Art is a gift, the gift that comes from the minds that ventures into the most wondrous of places, your imagination. It expresses what you visualize and what you feel, bringing it to light and it's beauty.
Allow yourself to open the portal of your imagination and then guide your hands to do it's  lovely work, feel the magic! The class is about teaching you how to do fun sculptures. Bring your imagination into play and sink your fingers into clay art. Let the Fun begin!!!

Before I begin a supply list of fun goodies for this class.

There are four videos in stages, that means I will teach stages 1, 2, 3 and 4 showing you how the  sculpture develops. First you will do four sketches about what you want your sculpture to look like. The stages are Sculpting, waiting for drying for at least 4 days depending on size of sculpture , sanding the piece,  painting and creating your wood frame panel in acrylic. You can add scraps of decorative collage if you like. The first two will be about that. The third and fourth videos will be about sculpting the actual piece with clay. Sanding and painting will not be added. At this point, you will know how to create your pieces.

There are four videos - Frida Kahlo head and body, The Rabbit Girl head and body, The fox girl  head Sculpture and Frida head sculpture.

A mix media piece in color pencils on thick paper 9 x 12

Lush green and whimsy tones
Not yet finish!

Since I was a little girl I knew creating was my passion to emotionally connect into a world of my own and to disconnect  myself from the gloom in which I lived in at the time. I remember being so young and impressionable felt as if my eyes had huge lenses and all my senses were heighten.  I felt and saw everything to a high degree, and how it affected me. 

As I got older and still impressionable, I realised I had the ability to take the pain and soften my lenses to tone the imagery as a passing event rather then letting it affect me or repress it. It is only a dull picture I can now sully place without it's raging distress.

I can now exaggerate the decay of an unpleasant event into something beautiful.  Feels like magic. The ability and freedom to do so at any given moment creatively becomes my source of therapy in a world I live in. The world as cruel as it can be and yet  beautiful for it's native lands and people who continue to make a difference in the world brings a smile and joy.

I step outside and hear the birds, feel and smell the green lush and tall trees  around me, And the fresh air nature procures, is my best companion. The inspiration to my art and my spirit.  
I continue to use the elements and power to blossom in my art. Doing this, I grow too. That's important to me, to take steps to evolve I allow myself to conquer and challenge any fear that gets in my way and use it to my advantage. 

 Channeling  my emotions into art, is a wonderful journey. An escape and go beyond, feels  and is, an adventure to my spirit. It is like magic and story evolving into color as well, is so poetic to me.  I'm my own director and producer.  When the outside world feels like chaotic muck and at times eerie.  I take what is unpleasant and turn into something beautiful. 

 To make a difference in the world means the whole world to me. When making someone smile and happy with my art, it embraces  me with great amount of happiness.  I know I'm doing something completely right and good.
