never behind, even if you miss a class. The sessions in which there is no demo are to allow students to develop individual style with hands-on guidance.
There is no advance registration... these are ongoing classes. Limited seating is available. Please call Becky at 706-969-2052 to reserve your space.Dates: every ThursdayTime: 1:00 till 4:00pmPlace: Center Art StudioCost: $35 per sessionSkill level: Beginners through Advanced are welcome to attendRegistrationDeadline: On-going
