This 9 hour workshop will be taught in 3 hour increments on 3 consecutive evenings to allow for drying time.

We will be using only elements from the Earth (gypsum, clay, rust, metal, wood and tea bags to name a few) to create our own "mindful" wall art. In my classroom I encourage my artists to create with an open mind and break any rules they see fit. Make it your own.

We will learn to make 3-D items out of plaster wrap. Including but not limited to a moon, a leaf, a boat, a platter, a medallion, letting our imagination take us.

We all need to become more mindful when it comes to the environment that naturally surrounds us. I have devoted over twenty-seven years (and counting) to conservation and it is with this mindset that I created this class. Bring your own mindful ideas but leave your carbon footprint at home.
