DREAM MONSTERS - May 25-26 - Vancouver (2-Day Workshop)

265.00

Please join me for this 2 day workshop May 25th-26th, 2018 located at Colours Art & Framing in Port Coquitlam, BC

Have you ever dreamt of a creature that has never existed (as far as you know)? When I was a teenager, I remember dreaming about a huge monster with a film projector head and a giant chicken body…yes…I agree, that is very weird. What he projected from his mechanical cranium was in the future …things destined to be or possibly destined to be, which, since he was a monster, included quite a bit of mayhem and pandemonium (Godzilla type of stuff…buildings toppling etc.). Over the years I’ve had a few such bizarre dreams about crazy monsters and it seemed to me that anthropomorphizing everyday objects into outlandish beasts might be an intriguing exercise. Thus…Dream Monsters were created.

In this workshop, you will bring a variety of found objects to create unusual critters. Different objects will be used for different parts of the monster’s anatomy. Then using assemblage, sculpting and painting techniques a new species will be brought to life. To quote Dr. Frankenstein, “IT’S ALIVE!”A base for your character(s). Could be a small plaque or a piece of wood...feel free to think out of the box.
