April 28, 2019 – Polymer and Mixed Media Exploration


SKU: N/A Category:


Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present world renowned mixed media artist, Christi Friesen for three individual polymer clay workshops.
Christi is an award-winning artist, specializing in polymer clay, embellished with mixed media. She uses a variety of gems, pearls, beads, fiber, artifacts, metal and found objects in her jewelry, figurines, vessels, 2-dimensional art and sculpture.
Christi teaches throughout the United States, France, Italy, Ireland, Australia, Japan, and Cruise ships. Throughout the world, Christi uses humor and positive energy to encourage students to stretch their creativity, technical skills and artistic confidence.
Her work explores the exuberance of life, stating, “It seems to me that one of the joys in life is to be interested. Interested in what you do, interested in what surrounds you, interested in what you experience.”
Christi has been featured in numerous publications, juried exhibits and competitions. She has authored eleven how-to books on the subject of creating with polymer clay and has her own line of water-based metallic paints.
You will have soooo much to explore in this workshop! No matter what your skill level, you will end the day with a whole new set of tricks at your fingertips!
Students will explore sculpting with polymer clay to create a butterfly that can be a brooch, pendant or wall piece. You will learn how to form an artful bowl and use powders to decorate it with incised line art. Polymer can mimic stained glass! It’s easy and very addictive – you’ll explore this technique as well. After creating polymer clay sculptural anemones, you’ll use resin to create a delightful tide pool brooch. But wait, there’s more! You will use epoxy clay to combine polymer and range of embellishments to create a small mosaic piece that can be a personal adornment or a decorative embellishment.
All skill levels welcome, no prior experience required.  All materials are provided, just bring your smile!
