Be Yourself

"To be nobody but

yourself in a world 

which is doing its best day and night to make you like

everybody else means to fight the hardest battle 

which any human being can fight and never stop fighting."

Be Yourself and Re-create your world by using your hands!

Here are some recent mosaic class attendee masterpieces!

Here is a recent Watercolor Class with Sue McCarty

Kathy's Working hard!

Participants learned new ways to make backgrounds!

Linda told her daughter about the class, "I am taking the class with Molly and she is just as dumb as me!" (When it comes to watercolor, anyway;) Linda and her daughter and husband had met me the first night of ArtPrize 2010 at the Grand Rapids Civic Theatre; what a shock to meet her at one of my classes!

Linda wasn't as "dumb" as she thought. Here is her second watercolor!

Here is my newest mosaic project (a framed mirror that my husband built for me) which will actually be on hold for a while, I have a commission mosaic backsplash that I am working on for a client in New York. I will add pictures when I have them of that project!

I also just signed up for a cool project for artist's: The Sketchbook Project.

Lots of classes (Kids and Big Kids!) coming up at the shop. Check them out @http://www.aworkofartstudio.com/http___web.me.com_aworkofartstudio/Studio_Schedule.html
