Whatever your level, instructor Maggie McClellan will guide you on the way.
The cost is $275, $300 for non-members. It is for all levels and all media, be it watercolor or gouache, oil or acrylic.

Legend has it that this traditional, intricate mosaic of shells, stones, shark’s teeth and other beach treasures originated in the Barbados Islands. They were made as gifts for those loved ones returning from sea and have become a popular art form.

No previous art experience is needed to take this class.
