Mary named her sculpture Luck Dragon … a piece that evolved from just a chunk of wood found on a beach. Driftwood artists will spend hours, sometimes months working on a particular piece of wood that “speaks” to them.

The Driftwood Sculpture class at the Senior Center meets every Friday, 12:30-2:30PM. The instructor has basic tools available for $15. Fee for the class: $6.25 for members, $8.25 for non-members.

The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Senior Center is located at 18560 1st Ave NE #1, Shoreline, 206-365-1536.
