Are you in for another frighteningly good time?  Join our very own "Queen of Halloween" (aka Pollie Coleman) as she brings you The Coffin Express, just in time for the Halloween season!  Jump aboard as you take your mixed media skills to the bone-y side, enhance your techniques using alcohol inks to create depth and dimension as well as imitate a wood appearance, reshape plastic skeleton figures into the poses you want, and create a frighteningly fun unique piece perfect for Halloween!  Everything you’ll need to construct your project will be available in the Workshop, but if you have anything special you’d like to add, please feel free to bring it with you.  SEATING IS LIMITED so make your reservations early to be sure to save your seat for this chilling adventure!
