Oscar Silva Offers Shadow Box Workshops

Member Oscar Silva has offered to teach four 2-day summer workshops at the Gallery.  Each class will include paper-making, knotting, and wrapping, and each student will take home a completed shadow box in which to show their work.
The workshop costs $75, and Oscar will furnish all the materials and tools.  Classes will be from 10 AM to 3 PM with an hour for lunch, and space is limited.
Two spots remain open in the class to be held Monday-Tuesday, June 4-5. 
Once this class is filled, spaces will open in the next class to be held Monday-Tuesday, June 11-12.  If both June classes fill up, Oscar will teach another workshop Monday-Tuesday, July 9-10.  (Oscar will teach a previously scheduled workshop July 16-17 that is already full.)
To register, call the Gallery at 830-379-7625.  If you have questions, you can call Ann Leithead at 830-372-1542.
