It's time for the 2014 Kachemak Bay Shorebird Festival in Homer, Alaska!
I am the featured artist this year and will be at several special events:
Artist Workshop with Amanda Brannon
Saturday, May 10th, 2014 9am - 11am
Alaska Islands & Ocean Visitor Center, Seminar Room
Join this year's featured artist Amanda Brannon for her workshop and demo. Clay board art (also called scratch board) involves the removal of a thin layer of India ink to reveal the clay layer below, through scratching or scraping the surface with a variety of sharp tools. This workshop is designed to introduce children over 10 and adults to the basic techniques of clay board art. Amanda Brannon is a nationally published, award-winning artist and designer. www.AmandaBrannon.com
