On May 26th from 6-9pm I will be teaching my first workshop of the year. It is a 3 hour polymer clay sculpture workshop through the West Hills Art League. The workshop will be taught at Robert Morris University.
Polymer clay is such a great medium to safely use in your own home with very little mess. Whether you are a beginner, professional artist or just want a new creative outlet, polymer clay is a great medium to try.
Description: Fundamentals of Sculpting with Polymer Clay
Using polymer clay is a great way to create sculpture safely in your own home. Get a feel for sculpting in polymer clay with this 3 hour class. Learn basic sculpting skills by creating a unique sculpture suited to your style that you can cook in your own oven. The class will cover armatures, clay, texture, texture stamps, cooking, painting and finishing your piece using Amy's personal methods. We will be creating a simple sculpture for you to take home. Unfinished sculptures can be taken home and finished at your leisure. We will explore the materials and forms through demonstrations, lively discussions, and plenty of individual attention. This class is directed at the beginning level student.

Hope to see you in class!
Each year at Robin Hill Park Manor in Moon Township the West Hills Art League has its annual juried show. The opening reception always falls on Mother's Day and is such a wonderful way to spend the afternoon! The event it FREE...yes!
There is a wonderful display and sale of member's art which never disappoints. There are delicious refreshments including nosh and wine, etc (also free - score!). Many of the artists make handmade bookmarks featuring their artwork which are given out to any mom for free! This year will be no different except that music will be added to the event!
Robin Hill Park itself is so picturesque and there are a few different, well marked, hiking trails or you can just have a nice walk around the grounds.
Yesterday I got to help set up the show for this year and it does not disappoint. There are wonderful photographs, oil paintings, acrylic paintings, mixed media art, pottery and sculpture! I will have two sculptures in the show too. Please come out and and bring mom, she'll love it! I hope to see you!
