Over two classes, participants will create a minibeast sculpture, using a variety of mixed media.

In these sessions, participants will learn how to form newspaper to create the body of their minibeast sculpture. This underused technique, which uses masking tape to hold the form together, is versatile and can be developed as a skill to create all kinds of forms.

Participants will begin by selecting, studying and drawing a bug, working from images and books. Once they are ready, they will create the basic structure of their chosen bug, using formed newspaper. They will then use wire or chenille sticks to add legs and antennae, before moving on to complete it with paint and embellishments. They will walk away with their very own, larger than life sculpture of their chosen bug. All materials and equipment are provided and included in the cost.

These sessions are education-based, but a lot of fun, designed for students who enjoy art and want to develop their skills. Children needing tuition and supervision for their own artwork are welcome to attend.

Purchase bulk sessions for $40 per class, or individual projects (which usually run across two sessions).
