One of the oldest types of art, woodcarving is an art-form common to all cultures, from the stone-age onwards.   Relief carving is a type of wood carving in which figures are carved in a flat panel of wood.  The figures project only slightly from the background, rather than standing freely.   As wood is removed from the panel, around the objects traced onto it from the pattern, the objects themselves stand up from the background wood.

Carver, John Modjewski of Eagle River will teach this class for those interested in wood carving and provide wood to be used in class and project ideas.
