“Up Up and Away!” Admit one into Neverland! Each student will learn quickly how to transform toys, found objects, and a main character into their own personal imaginary Neverland. Each Neverland will look totally different than the other. Learn how to combine all these different objects to look like one cohesive balanced work of art. Get equated with my specific process with primers and washes of acrylics 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 and class packet, main character, wings, access to my paints and unique supplies not found at hobby lobby or Michaels…I’ll be bringing Precut toys, found objects, prizes, and goodie bags to make sure your work comes out spectacular. Please come and join me on this trip and enjoy the ride. What? Not sure? Go to my website:
