Spring Fantasy Week
A Week of Polymer Clay Exploration and Discovery
Instructor: Maureen Carlson
Class Description: If you could create anything that you wanted to from polymer clay and mixed media supplies, what would you make? Would it be a character, a doll, a wall piece, decorative items, jewelry or yard art? Would it be made from polymer clay or fabric, Apoxie Sculpt or paper? Would it involve paint or ink or textures, items from nature or from the local antique stores?
While Maureen doesn't promise that ANYTHING and EVERYTHING is possible during Fantasy Week, she does promise that this will be a week for concentrating on your dreams and visions of artistic success.
will be encouraged to imagine, to plan, to learn, to play, to get in
touch with that part which yearns to create. The focus will be on
setting an atmosphere where wonderful things might happen, and usually
Most anything that Maureen teaches in her polymer clay and mixed media repertoire of classes can be set as your intention for your Fantasy Week at Maureen's?
How it Works: On the opening day, each student will plan what he or she would like to accomplish during the week. From those plans, Maureen will then do group and individual lessons to help students accomplish their goals. There will be emphasis on face sculpting, shape-making and polymer clay techniques, as those are Maureen's focus as a teacher, but the studio holds a wide range of resources and inspiration, so expect to be surprised, and delighted!

Note: The flowers in the pictured garden were created by Carol Simmons as part of her exploration of color. She graciously allowed Maureen to use them as part of a collaborative project that they did.
Students in the Fantasy Week class can choose to create flowers, but they will be simpler flowers, done with basic millefiori and alcohol ink techniques.
