Creating a Bird Mobile with the Wendell Gilley Museum's Artist-in-Residence
Online via Zoom
Create a charming bird mobile with the Wendell Gilley Museum’s longtime artist-in-residence, Steve Valleau. Starting from a comprehensive kit that includes wooden blanks, participants will use paint and wood-burning to make five birds, then connect them to finish a whimsical hanging art piece in this six-week Zoom class. Some work between classes will be necessary. Ambitious students can expand the project with more or different birds.
Kits will be supplied, and wood burners and painting materials may be borrowed from the Wendell Gilley Museum.
