Fort Worth Community Arts Center will present a pyrography demonstration by Marsha Wilson. Pyrography, from the Latin fire and writing, is the technique of making art on a surface with heated metal. Wilson uses mainly photographs to create her art on wood, paper, and leather. She uses the woodburning pen much like a pencil or stick of charcoal to draw with heat. Images with strong lines, dramatic shadows, or intense texture work well with this toasting medium. Variations in color are achieved by keeping the heated tip longer in one place for darker tones and moving it faster for lighter shades.

Wilson is a self-taught artist whose show, "Western Roots," is on display during the Cultura del Vaquero program at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center. Wilson will be demonstrating her pyrography on birch wood, paper, and vegetable tanned leather.
