BEYOND THE GLASS | PART TWO

BEYOND THE GLASS | PART TWO

We are back with another session....join us!

Beyond the Glass is a God-breathed idea? I spent many years being a wife & mom. I gave so much to my family that I sacrificed my own desires and aspirations. With my daughter off to college I spent much of my time asking God to give me something of substance, something I could grow and that would bless others.

One day I woke up and it came to me...paint bottles!, and although it may have sound a little strange, It was different and I did exactly that!! Yes, there were challenges and lessons learned along the way but when Gods got a plan and you are willing, all things are possible. The mission of Beyond the Glass is to give people a moment of Freedom to express art from deep within and create lasting memories.

in this session, attendees will have a hands on experience on how to paint a beautiful piece of art. All attendees will have a beyond the glass experience and take home their masterpiece to display for friends and family.

This event is FREE, and open to the public. RSVP STRONGLY ENCOURAGED.
