Girls And Chocolate

Justice Alcorn - pictured below - enjoyed our Painting with Chocolate session this morning. Justice created a reverse painting and several desert toppers. And we sampled a little chocolate along the way.

Mosaics at Madhaus

The past few weeks I've had several students and groups come in to work on mosaics. Mosaics can be created with a variety of materials including glass, tile, shells, beads, etc..  In our studio, I use primarily scrap stained glass, old boards, mirrors, glue, and grout to create wall hangings and stepping stones. In the picture, a student creates a mirror during a recent class.

Summer Fun

Over the summer I've had several of my regular students continue with weekly art lessons.  As FYI, we're also offering some group summer classes for young adults coming up on Mondays 10a-12p...for a list, you can check FaceBook or our web site at www.madhausgallery.com. The student below - JoAnn - is working with Fused Glass to create a possible candidate for her 4H county fair entry.   It is amazing how only a few weeks of training have improved her confidence with glass cutting.
