3D Forms: A 4-week Mixed Media Course with Bonny Leibowitz

Wire, plaster, encaustic and more!

Thursdays: March 18th, March 25th, April 1st and April 8th, 2021

This weekly structure allows forms to dry and a chance to consider "next moves" and prepare any questions between sessions.

noon to 4pm CST each day

This course is limited to 5 in-person and 5 home Zoomers

The cost of this workshop is:

$575 for In-person participants including many supplies

$475 for home Zoomers

This course is all about materials and ways to combine them into 3-D objects. We'll be building various forms with wire, plaster and encaustic with additional optional elements including a spray foam, textiles, fibers and branches. This course includes a talk and Power Point of artists working today with various materials and installations in exciting ways and we'll be winding it all up with ways to hang the works or display on the wall or shelf. During the course, I'll be speaking with each participant individually to flush out ideas and discuss ways of moving forward.

For those of you who have not used encaustic - no experience necessary. For home Zoomers: this will be a fairly simple set up - good ventilation advised.
