Getting creative around York County

I love art. I get that from my mom, who is good at almost any art that comes her way. I, on the other hand, am normally not good at it, but I do it anyway!

So when our pastor’s wife – a local artisan – offered a mosaic class to our church’s members, Mom and I both jumped at the chance. Over two sessions, with a little homework, we each created a masterpiece for our house.

Here’s Mom’s, an abstract piece that works with the colors of our house:

Here’s mine. It’s sort of “impressionist” – it’s supposed to “be” something, but it might not be obvious. Can you tell what?

If you’re interested in creating your own masterpiece, The York Town Craft Guild offers classes just like the ones we took, also by Lynn Gilbert. They offer tons of other classes, too, so if breaking glass isn’t your thing, maybe you can find another new hobby! I know I will definitely be making more of these in the future.

About Joan

My name is Joan and I'm a lifelong Yorker. Throughout high school and college, I swore I was getting out of here as soon as possible. Now, a few years later, I can't think of anywhere I'd rather be. I love my town, and I hear every day from readers who love their towns, too. So please, connect with me and let's share what makes life in York County great. I'm here to help you enjoy this place as much as I do!

    So cool! People pay big bucks for art like this.
