|Paper Clay Milagros in shadow boxes|
Classes take place in a lovely private studio with an adjacent garden away from other guests. Each day begins after breakfast at the casa with hands-on sessions in the morning. In the afternoon we break for a delicious late lunch in the Mexican tradition, prepared at the casa. Afternoons and evening are open for independent studio work and exploring this creative city. All projects will incorporate our travel experiences so that your artwork will reflect your wonderful time in Oaxaca.
Days 1-2 Making Milagros
Make your own Mexican Milagros to honor the magic of miracles with a new spin on an ancient tradition. Learn all the basics of working with paper clay, including imprinting, sculpting, layering, painting, casting, and making multiples of your own work. Some materials included.
Honor your personal path by creating your own angels, saints, guardians and goddesses to remind you of your goals and aspirations. These creative figures of affirmation will bring your dreams to life as you design, develop and decorate each art piece. Learn a host of mixed media techniques including painting, collage work, embellishment making and attachment methods. Some materials included.
Days 5-6 Nichos and Retablos Assemblages
Reach inside and bring out your best intentions for the future by creating and constructing little alters to your dreams and desires. Use all your newly learned mixed media and paper clay techniques in these mindful assemblages. Some materials included.
No previous art experience necessary. All projects work for beginning and experienced artists alike.
