October Demonstrations in Velingrad Bulgaria
Students from surrounding schools in Velingrad continue to visit the Museum far a first hand experience at carving an eggshell. Each is given a simple design on a chicken egg and some simple instructions to follow. When they are finished they get to take the egg home. I find it fun to watch the initial shyness disappear as the braver students find success with their egg. by the end of the hour many are asking to make more pieces. I hope this excitement for creative expression will continue throughout their lives.
When in Velingrad in 2011 for my exhibitions Maria Sharkova was the very first Bulgarian student to offer to translate for her classmates. Here she is 3 years later making a new creation.
