Part Two:  Sunday, June 5th,  1-5pm

Bless the Heart and Soul of Phoebe Snow  

Students will learn new methods of self expression and inventive mixed media techniques.  Using Creative Paper Clay participants will learn how to sculpt relief forms onto boards the first day.  The second day will be devoted to carving and sanding the air-dried pieces, and then finishing them using collage materials and acrylic paint.  The result is  a rich textural wood-carved effect that leaves people wondering how you made it.
