Celtic and Other Cultural Intuitive Art Figures

Through a simple figure/ doll making process, the characters we create might express culture, ancestry, myth, creativity, nature, loss, wisdom, passion, energy, bravery, compassion, happiness, sadness, or joy. Let your creative journey unfold intuitively as you build and costume your character. Join artist/art therapist Laura Bohn for this meaningful Arts & Wellness class. $45 / $30 for members
