In Progress... Arts and Science 50 Challenge

In celebration of the SCA's 50th Anniversary, an Arts and Science challenge has been issue. For the challenge, participants are asked to create 50 items... for my Challenge Project I am recreating 50 henna designs from 50 period sources (paintings and other artwork).


Please visit artsandsciences50.org for more information on the Challenge.



Here are a few of the completed designs...


















All of the designs I have completed and documented (so far) can be found HERE and you can view my project Facebook page Here!

Finishing up some loose ends...

With so much social media (Facebook, Pinterest, etc.) as an outlet, I sometimes forget to keep this blog updated. Here are a few photos of some of my recent (and not so recent) work, as well as my most recent class handouts.
