Don’t get rid of those pesky palm fronds and other tree debris. Heidi Saletko, an instructor at the Marco Island Center for the Arts, has a viable alternative. She turns those palm fronds into totally unique art forms: three-dimensional animal masks that can be hung inside or out.
Now Saletko will share her palm frond techniques at a monthly workshop from 1-4pm on May 15, June 19, July 17, August 21 and September 18. The cost of each workshop is $55 and includes acrylic paints, brushes, palm fronds etc. Just pick the animal that you would like to paint, whether a lion, zebra, turtle, cockatoo, panther or any other selection, and get ready for a lot of fun. If you lack inspiration, visit the Center’s gift shop and see some of Saletko’s work. It is the perfect gift for a grandchild or the young at heart.
