This is the kind of day it was today...warm and sunny
The classic Lincoln Continental convertible ('62?) was parked in front of the ice cream parlor across the parking lot from our store. I will bet the owner of the car made his passengers finish their ice cream before returning to the car!
Thank you for the interesting comments on locals and classes. It was a busy day at the store today and several people were discussing my last blog entry. The workshops will fill up and whoever comes will have a great time with these excellent instructors. I was just making an observation, not a complaint. I really do love to read any and all comments.
Have you seen these "eerie, faceted 3-D paper heads that float on a wall like grotesque hunting trophies? They’re photo-realistic replicas of Rotterdam papercraft artist Burt Simons and his friends, created when Simons had a ‘mid-life crisis’ in 2006 and realized there wasn’t much of him that would be left behind. So, Simons decided to ‘clone himself’, sculpting his head in 3D and using photographs to texture it. He uses a computer program to flatten out the head into printable pieces of paper and then assembles them with glue." Fascinating.
Store classes for March, April and some of May are up and online on the Small Studio website now.
The "Playday" offering next month, April 28th, is all about ATCs. We will take no more than 18 participants. Each person will make 18 ATCs and then we will trade them so everyone goes home with 18 different ATCs. (Thanks, Tamara for this idea.) The morning is free, but requires a reservation. All supplies are included, but you may bring your own if you like. Above are some ATCs (artist trading cards) I made for a publication a few years ago.
John is busy on a new project for the store:
