1/3 scale Bald Eagle

September 9 - 29, 2018  SPECIAL EVENT IN GWINN, MICHIGAN!

...perched on a carved Granite Boulder!

Few creatures personify Power, Integrity and Majesty than the mighty Bald Eagle! As perhaps one of the most easily identifiable birds in the world, the Bald Eagle is the perfect subject for the artist and carver. Join Floyd Scholz at Jim and Pam Krausman's up in beautiful Gwinn, Michigan next September for 10 days of learning and comradery as you work to bring this great bird to life. Carved out of the finest Tupelo wood available, this 1/3 scale, 12" tall powerhouse will stand tall perched upon a carved base simulating a Granite boulder. You may return home tired, but you'll be armed with new found confidence in your ability to tackle any carving project! Your Bald Eagle will be something you'll be plenty proud to display for all to see and admire. In just 10 short days, you will create a sculpture destined to become your family's most cherished heirloom which will be fought over for generations! Don't delay, sign up today as this is one class that is sure to sell out faster than a diving Bald Eagle in pursuit of a Salmon dinner!

2018 Note from Floyd...

Happy New Year fellow bird and art lovers!

2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the passing of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act which offered federal protection to wild birds of all shapes and sizes.

2018 is the YEAR of the BIRD so let's celebrate!

There has never been a better time to come and join me in celebrating the beauty and majesty of the wonderous creatures.

As you'll discover when you peruse the 2018 Vermont Raptor Academy schedule, Owls will be the stars of the show! Life-size Barn Owls will "book-end" this year's offerings.

So... in case you may be thinking "How's Floyd?" I am READY!!

With my medical issues now a distant memory and enjoying better health than I've known in a long time, I am enthusiastically anticipating the time we'll spend together carving, painting and learning more about the beautiful, traditional artform of bird carving. I hope to see you in 2018!
