January 15, 2025 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

1-day class fee: $65 / $52 annual donors
Supply fee: $10 per student
payable to instructor for all supplies provided.  

This class welcomes artists of all levels, from beginners eager to explore their artistic abilities to experienced artists seeking to embrace a playful and whimsical artistic approach where they will learn the basics of sculpting with masking tape.

Jeff’s teaching style is relaxed, conversational, and the class is limited to only eight students for personalized attention. Join us for one or more sessions for a creative experience of masking tape sculpting, learning new techniques and transforming simple materials into works of art.

By the end of each class, you’ll walk away with your very own unique sculpture, embodying the simplicity and joy of folk art, and an instructional handout on how to seal and paint your sculpture at home with easy-to-find materials. 

The Birds – Create charming, free-standing bird sculptures with a delightful, playful style. All workshops begin with a glass bottle project, allowing Jeff to go over the basic techniques of sculpting with masking tape and give students the opportunity to create a free-style sculpted design on the bottles that can later be displayed as a bud vase. After mastering these basics, students will move on to learn the building blocks of creative bird sculpting with masking tape, paper, wire, and glass marbles for the eyes. Bird sculpture stands approximately 5 inches tall and 6 inches long from beak to tail. 

The class will meet at 900 Dunlop Road, Sanibel.
