Art Class Sampler
Batik - Jewelry - Pottery
Fee:  $129
Try-ART-Fecta lets you TRY a trio of art projects that you will create in one day!  
This art experience is designed with the beginner adult in mind but will be fun for those 
with experience as well.  You will go from studio, to studio to studio learning techniques in 
Batik, Jewelry and Clay.   

One day, three informative and fun classes for you.
Each class is 1 3/4 hours long with ample time to get to the next class by foot or by car.
Located in lovely La Veta, Colorado, nestled at the base of the Spanish Peaks, 
the three different art studios are within a 10-minute walk of each other.
Small class sizes, maximum of 6 people.  Sign up with friends or go solo!

Classes are taught by local artists in La Veta, Colorado. 
Batik with Beth and Jonathan Evans          
Jewelry with Val Smith                        
Clay with Nicole Copel                          

One inclusive cost! $129.  
All materials and art processes are included in this fee.
An additional material fee of $15 will be collected on-site, if you choose to work 
with fine silver instead of copper for your jewelry project.
Lunch is not included but we will provide a list of available lunch options within town.
Batik and Pottery projects will take additional days to process and will be ready for pick up 
one week from the class date.  We can ship your projects for an additional  fee of $15.
