Hello Vistors,

My favorite time of year has arrived and  hope you are enjoying the cooler weather as I am.  It also means that many winter visitor gourd friends are coming to town as well.  Please give me a call to schedule a class for the latest designing and coloring techniques.  Classes at home are one on one and  to small groups.  I will travel to you for larger group requests.  My teaching is a very sensible approach to designing a gourd project and anyone with the desire to learn can achieve amazing results no matter your skill level.  Many beginners to gourd art love the one on one  attention because we can address your personal desire for learning the arts.  Please call to schedule a date that fits both our schedules.  Call 520-298-6978  Classes are usually all day from 10 am to 4 pm and prices will vary according to product use and added embellishments.  If you are interested in learning the use of specific products or a technique, the fee is $10.00 an hour and you can determine the time needed for this visit.   You can also bring your unfinished gourd projects that you don’t know how to complete.  We will give it the finish you will be happy with.

If there is something you want and don’t see it, please contact me I will be happy to help you.  Contact Maria at 520-298-6978

Thank you for visiting Maria’s Art Creations. My name is Maria Dellos. I pioneered the use of Ink Dyes on Gourd Art. I have 35 years experience in the arts and 20 years experience with rubber stamping. In 2000, I discovered the world of gourd art and proceeded to carry over all my experience to gourds. In my book, “New Gourd Art with Ink Dyes”, I show you how to use ink dyes and other products that support my techniques. Many patterns are included plus valuable information to help you in designing gourd art.

If you would like a short version of my techniques for no cost, click on techniques on the home page or visit  You can watch how I use  Memories Inks, Embossing Powders, Accent Powders, Metal Leafing, Heat Activated Glue, Wax and Varnish and much more.  These videos are very valuable for quick information about using specific products, however, it is only a short introduction and does not replace the valuable hands on learning in my classes. Classes are flexible for dates and times. I offer classes one on one and to groups, bring a friend and enjoy a day of gourd art like you never experienced.
