Adult Fine Art Workshop: Prayer Birds with Major Ronda Gilger
Thursday, July 11, @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm$27.50
In this class you will create your choice of a “Dream bird,” “Prayer Bird” or “Wish Bird.” We begin by painting your wooden bird which was handmade by a small carpenter shop in Moldova. Mixed media techniques will add design to your bird’s body- and you will write your prayer, wish or dream onto the back. Beads, buttons, ribbons, charms and feathers will be added – each one hanging down from the bird’s body; forming decorative art that will move with the breeze as you hang your finished art piece on a tree branch or patio. The wind will blow, the sun will fade the ribbons, the rain will fall – and in time your prayers, wishes and dreams will come to pass. Charming gift for yourself or someone you love. This class is for ages 15+.
