Classroom No. 106
Session One: June 6 - July 17
For this workshop I have create a sculpture designed with polymer clay and mixed media elements in this instance the themes I have chosen were inspired by my love for the desert and the first people of Arizona. I am teaching students how to create a variety of spirit dolls based on these themes.
The Blue Corn Maiden and Sedona Moon are, for me, core symbols of abundance, prosperity and serenity. The rich colors of the land connected with the stories, lore and traditions of the Native American Hopi and Anasazi people inspired me to make these figures.
The first section of this workshop introduces students to The Blue Corn Maiden's Journey. These lessons include how to create Kitchen Witches on a whisk attached to a glass jar.
I would love to share with you my art in progress and some of those things that inspire me along the way.
