All the painter has to do is take a diamond and stick it on the canvas. Materials will be provided for free for the introductory two months. You can start small with a coaster or a bookmark and move on to larger pictures as you become more comfortable with working with the materials. (Bring your glasses!) Please call and pre-register if you plan to attend one or more of the sessions.
