VA276 - Paint Brush Palooza

$ 85  


What’s your particular palette? Are you a muted, soft-hues sort of artisan or a full-spectrum, rainbow warrior? We will deconstruct a paint brush and then perform a make-over with a riot of color and texture. Yarns, ribbons, shredded fabrics, wire and beads, ephemera, and found objects will replace boring bristles, transforming the brush into a whimsical showpiece. Hidden treasures can be added to complement your personal style.

Materials Fee $20 Includes the following:
I will provide everything needed to complete the project including a paint brush, gobs of yarn and ribbon, fabric to strip, paint, matte medium, glue, wire, decorative papers, and an assortment of eclectic ephemera to suspend within the yarns (and chocolate!).
I will have to tools on hand to share in class including pliers, scissors, paint brushes and heat guns.

I will also have some optional specialty items and vintage treasures for purchase.

Supplies Needed for Class: An art apron and a sense of adventure.

Optional items: If you have any special artifacts or treasures you’d like to incorporate into your project, bring them along and we’ll try to attach them.
