There is something about being in the outdoors that gets the creative juices flowing.
Not just in children, but in adults also!
Kathleen will guide even the most novice of painters and crafters through an array of one of a kind masterpieces.
Whether it is a painting project or crafting endeavor, you may be surprised at your hidden talents.
Join us for another great wood carving demonstration given by master carver Kevin Treat.
Kevin's sculptures are positioned with owners in several US states as well as on public display in the Pennsylvania Lumber Museum and the Pennsylvania Anthracite Heritage Museum. In addition, he has been commissioned to carving projects by local parks, schools, hospitals, and the US Air-Force. Kevin participates in several local and regional chainsaw carving competitions and the annual Ridgway International Chainsaw Carvers Rendezvous. His chainsaw carving also provides an entertainment venue at local fairs and events as attendees watch logs transform into unique one-of-a-kind sculptures. When not tracking through sawdust, Kevin may be conveying quite a different image as an optician and college instructor.
