 I have completed a carving studio and would like to offer classes to young people between the ages of 12 and 18 to instruct them in the art of carving wood into realistic birds.

I would be working with a class of 4 students over a one to two week period to create by use of hand and power tools a replica of a local song bird painted in acrylic.

Each prioject would require the two weeks of classes befoe a new cycle would start

The studio is complete and work places arranged but the funding is necessary to purchase the extra equipment so that each student will have access to the proper tools without the need to share while working.

How will the $5K be used?

Budget Notes: The studio, heating, cooling, lighting ,furniture, knifes as needed, will be supplied by me.
$ 2,895 purchase of four foredom power carvers
$ 600 purchase of dried bass wood
$ 400 paint and brushes
$ 175 safety equipment i.e. dust masks, eye protection,slash resistent glove
