Day of the Dead is celebrated in Mexico between October 31st and November 2nd. Day of the Dead is a festive occasion, a time to celebrate, much like a family reunion. Making an altar (or ofrenda as it’s sometimes called in Spanish) for the occasion can be a way for you to honor the life of someone who was important to you, or remember your ancestors. We will use a small wooden coffin and add our own colorful festive decorations and images.

Learn to Draw A Realistic Face

Every face is unique but did you know that the placement of the eyes, nose mouth and ears follow a common pattern? We will take you step-by-step through the process of drawing a face using basic proportions. Then we will introduce how to modify the basics to create a unique face.

Wayne Thiebaud/Cake Sculpture
Cake Sculpture
Create a sculptural piece of “cake”! (Sorry you can’t eat it.)
Inspired by artist Wayne Thiebaud’s luscious images of desserts we will make a three-dimensional slice of cake using everyday materials: cardboard, masking tape and paint. Use your creativity to personalize your slice of cake.

Anamorphic Drawing
Anamorphic drawing
Anamorphic drawing uses forced perspective to create an illusion. We start with basic shapes such as a sphere or cube and create a series of drawings e.g.a sphere can be a baseball, beach ball, a face, etc.. When you look at the drawing 1 to 2 feet away the object looks like it’s floating!
