Michael is back !!!! Dec 1 and 2 2012 at THE ART CLINIC:
Class #1 Santa Clops and the Polar Opposites
Well “Ho Ho Ho” and all of that stuff. It’s beginning to look a lot like Xmas, but then again it was looking that way in early August when the Holiday items started to go on display at Michael’s Craft Stores. Now it’s really on the way and I have to tell you a little secret…move a little closer…move a little closer…I’m not much of a Seasons Greeting kind of guy, now if it involved vampires and werewolves I’d be all in…but cute little snowmen singing Burl Ives songs just never flipped my cookies. This got me thinking…I can’t be the only one who wouldn’t mind a bit of subversiveness added to the Holidays. So I’m proposing something Polar Opposite of the North Pole, something a little off kilter. A class of making Orna-deMents using found objects, weird thingies and discarded toys. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it? Get ready for Santa Claws and his friends…bwa ha ha ha ha….I mean bwo ho ho ho ho!
Class #2 Lightbulb Orna-deMents
Ever wonder what to do with all those old lightbulbs? Well, the lightbulb has just popped on over my head. Holiday Ornaments…or Orna-deMents if you prefer. Using a burnt out lightbulb, you will create hanging art pieces, not only by adorning the exterior of the bulb, but inserting imagery inside the glass bulb as well- sort of like a ship in the bottle…but much easier. All this will be done using a mixture of collage, painting, and assemblage. You’ll never look at a burnt out lightbulb the same way. See the light?
Each class is $125- take one or both!!!
