DOLL REMAKE CLASS  

Let me explain my vision for this 4 week class. The idea is to take a Monster High doll (large head and movable limbs), strip it of it's hair and face, and totally rebuild it into a new character of your choice. This is about character creation using a ready made form that you strip bare and build back up again. To do this, we can modify the body with sculpting clay, and we'll completely re-paint the face and add new hair, or no hair at all, or you may want to keep the hair but change it in some way... cut it, band it, etc.. your choice! The goal is to work on one doll for 4 class periods to fully create a one of a kind, brand new character. I do have Barbie dolls we can either practice on, or remake into a second character.

Here are just some examples of what you can do.... AND, this class isn't just for girls or kids who like to play with dolls! Boys are welcome! Parents are welcome! In fact, I'm planning to do one inspired by the deer doll shown below. You can get super creative by say taking off part of an arm and rebuilding a bionic one! This is about the art of character development, and the doll will most likely be a display piece or a doll you'll have to play with carefully.

Are you in?  I can take up to 12 in this class.

DETAILS: Ages 11 and up. (a bit younger is okay if their attention span is such that they can focus on one doll for 4 weeks.) MARCH 11, 14, 18 & 21, 11- 1:30. Kids should bring a light lunch or snack. 4 classes total, $85.00/ child, $20 sibling discounts.

June 10- 14: BASIC SKILLS WOOD WORKING CAMP  (ages 10- 14).  Learn how to use basic wood working tools and            make simple joints such as a butt joint and a dowel joint as you design and build your own bird feeder or bird house (choose one!),  a box with hinged lid,  a wooden bench, and an art supply or tool box made from reclaimed wood.  Nothing is a kit!  

June 17- 21:  Ages 5- 9: "Art Spark!"  Spark your child's creativity with this camp that will inspire them to try new mediums          and techniques while using their imagination!  Paint, work with clay, experiment with various sculpting techniques, draw,            and much more!

June 24- 28:  Ages 10- 14: Graphic Arts Camp!  In this camp, your child will learn about and practice age old printing                        techniques! Intaglio, mezzotint, wood cuts, lithographs, monotypes, and multi color lino cuts will inspire your art minded              child to develop their skills and imagination and will take their learning to a whole new level!  Some of the techniques will be      adapted for safety reasons while being kept as authentic as possible.  Each technique will be discussed in connection with an          artist or time period for further enrichment and inspiration!  

July 8- 12: WOOD WORKING CAMP level 2 (ages 10- 14): If you've taken Wood working with me before, this is the camp      for you!  You will learn how to make a pocket joint, you'll work with exotic woods, and challenge yourself by building on the skills you've already learned!

July 15- 19:  Ages 5- 9: Clay for Kids!  A week long camp of working with many different kinds of clay!  Earthenware, polymer clay, paper clay and more!  I may try to get a visiting artist to attend... working on this!

July 22- 26: Ages 10- 14: "SCULPTURAL CREATIONS!"  In this camp, your older child will take sculpting to a new level as they work with glass (stained glass if I can find someone to come do this for us, or if I can learn it myself), designing and creating a fine, detailed mosaic using small, colored glass pieces, pebbles or shells (choose one!), a free form concrete planter, plaster hand casting, something (not sure yet) using colored resin, and one, nice clay piece that will be hollow and have cut out areas so a tea candle can be placed inside.  The kids will also work as a group to make a large, horse themed relief sculpture made from metal that will be donated to Serenity Saviors Equine Rescue and Therapy Center.  

July 29- Aug. 2: Ages 9- 14: "DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE!" An Art Adventure in Wonderland!  Our Art Adventure will include the following main projects:  Three (or more) Tim Burton style sculptures using polymer clay, earthenware clay, and plaster relief, a Steam punk creation based on a character of your child's choice, one planned out and gently guided canvas painting, a Digital Poster which I'll have printed for your child, A "Tea Time Table, card people, a Mad Hatter's hat, and more!!  Snacks for this week will be Alice in Wonderland themed, and the ice cream each day will be small vanilla cups to go with the themed snack. :)
