Dear Upper Valley friends,
We've expanded our offerings for the "April is Magic" Weekend Sculpture Workshop Series for 2017 at Long River Gallery & Gifts in White River Junction. We'll take you behind our sliding tin barn door into Long River's back-room studio space for a magical two-day weekend workshop mystery learning and sculpture-building adventure in multiple media. Come express yourself with us in our cool, new hidden studio art space in the Coolidge Block in downtown WRJ.
Now offering Anna's Forest Fairy Spirit Sculpting Workshop on April 1 & 2, and on April 22 & 23 from 10 AM - 2 PM. You'll be carefully guided in this small class setting by our artist in residence, Anna Hranovska Vincellete. Anna has sculpted and taught in Eastern Europe and in St. Petersburg, Russia. She's sold her work in the far-flung markets of Moscow, Russia and White River Junction, VT. You'll build a metal frame and apply polymer clay, make eyes of glass with paint, and all limbs, fingers, right down to the fingernails. The face structure will be the focus, using clay to develop your own expressive style. Everything flows from the face. Your new sculpture figure will be appx. 8 - 10 inches in height.
In addition, we're also offering Anna's Turtle Sculpting Workshop. Dates for this workshop are April 8 & 9, and April 29 & 30, from 10 AM - 2 PM. Anna's turtle pieces have been admired and sought after by many art collectors around the world. Her technique in this workshop will include polymer clay and paper clay/paper mache. As with the Forest Fairy Spirit, facial expression will be a key component, as will turtle shell design and execution, right down to the under carapace and toenails! You'll create and take hone a piece you will cherish that will be between 8 - 10 inches in length.
Cost for each 2-day workshop: $220 plus a $25 materials fee. Please contact email@example.com to express your interest. Please send preferred weekend dates. Also, very briefly explain your prior art/craft experience (which is preferred). Adults only please. Limit of 4 students per workshop. Thank you, and may the positive power of the arts follow you wherever you roam!
