Magical Mask Making

Magical Mask copy

Exploring {hands-on + mixed-media + sculpture + mask making} in just four days together from 9AM to noon in our MAGICAL MASK MAKING workshop, each 6 – 9 year old artist created a magical dragon mask!  Each artist was super excited to take home their 3-D sculpture just before the July 4th festivities got underway!  We were thrilled to create eleven of these 3-D sculptures primarily out of recycled + reclaimed + re-used goods.  The interior of each sculpture housed a handcrafted, plaster, facial mask.  Take a peek below!

This week we are excited to announce we’ll be at Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass, Colorado instructing Carve Away- An Exploration of Linocuts + Block Printing!  Read more!

On July 31 + August 14 HANDMAKERY:  A Children’s Art Studio will be hosting two more CRAFT NIGHTS: Under the Stars + In the Studio for children ages 6 – 9 years of age from 5:30 – 7:30PM!  These special nights are filling fast!  June’s CRAFT NIGHT was a huge success!  Enroll today while spaces are still available, last month our special event sold out!
