Magnolia Art Studio coin a phrase of John Lennon, "strange days indeed.."

My drop in classes are suspended till further notice, however I will consider conducting small group activities here at Magnolia Art Studio.  Please email me for more information,

By request!   Stay tuned for the next Collage Substrate workshop - TBA


A number of 'stations' will  be set up so that you can try out various mediums, and make your own collage substrates.

  • alcohol ink

  • soy wax (this makes tissue paper and Japanese papers translucent)

  • mark making with water based inks and acrylics

  • and weather permitting, burning paper

I will have a variety of paper on hand suitable for the mediums.


The cost is $25 per person. Materials will be provided, but you are welcome to bring along your own as well.
