Sculpting (Kathy), Monday 4-6pm
Let’s get to the bottom of Sculpture. Let’s see how we can pull shapes out of our working material and express how we're really feeling inside.
We can do it. It will be a journey we can take together. We will start off in clay and develop our ideas into a medium we can be comfortable
with. I will show you the masters as well as find the master in you. This is easy. It’s already a part of you that we need to let out and show the
world. The life in the clay or the wood is just waiting there for you to come and discover it! Novice level, all ages.
