Do you have some junk-tiques lying around? Repurpose them by taking a class on glazing, gold leafing and resurfacing with fabric and paper. You will learn to prep surfaces and how to repair and refinish them. Classes are on Wednesdays, September 5-26 from 10 A.M. to Noon. The four-week course is only $72, plus a $10 supply fee. Academically trained artist Mary Grace Birkhead will be instructing and you may contact her for a supply list at marygraceb@comcast.net.

Call (615) 790-5719, ext. 10 to register.

Art Factory is for ages 12-18 and offers the opportunity to learn the visual arts and basics of drawing, painting and sculpting. This is a great class for home school groups. Birkhead is also the instructor for this class which will include discussion, exploration of existing art work and studio time to work on subject based art. This one is also on Wednesday from 1 P.M. to 2:30 P.M. and is $40, with a $10 supply fee.

Call (615) 790-5719, ext. 10 to register.
