Design your dream room at the Marion Art Center

Feb 21, 2019

The Marion Art Center is offering a new three-day workshop, Dare to Decorate! with instructor Diane Kelley.  The workshop will be held on three Wednesdays beginning March 13 at 10 a.m. at the MAC. The March 13 and 27 classes will run from 10 a.m. to noon at the MAC. The March 20 class includes a field trip to Boston Design Center, and will run 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Students in the workshop will be guided step-by-step on a creative journey to discover their own personal decorating style. In this hands-on workshop they will select colors, fabrics, furnishings and create an optional floor plan.  Participants will also explore lighting, architectural elements, antiques and artistic accessories, as well as floor, wall, paint and window treatments. 

For inspiration, students will tour the Boston Design Center, Boston’s largest, most comprehensive decorating resource. Workshops are lecture-based with Powerpoint presentations, handouts and open discussions, followed by studio work sessions.  At the end of your term, you may leave with a complete floor plan for one room in your own real, or imagined, dream home or office.

The cost for the workshop will be $110 for MAC members and $120 for non-members, plus the cost of lunch at the Boston Design Center. For more information, call the MAC at 508-748-1266 with questions. Register for classes and workshops by phone, in person, or online at
