This returning ALTERED ART journaling group resumes January 29, 2017 to April 9, 2017 for six alternating Sundays. Open to new students, limit 12. One time mentoring class fee of $60. The overall theme will be creating pages for each letter of the alphabet – A to Z, and the challenge will be to use the “artist trading card” size (2.5 x 3.5 inches) for image designs. This is a great winter activity to spend afternoons with creative friends.
Cherri Robb mentors this lively group where students create their own unique designs, and use their own color choices and paper along with personal embellishments. Techniques will be taught each week and Cherri provides individualized design assistance for each student. Fun and sharing will be enjoyed by all, along with lots of show-and-tell!  Please stop by the store to read detailed instructions and requirements.

CLASS POLICIES
***Classes start promptly at the time listed.  Please have your lovely buns in the seat and be ready to go!    Showing up late is very disruptive to the class that is already in progress.  Plan ahead for traffic or other things that might slow you down! 
If you are more than 10 minutes late, you may be asked to get into another class.  If you are more than 15 minutes late, you will forfeit your class fee. 
Classes must be paid for at the time of registration.  You are not considered registered unless a class is paid for which could affect your seat in those classes with student limits.  You may pay with cash, check or use a credit card with a $2 handling fee.  You may register over the phone and mail in a check or give us a credit card number. 
We also assume you're taking a class to enjoy a break for a few hours and learn some cool stuff without interruptions.  That said, we will now begin each class by asking you to turn off your cell phones or silence them during class.  This will enhance everyone's learnin' and enjoyment of the class at hand.
Thank you in advance for understanding.  If you have problems or questions about these policy updates, please see Patsy.
