Sculpture and Classes

Classes

I’ve been teaching mostly at the COA in West Concord.  We had several great classes in 2018, a hummingbird, chickadee, dragonflies, a cardinal and a reindeer.  The next class scheduled for the COA is April 11th, 12:30-3:00PM.  We are sculpting a bunny, please contact Tina Close at 978 318 3020 if you are interested in taking the class .  Here is a photo.

Sculpture

Paper Clay is another medium that I work with, I’ve been creating theme Christmas trees for the Concord Museum for many years.  Each tree is designed to illustrate a famous children’s book.  I sculpt the characters and try to “tell” the story on the holiday tree.  See concordmuseum.org for the details of this exhibit.

If you are interested in a private class, contact Betsi – mandrioli@aol.com
