The Vivid Vase
If you have a shelf full of clear glass vases that you have collected over the years, we have the perfect solution to giving them pizazz and new life! Work with an artist to add color and design using alcohol paints. You will be amazed at the outcome. Bring your own vase or we will provide one.

Bask in the gentle glow of a luminary created with an artist. You will be amazed at how a few well-chosen decorative elements and a large dose of imagination make this simple project a work of art perfect for any occasion!
