Personify Anything Class

Expand your Imagination and Explode your sculpting skills. Break out in this exciting and stimulating class with?
Kathryn Walmsley
Start Date: October 15, 2010

In this class we?ll be working on two small projects and one larger one of your choice. The two small projects are "What a Blast" and "Which Came First" pictured below. The third project will be one you design. As the photo for the birdhouse shows you really can "Personify Anything". I will show you lots of other objects I?ve personified to help you imagine what you can do in this class. A big part of the fun in this class will be working out all the technical details of your own big project and I hope you?ll let me help you create just what you have in mind. We will work in paper clay and cover everything required to be successful with the sculpting and finishing phase and then move on to various painting and embelishments to complete the pieces.
