Upcoming Classes! Part 1

I’ve been busy scheduling classes, workshops and fun for my fun-loving, art-exploring students, friends and (yes!) even YOU! I posted a reminder about the next “Open Studio” session this Wednesday, I’ve got several more of those scheduled – both on Wednesdays and a few Saturdays as well.  I’ll post the rest of the topics and dates in a few days. First I wanted to tell you about a workshop that we’ve scheduled that I am REALLY excited about! It’s something we’ve not done before, which is always fun for me. I’m hoping it will be something exciting for YOU too!

On Friday March 2nd (6 to 8 p.m.) and again Saturday March 3rd (9:30-11:30 a.m.) Mark & I are going to host a “Create your own Metal Sculpture” workshop! We’ll have a variety of different types, shapes and sizes of metal for you to select from. Once you’ve made your selection we will help you as you design your very own metal wall sculpture!

After you’ve created your unique design it will then be prepared, welded and polished for you and available to pick up in two weeks. The size of the sculptures can be up to 11×14. Sculpture this size that we design & create cost $125. For this special workshop your cost will be only $75!

Wall Sculpture #35

What do you do when you have a client that is interested in your work but this piece is too big?

And this piece is too small?

And they really like aspects of both pieces?

You create a custom piece, just for them, of course!

We’d love to create a piece for YOU, too!

With the Deja Vu Show coming in two days I thought I would feature more metal and mixed media artwork that my husband, Mark, and I created recently!

Mark & I have been busy creating new collaborative artwork the last few months. This is the first new wall sculpture we created, I really like the fun lines in the piece. We also created a “spine” out of old rocker arms!

How cool is that? It’s painted with a textured, off white paint that give it the look & feel of rough bones. The last piece I’m sharing today is a combination of welded metal bars and triangle wood packing spacers.

The spacers were painted and different types of wire added to add some splashes of color. These pieces will all be on display at the upcoming Deja Vu recycled art show in Columbus, Indiana.

Recently Mark & I created several new pieces of collaborative art. It’s taking me a while to get new things online lately but I can at least get this one posted for you! I even have some progress images. The very beginning was to design & weld the metal that the rest of the wall sculpture is attached to. Once that was done I cut the wood pieces, sanded them and began with the painting process with black paint on both sides of each piece.

After that it was time to get creative! Laying the pieces out in their approximate positions I began to add red, gold, grey & white paint in random patterns across the pieces.

The pieces that look like cardboard are actually shapes cut from acrylic plexiglass that I stained a deep red color and then sealed. Once the paint had dried it was time to assemble the pieces using screws, wood glue and other adhesives (depending on the piece) until it was complete, adjusting the design along the way until I was pleased with it.

This piece is currently hanging in my studio, why don’t you schedule a time to come and see it in person?
