Normally Al's students pay $575 for a 5 day class. Al is offering these classes to members of the Genesee Valley Woodcarvers at a special price of $350 which includes a cutout, eyes, and patterns. Al power carves his pieces from tupelo, wood burns for detail, airbrushes base colors, shadows, and some accents, and then uses a brush for the final details. If preferred, the student may hand-paint the entire piece.
This is a fabulous opportunity get to know Al and work with him in an inspiring and supportive group setting.
Contact Al directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or (585) 227-2235 for more information and also to register any of these classes. Hope to see lots of members availing themselves of this wonderful opportunity. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
