When Life Throws You a Lemon....

We all know the quote.. "if life throws you a lemon, make lemonade".  Well how about a Lemon painting?  This Encaustic class will show you how to use decorative papers in your art, stencils to help make your shapes, and of course.. we will drink some lemonade!!  Your finished piece will be a 12"x12" colorful bowl of lemons to hang in your house.  Cost of class is $50 (includes a 12" cradled board, paints, and brushes).  Students are responsible for bringing decorative papers to use for their backgrounds such as lightweight scrapbook paper (12x12), wrapping paper, and/or printed tissue paper.  The workshop will be offered on Thursday, February 9th from 10-12:30pm and again on Tuesday, February 14th from 10-12:30pm.
Only 8 per class so please contact Corner Arts Gallery to reserve your spot or call 678-633-5705.  In the meantime.. enjoy this recipe for the perfect Lemonade found here!

Perfect Lemonade Recipe


  • 1 cup sugar (can reduce to 3/4 cup)
  • 1 cup water (for the simple syrup)
  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 3 to 4 cups cold water (to dilute)


1 Make simple syrup by heating the sugar and water in a small saucepan until the sugar is dissolved completely.
2 While the sugar is dissolving, use a juicer to extract the juice from 4 to 6 lemons, enough for one cup of juice.
3 Add the juice and the sugar water to a pitcher. Add 3 to 4 cups of cold water, more or less to the desired strength. Refrigerate 30 to 40 minutes. If the lemonade is a little sweet for your taste, add a little more straight lemon juice to it.
Serve with ice, sliced lemons.
Yield: Serves 6.
