Will she be your “muse”? Inspired by the ancient rock art of southwestern USA, you have the opportunity to express your inner hopes, dreams or prayers through the creation of this gourd art design. Each completed piece includes a scroll with your personalized message. Feel free to bring an orphaned earring, special button or piece of beach glass to incorporate into your design. You will sculpt his/her face with epoxy clay, carve and insert your special piece and add details as you desire. Mounted on a 5 x 7 inch backing, and installed in the decorative shadowbox frame, the spirit figure becomes a memento for you or a gift for a friend.

Materials Fee $25 paid at beginning of class includes:
 gourd shard, 5” x 7” shadow box frame with glass, paints, scroll, ephemera including feathers, clay face, etc. and access to wood burning and carving tools
