Art Workshops for Fall!
Glowing Wooden Earrings @Jansen Art Center
Rachel Simpson, Saturday, Oct. 28th 2023, 1:00–4:00pm
In this brilliantly bright art class, students will learn how to personalize their very own set of earrings. The instructor will demonstrate how to create and paint the earrings. Students will dream up their designs and use wooden circles or ovals as the base of the earrings. The earrings will be painted in the pointillism style. Pointillism is a technique of painting in which small, distinct dots or strokes of color are applied to a surface to form an image. Students will then draw and paint their designs onto the earrings. We will use special inks and neon-colored paints to really make those earrings GLOW! Students will leave class with their very own pair of hand-painted earrings, or the earrings can be worn separately as necklaces.
