December Meeting of The Maker's Space-Mosaic

Our teacher Susan, described a mosaic bowl that was ordered and not so interesting.  She then broke the beautiful stones lose, to be used somewhere in a free, beautiful pattern.  Our only instructions were not to think, but to make a road of broken pieces.  This was the result: YouTube Our projects will be added to/and or grouted in our February Meeting where we will continue the art of Mosaic.  If you were unable to come, but would still like to try this, you are welcome to bring in your broken plates and make a beautiful piece of art.

We are excited to announce an event happening this Christmas Season in Wheaton.    A committee of local residents along with the Jonahre foundation will be hosting a Christmas Art Walk with  12 stores hosting 12 pieces of commissioned fine art telling the Biblical story of Christmas.  The 12 pieces of art are selected from submissions and commissioned for the town of Wheaton from 12 different artists completing work in different mediums and genres of art.      These will be displayed in 12 different businesses in Wheaton during regular business hours.    A map of the art walk will be provided to encourage the community to view each of the individual pieces which tells the complete Christmas Story.    This will run for the 12 days before Christmas. Don't miss the LIVE NATIVITY being held on Saturday, December 17 in the garden center of Carlson's Art Store on Front St. in Wheaton.  There will be a 20 minute play every 30 minutes from 11-2pm along with live animals.
