     Artist/Photographer Deborah Smith's Images Fine Arts Gallery and Gift Shop, which opened two years ago in Grantville, has relocated to Moreland and has recently begun hosting art classes and workshops.  Information on the latest one has just been released:  a Canvas Floorcloth Workshop to be taught by Kristina and Trisha Adams from Newnan, both of whom are active in the Newnan-Coweta Art Association (NCAA) and who are active producing art works.  (Kris is especially known and appreciated for your watercolors.)  Trisha is the daughter-in-law of Kris.  Trisha has not only produced some great paintings but has also devoted a great deal of effort to NCAA, creating for it a website, a newsletter, and a gallery of monthly exhibits at the downtown Newnan coffee shop formerly called Gallery Row, now called Espresso Lane.  Information on the workshop Kris and Trisha will be conducting is provided below.

Instructors, Kristina Adams & Trisha Adams have been creating Custom Canvas Floorcloths locally for the past 4 years.   They're a mother & daughter-in-law duo that actually get along…most of the time, and feed off each other's creativity.   In addition Kris and Trisha paint Wall Murals and both are Watercolorists.
This 5 hour workshop will cover the basics of creating your own canvas floorcloth.   This is not a "paint-a-long"; each student will create their own original design.  Instructors are happy to help out with drawing, layout, and painting if necessary - but promise not to paint on your floorcloth unless you ask them!
Be prepared to paint hard, laugh a lot and go home with a beautiful piece of Floor Art!  Bring a drink and your lunch, we'll only break for a half an hour to eat!
