When life gives you empty cognac bottles…

henessyvsopWhat do you do when someone gives you 85 empty cognac bottles and a big bottle of white glue? If you are an art teacher, you don’t ask questions; you say “Thank You!” Then you get busy washing, scraping, scheming. The assignment: Pomegranate Vases for Armenian Remembrance Day. In case you didn’t know (and I did not), the pomegranate is the symbol of Armenia.

With white glue, tissue paper and markers, everyone below the legal drinking age will transform liquor bottles into beautiful vases. Also, minors will be encouraged to make greeting cards inspired by traditional Armenian pottery designs.

WHAT: Barnsdall Arts Sundays
WHERE: JAC Studio 1, Barnsdall Art Park, 4800 Hollywood Blvd, LA CA 90027
