Images Gallery Announces Stained Glass Workshop Schedule
Plus Future Renovations and Expansions
Deborah Smith, the Owner/Operator of the Images Fine Art Gallery in Moreland, recently stated that various renovations and expansions are underway that will in the near future lead to improvements and increases in the operations there. The specifics will be announced soon. At present, there is a curtailed activity which is limited to stained glass workshops taught by Newnan artist Kay Moore of Sookie's Glass Art Studio. Speaking of stained glass, Smith has recently become a real fan of stained glass and is herself (along with several other members of her family) one of Moore's students. And, Moore in answer to a recent question on the subject, ridiculed the myth that the art of making stained glass windows was lost after the end of the Middle Ages. It is still very much alive and well, she says, especially here in Coweta County!
The information below about the Stained Glass Classes at Images is found on their website http://www.imagesgallery.biz/classes.html. (Moore's website is found at
http://sookiesglassartstudio.blogspot.com.) There have also been changes in Deborah Smith's phone number. She has discontinued both of her home telephones and now only uses her cell phone, which is 678-850-1868. Her email address has also changed: the new one is firstname.lastname@example.org.

Visit Sookies Blog Spot to see what is happening in studio.
Kay offers a "Free Form" Class structure. Translated, this basically means that in the studio, students are working on different projects at different skill levels at different stages of completion...all at the same time. This type of atmosphere lets the instructor give individualized attention and allows less competition for equipment.
Glass and supplies are available for purchase, and tools are available for student use. If you want to bring in supplies and glass from an outside source that is also okay. Send in a deposit reserve your spot in class and when you attend your class you'll purchase a block of flexible classes. Currently, classes are offered at the days/times listed above.
Mosaic | Instructor, Kay Moore
Mosaic Classes run at the same time as Stained Glass classes. Students will bring in their project to work on i.e. table, cement bench, stepping stone, etc.
Supplies are available for purchase and tools are available for use. Class fee is $20 per class.
