We had a great class with Dave Stetson . He was very informative . I learned a whole bunch . If you want to caricature carve I recommend his class. He puts things in kindergarten language . Which help me a lot. Here are some photo’s

The Pete LeClair class was great! We carved a Hobo and Pete’s instructions where right on spot. Went from a ruff-out to painting in four days. One day was all on construction of caricature faces which was very informative! Paul and Rusty were very gracious hosts. We would all like to thank them for the food and the clean up each day. Believe me, some days there were so many wood chips on the floor of their living room, it looked like farm animals should live there. We would like to thank Pete for sharing his talent with us. We made another life long friend! Here is a slide show of the event (click the link below).                                                            http://youtu.be/xoAIX-yfCiM
