Dragonflies are beneficial to gardens and to us.  They are predators that hunt and eat mosquitoes.  They zip and dip and hover to find and catch their prey.  Some of them are quietly colored while others are vibrant and electric in their coloring.  Let your imagination take flight on your own dragonfly glass tile and paint it however you like.  No experience necessary and all materials are provided.  You will take home a completed piece, each tile is approximately 12” x 7”.

Class capacity is 16 – register early!

I have always loved art, so while growing up I took all the art classes that were offered in school. I was drawn to art beyond being content to just appreciate it, but during my working career making time for art seemed a luxury to be put on hold for the future. Somehow I found jewelry making and fell in love with it. It enabled me to work with color, design, and texture, it was a great stress-reliever, an outlet for my creativity, and it nurtured my soul. When I became a member of an artists’ co-op in Colorado Springs, I was constantly admiring the work created by the glass artists there, and one day one of them offered to teach me how to fuse glass. I was hooked. Creating fused glass art has taught me to appreciate all art even more than I did before. It is always a learning experience. But when everything goes right, the end result brings me joy and nurtures my soul, as I always hope it will for those who see my art. Learning, enjoying and creating art is an ongoing journey. Each new piece guides its own design and helps me grow as an artist. I love it!
