Holy Rollers Online - Shrines That Go Vrooom Vrooom


Workshop Title: Holy Rollers - Shrines That Go Vrooom Vrooom

Student Level : All levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced)

Description of workshop:

Get ready to go for a wild ride.  Get out all those Hot Wheels and Matchbox Cars because we are going to supe those suckers up with all sorts of found objects…and transform them into something shriney. That’s right…shrines that can put the pedal to the metal.  We’ll be using a variety of assemblage techniques to transform everyday toy vehicles using discarded bits and a few other ingredients. Get ready to rev those art-making engines…we are about to embark on a truly moving Online Workshop. ON YOUR MARKS, GET SET, GOOOOOOOO!!!

The Big Race - At the end of the workshop I’ll be racing a bunch of my Holy Rollers on 16 magnificent feet of bright orange Hot Wheels track.

BONUS!!!! - If you’re enrolled in the class you can join the Holy Roller Facebook Group where you’ll be able to meet other attendees, share your work and be eligible to win one of my Holy Rollers.
