Plumed Serpent and Moon Goddesses: The ONLINE Class
It's time for another OnLine Workshop. This time I'm bringing my Mexico class to the computer screen. I'll be bringing techniques and recipes used in that Day of the Dead workshop to you folks who couldn't make the journey.
Class Starts June 26th!
REGULAR PRICE $135
PURCHASE BEFORE May 15th: $99.99
In honor of the mystical, magical quality of Mesoamerica , I thought it would be interesting to explore some of the myths and legends from Mexican culture. The gods are wondrous strange and the tales are even stranger. So for this class we will create assemblage constructions that represent a specific deity or myth from the region. It will be a bit of free for all…you can create whatever you like but with a theme in mind. To help you out I will share stories about the various gods and heroes for a bit of inspiration.
In this class you will create a shrine to your favorite unpronounceable deity from south of the border. Perhaps Mictlantecuhtli (god of the underworld), Quetzalcoatl (the plumed serpent), the bat god of the Zapotecs or maybe the clan of drunken rabbit deities. You will get construction methods, tips and techniques with a Mesoamerican twist. I've also come up with a special Mexican deity color palette!
This class is a bit different from some of my other OnLine classes....of course it will include methods and techniques to guide your creations, but I'm also including some travel footage from the Plumed Serpent Workshop I held in Mexico during Day of the Dead 2014. I've included video footage I took at the ruins and museum at the ancient Aztec capital which will help in deciding the potential deities you wish to explore artistically. I'll also be including the final critique of art created at the Oaxaca workshop. You'll be astounded what students came up with.
Special Features of this Workshops
This will be an interesting twist on some of my other online classes. Not only will you get the studio techniques and projects but you will also get to share a bit of the journey to Mexico. I'll be including some video taken during the Mexican adventure.
In my in-person workshops I always have a bit of a critique at the end of class. Mostly it is a way to see what students created and explore different methods and solutions. In this On-Line class I'll be sharing the video of the class critique in Mexico. Amazing projects!
