Happy Hours Depot arts and crafts classes are slipping in a bonus class on Saturday, Feb. 17, when Shanna Dees Gaspard teaches special class on making individual decorative table coasters from personal photos.
The crafts class is from 1 to 4 p.m at the Art Guild at the Many Depot. Cost is $20 which goes to pay for the materials and supplies needed tomake the coasters.
Gaspard has been teaching the craft classes for the past year and said that this class is especially fun because the coasters are individually personalized.
The president of the Depot Art Guild, Gaspard is always on the lookout for arts and craft classes that are both fun and provide the students with highly individualized instruction.
A highly talented artist and craftswoman, Gaspard stays busy with her art projects and volunteer work at the depot and in the Many Cultural District.
It’s important to reserve a space in the craft class in advance since Gaspard purchases all the supplies needed to make the coasters. Potential students should call 318-602-1614 and speak to Gaspard to reserve a class spot for Saturday, Feb. 17.
“These really are Happy Hours classes,” Gaspard said. “We enjoy visiting with old friends and making new friends. And…the students get to be creative and then take something special home with them when class is over.”
The Happy Hours classes are sponsored by the Depot Art Guild, Many Mayor Ken Freeman and the Many Cultural District Advisory Committee.
