Description

This beautiful decorated Art Guitar was lovingly created by program participants of The Douglas Center Art From The Heart Creations program.  Approximately twelve program participants under the skillful guidance of two artist facilitators transformed this guitar using mosaic and paper collage techniques. The font of the guitar features materials from stained and vitreous glass, rhinestones, metal jewelry, beads, pearls and mosaic bezel insets. Metal trinkets on the neck of the guitar display the words Peace and Love.  The back and sides of the guitar are beautifully adorned with painted and cut-out mandala art works on paper arranged on a metallic teal painted surface.
