Art Is...You! October 7th & 8th!! 2 Workshops!

I'll be teaching Sculptural Bird & Beast Ornaments @ Art Is...You, October 8th!
We'll create your favorite avian & or four legged creatures in this workshop. Using simple sculpting techniques you'll make your own flock of birds, pack of dogs, warren of rabbits, any beast of your choice!

In this workshop we'll learn the techniques to design & sculpt our own personal music box.

Pick your favorite tune from a long list of available songs (see the link for Kikkerland music boxes) & illustrate it in three dimensions.

We'll use polymer clay over a glass ornament, wire, lollipop sticks for leg support, wire & oil paints for the figure & a round cardboard box as a base. Using a technique of applying, rubbing & reapplying oil paints a vintage feeling is achieved.

Orlando Fandango

I got back from the Orlando Polymer Clay Fandango on Monday & I'm still pooped! What a great time we had, three full days + of creating! My students were talented & open & they made the most unique, original pieces. Everyone I met was generous, fun & funny! The organizers put on a great event & worked so hard; the other teachers, Meredith Arnold & Barbara McGuire had everyone laughing & learning & the demos by Linda Hess & Alice Stroppel were swamped & full of information! I'm so glad I went, I recommend the Fandango & plan to go back some day!
