Carnival is a local tradition in Provincetown every summer. This year the theme is Gods and Goddesses. This class will help you develop your ideas to transform a sculpture or costume in to your favorite deity.
Day one we will look at imagery to stimulate ideas, so bring your iPhone or iPad if you have one. Next we will construct forms by up cycling materials such as cardboard, milk jugs, plastic bottles and styrofoam. If you have interesting trash bring it. Once things have been constructed with tape we will paper mache forms. Then the fun begins with paint, glitter and fabric other materials to bring your deity to life. Masks, chest plates, head gear and other body parts are all possibilities to decorate and transform you into your favorite god or goddess. Strut your stuff at carnival or just keep your deity costume in your home to evoke the power of your choice when ever you feel inspired. Either way this class will be a magical mystery tour into another realm of fun.
