You're not going to believe your eyes when you see the incredible classes being served up at Art and Soul. Please check out my classes, then continue the Hop by visiting all the fantastically talented artists' blogs listed below.  

I'm teaching three classes: an All-You-Can-Make ArtCharm Buffet based on my book Making Mixed Media Art Charms and Jewelry, an evening of Basic Fused Glass, and the all-day-long Layered Light: the Art of Glass Fusing. You can read the class descriptions by clicking on the numbers next to the class titles. And you can register at the bottom of the class description page. 

* ArtCharm Buffet (P1139) on Tuesday, Sept. 27th from 9 A.M. to 4:30 P.M.
Here are examples of the kind of pieces you can create in this class:

* Basic Fused Glass (P1137) on Tuesday evening, Sept. 27th from 6:30 to 9:30 P.M.
* Layered Light: the Art of Glass Fusing (P284) on Thursday, Sept. 29th, A.M. to 4:30 P.M.
