Meet Jen Rizzo

Santos Cage Dolls II: Inspired Figures

Let’s dive into clay, plaster, wood, concrete and wire to make Santos and art dolls! If you’ve taken the first Santos dolls class, this class expands on earlier material and introduces new techniques,projects and doll forms!

We’ll make 2 traditional Santos dolls,one with a traditional cage base, and the other standing, and then head off into making art dolls inspired by nature and birds,such as “She takes flight”, “Wearing feathers and wire”,”Sunflower girl” and concrete mini-dolls for garden fairies. We’ll also make the easiest Santos doll ever using something completely unexpected!

We’ll use ordinary and accessible household items to make armatures and frames, and learn different facial sculpting techniques, and skills such as making molds of faces and heads, and casting in plaster to be able to recreate elements of our dolls so they can easily be reproduced. We’ll make wings from various materials and work with wire, wood, plaster, concrete, paint, wire mesh and more!
I love mixing all kinds of materials, and getting my hands dirty, and I am so excited to share this class and help open your inspiration and create with you

The registration price for this course is $42.

Some of my Favorites {Come and Join Us}

I was inspired all last week with the 2013 Holiday Housewalk!

32 creative bloggers all coming together and opening their home was so much fun to be a part of.

I loved so much about each home but I put together a little collage of some of my favorites.

Once I put them together I thought it was obvious how much I love a touch of black in my decor and typography!

If you want to see the whole tour from the beginning click HERE.

You can find tons of inspiration by checking out the Deck The Halls Holiday Housewalk Pinterest page.

Now you can be a part of the walk too!

Jen is having a linky party where YOU can link up and share your home all dressed up for Christmas.

A Girls Weekend Giveaway {Yes, I am totally serious}

When was the last time that you took a little weekend away with your girlfriends?

{If it has been awhile…keep reading because this post is gonna GET GOOD!!!}

As my children are getting older I have been able to enjoy that luxury more than when they were babies.

There were MANY years that I was lucky to get away for one day every six months!!!    HAHA…you know it is true!

I am heading to Illinois in three short weeks to teach three classes at the NaDa Farm Sale.

I was just talking with two of the other artists that will be teaching and we want to do something pretty special for you guys!

I am so giddy just typing this!!!

I will be teaching an art of business class, a vintage mixed media class and a vintage journal class.

Jennifer Rizzo will be joining me on Friday night for the “Avenues to the Art of Business” class and she is also teaching a “Reflections of the Prairie” mixed media class on Saturday morning.

Jill Harris will be teaching “Salvaged Treasures”…a jewelry class using vintage pieces!!

We have all come together to offer one of you a GIRLS WEEKEND PACKAGE!

You will also get a FREE hotel room courtesy of the three of us.
