Class Description
Learn a brand new way to make art in this fun class using inventive paper clay and mixed media techniques. Using an air-dried, paper maché clay, participants will learn to sculpt bas-relief forms onto boards, then carve, sand, and finish them with acrylic paint and collage materials. These techniques are perfect for beginners and advanced students alike as they inspire experimentation and stir creativity yet are very flexible and forgiving. This week will be devoted to capturing nature in a variety of ways with simple sculpting techniques. The clay adds dimension to flat work and allows for new painting opportunities and textural options. Students are encouraged to bring ideas and images related to nature. Inspirational images of birds, insects and plants will be provided.
