There’s been a change in the workshop schedule at Art and Soul Virginia. The Mad Hatter class has been magically transformed into a Voodoo Doodad Doll class…don’t ask me how…it’s a secret.
If you’re interested in this class click below to enroll. The description follows.
Voodoo Doodad Dolls
Monday, May 7th
Time to do that Voodoo that you do so well. In this class you’ll be creating found object, mixed media Voodoo Dolls. Using techniques involving assemblage, collage, painting and anything else that pops in your head, we’ll be creating contemporary versions of this fascinating Haitian art form. What most people don’t know is that Voodoo dolls can be used for positive ends...love...money...success...etc. I can’t promise you that they’ll actually work but I guarantee they’ll look cool when you’re done.
NO BAD MOJO
Disclaimer: All Voodoo Dolls created in this class are intended for artistic and entertainment purposes only. Any use for ill will...no matter how entertaining that may seem.... is not the class intent.
This is a project workshop and students will all leave with at least one completed project (perhaps more).

There are some very cool words and it will be tough to nail them down. Good job.
Here's a little treat...
I will post the winning word and inventor on my blog....the other words I'm keeping in a vault until July. Why? Well because Somerset Studios wants to feature some of the words in the July/Aug edtion of Melange. Don't know how many they will use, so I can't promise you that yours will appear (especially since I had so many entries), but it will be something to look forward to.
On Jan. 19th I'll announce the Master of the Word.
ON ANOTHER NOTE
I've been away for the last three weeks hangin with a friend. First in S.F. then to New York. I had a great time. In NY we managed to see the ball drop on New Years Eve, and hooked up with a bunch of Cortona, Italy workshop attendees...what fun.
In S.F. I came across an alley in the Mission District filled with murals, so I thought I'd share them:
