"Up Up and Away!" Admit one into Neverland! Each student will learn quickly how to transform toys, vintage/found objects, and at least one main character into their own personal imaginary Neverland. Each Neverland will look totally different than the other. Some will hang on a wall, some might roll with wheels, and some might even take flight. Learn quickly how to combine all these different objects to look like one cohesive balanced work of art. Get equated with my specific process with primers, washes of acrylics, and textures that create depth. Train your brain to think more creatively for your piece, with your title, your story... and create something magical. You will receive: detailed pre-class packet and class packet, main character, wings if you choose, access to all my paints and unique texture supplies not found at Hobby Lobby or Michaels. I'll be bringing extra resin molds of characters and ornate designs, precut toys, found objects, prizes, and goodie bags to make sure your work comes out spectacular. Please see student work from my previous classes above. Come join me in the fun house and enjoy the ride! What? Not sure? Go to my website: www.mixedmediafunhouse.com
