This class is for all levels! Beginner through Advanced.

Each student will create their own personal giant fifteen inch handmade foam head that I have created to use as a base and guide. If the student would like indentions cut into the head to create another layer inside the head they need to contact Kristen Penrod by email (kristenpenrodart@gmail.com) with the subject (Giant Assemblage Head) immediately after signing up for class with a maximum of three indentions and indicate where they would like their indentions cut with measurements. A drawing would be very helpful! I would like to do all the cutting of the head prior to class because it is extremely timely, messy and I want to spend our time creating rather than cutting foam. Day 1 will consist of priming, texturing and building found objects onto the head. They will dry overnight. Day 2 will consist of painting and detail work. I feel that these heads will be extensions of ourselves so I am so excited to see what we come up with! If for any reason you need another head I will be selling them for $40.00 each.
