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 itemsstarted to go on display at Michael’s Craft Stores. Now it’s really on the way and I have to tell you a littlesecret…move a little closer…move a little closer…I’m not much of a SeasonsGreeting kind of guy, now if it involved vampires and werewolves I’d be allin…but cute little snowmen singing Burl Ives songs just never flipped mycookies. This got me thinking…Ican’t be the only one who wouldn’t mind a bit of subversiveness added to theHolidays. So I’m proposingsomething Polar Opposite of the North Pole, something a little off kilter. A class of making Orna-deMents usingfound 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….Imean bwo ho ho ho ho!
Class #2 LightbulbOrna-deMents
Ever wonder what to do with allthose old lightbulbs? Well, the lightbulb has just popped on over my head. Holiday Ornaments…or Orna-deMents ifyou 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 theglass bulb as well- sort of like a ship in the bottle…but much easier. All this will be done using a mixtureof collage, painting, and assemblage. You’ll never look at a burnt outlightbulb the same way. See the light?
