Notice: sales have been suspended, as the 2020 Gourd Art Festival has been postponed until 2021 due to COVID orders.

This class is all about using your imagination to design one of a kind gourd pieces, something that’s unique to you. Students will be supplied with different designs to excite their imagination and are encouraged to bring their own designs if they have some. “My goal here is for you to make a piece that speaks of and to you”. We’ll be using transparent acrylics, standard acrylics, Gold and Silver Alcohol paint, foiling, and other embellishments. Sky’s the limit with this class. You will learn more about color, contrasts and use of unique methods to apply and manipulate paint. Most of all we will have fun!
