December Artist-in-Residence Donna Eigen

Donna Eigen retired from Rockwell Automation as a global marketing manager in 2010 and served in the Peace Corps in Puebla, Mexico from 2011-2013. She has also enjoyed creating art but it became a driving force in her life after her time in Mexico where the vibrant Latin American culture brought a new way of looking at color, form and style. She now works in decoupage on glass, creating functional art as well as colorful “storyboxes”, assembling decoupaged glass panels in a shadow box to create a multi-layered collage that tells a story. Donna is a Wisconsin native and proud mother of two sons. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology and a Master of Arts degree in Communication from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Decoupage on Glass II with Donna Eigen 

Saturday, January 7:  9 am-1 pm 

This workshop takes decoupage to the next level by incorporating advanced techniques into the age-old art form of decoupage. Students will learn how to work with more challenging materials such as napkins, tissue paper and alcohol inks as they create separate inside and outside designs on a glass bowl, allowing the inside design to be visible through the glass. Take home a beautiful, yet functional work of art to give as a holiday gift or use to hold jewelry, candy canes or spare change. All supplies are provided; there is a separate $15 material fee payable to the instructor on the first day of class. The instructor will also provide source materials but students are welcome to bring their own photos, magazines, decorative paper, image sources and ephemera to personalize their bowl. For ages 13 and up.

$56 CCC Members / $67 Non-Members
