The above photo is a sample of what we will be creating. Rather than the square shown here, the size we will be completing is approximately 8" x 10". The frame is not included in the class. This house design will incorporate the idea of using recycling while creating art, demonstrating how reusing and repurposing materials can result in a wonderful piece of work. Rather than a canvas, the substrate will be heavy weight mat board. We will make our own house stencil to work with out of corrugated cardboard. . You will be able to choose your color pallets from a few selections, one is shown above and another sample picture is shown below.
After the house is created, a few layers of background will be applied with paint, papers and texturizing. Embellishments will be added using recycled hardware and materials that can be selected from an odds and ends box.
The direction each person will go is individual- will this be for yourself? Do you want it to have a saying? Will it be for a gift? Give some thought to this before coming to class, since we only have one session, you want to be completed by the end of the evening. If you have any questions or want to run some ideas by me, contact me.
This piece was created for a wedding gift and framed in a manner similar to the top photo.
