Pueblo Artist Series: Southwest Gourd Painting
Artist, teacher Dominic Arquero (Cochiti), has worked extensively with gourds for the past 15 years. He has exhibited and sold work throughout the country in public and private collections. All students will learn how to open and cut, clean inside and out, design, paint and seal Southwest style gourds. We will be working hands-on with sharp tools and electronic power tools. Students should wear work clothes. You are going to get your hands dirty. Also, bring artist paint brushes and antique designs that you would like to attempt. Larger gourds will be available on site for sale if someone is interested in working on a larger scale. Workshop fee includes small and medium gourds, paint, most brushes and all cutting equipment.
