I am a creative person who loves to bring out the creative flow in others. Depending on the story to convey, I will use clay or concrete to sculpt. Oil, acrylic, watercolor or ink to paint. Traditional animation, stop motion or dance to bring movement. I am mostly inspired by nature. I either like to be in it, to make choices that respect it or work with it as a supply or prop. I am looking forward to being able to collaborate with teachers and students, to add color to their practice.
Creative Approach and Experiences OfferedI offer:
-Virtual Mask on a mask workshop, where participants build a full faces mask with any materials available to them, then they build a 'covid face mask' to add on top of the mask they built. Games can be played as we all introduce our new characters to one another. Plus we can play with how our masked character feels with the face mask. We can even get really fancy (think STEAM/makerspace) and add L.E.D lights.
-community mural painting. Working together with a group to come up with the message, goals, design, and painting of a large scale painting directly on a wall or on wood, metal, vinyl or canvas that will be hung on a wall or on the outdoor concrete ground.
-Sculpting techniques with clay (air-hardening or kiln-fired) and supplies collected from nature. (If time and location permits, it can be combined with time to forage for supplies in a forest) These workshops emphasize creating with ZERO waste, non-toxic supplies and being in harmony with nature.
