Peeking into Class: Decoupage

Judy Diamond, below, works on her Obama tray in Jenn Sherr’s Decoupage class.  Judy tells us about her experience in the class:
I retired last year from being a social worker and started taking the Decoupage class last spring.  I had little experience with any kind of creative art, and I wanted to try this medium.  Jenn Sherr has been an extraordinary teacher; her skill, enthusiasm, support and encouragement has been invaluable. Many of us have taken this class several times, and the ambiance of the class includes learning and sharing with each other.  Jenn has taught us how to apply decoupage techniques to furniture, boots, shoes, trays, and boxes .  I am happy with the variety and multiple projects that I have completed, including all of the above.
My first project was a tray with a travel theme from a recent trip.  The goal for me in doing the Obama tray. as well as its timeliness, was to learn the sponge painting technique . Jenn had valuable suggestions on placement of items and provided some items as well, as she has done before.  After completing this tray, I feel I will have learned another technique which will be helpful in future projects.
Decoupage classes are full for this term, but Spring Term begins soon!
