Design a dog, fashion a feline or create a critter and "bring it to life" with paper mache. Students will use a variety of recyclable materials including plastic bottles, cardboard and newspaper to create an animal's body shape, then add layers of paper mache, embellishments and paint to create their very own "Art-Official Pet". During the process, we'll explore a variety of techniques, textures and recipes in paper mache. Materials fee covers all needed supplies. This workshop meets for 4 Mondays.
Whether you have been art journaling for years or just a short time, join me for a monthly Art Journaling Meet-Up. Learn new techniques each month, use your supplies in new ways and share with other art journalers.
In this workshop, artist Kevin Tobin will show you how to use repeatable “gel skins” along with the direct transfer of imagery into various mediums, and other tricks to take a pre-existing image and transfer it into a piece of work.
There will be prize drawings, free product give-aways, and all of the necessary materials including substrates and wet and dry samples are included. Students only need bring a small paint brush and palette knife, some paper toweling, a small container for water, a pair of scissors and some (either colored pencils or water color pencils, or oil pastels, or crayons, etc) to make some rudimentary marks (ZERO drawing skills required).
