Curry Arts is sponsoring another free workshop on Saturday, August 2nd, 9 am to 2 pm, at the Curry County Extension Service Center at the Fairgrounds in Gold Beach. Brookings artist Tom Moody will show you how to make fabulous creations from stencils, old jewelry and pieces of stuff you might find in your junk drawer. Make a picture frame or cover a memory book or simply start your next painting with some interesting textures.
