WORKSHOP “Our Sacred Heart” with Clarissa Callesen

Each and every one of us has a heart that is sacred. A heart that loves, cherishes, protects, and hurts. Join me in creating an assemblage shrine to our beautiful and perfectly flawed hearts. We will be covering lots of techniques to alter and age new wood. We will cover the myriad of different ways to connect objects for assemblages. Through sculpting, painting, and distressing you will take everyday objects and turn them into a beautiful reliquary to your heart. I believe in embracing the grunge and cherishing the haphazard. This is both a project and technique based class which you will leave witha unique piece of art as well as skills useful for many different projects.

BIO: Clarissa is the creator of Strange and Wonderful Things, which is truly the best description of her work. She is the rescuer of tacky dolls and forgotten trash, with lots of laughter, hard work, and magic those items are reborn. Through her eclectic, mysterious, and surreal work she tells stories about the joy and tribulations that is the human experience. Clarissa teaching style is down to earth and fun, believing there is always more than one solution to a problem. Embracing the grunge and cherishing the mistakes are two of her primary philosophies. Clarissa brings her diverse experiences as a tattoo artist, functional potter, and gallery owner to teaching and sharing her true love the world of Mixed Media art. She exhibits throughout the Pacific Northwest at art festivals and selective galleries. She has been published in Linda and Opie O’Brien’s book, Who’s Your DADA? Written several feature articles for Art Doll Quarterly, and has been published multiple times in Somerset Studio. For more information, check out her blog at  http://clarissacallesen.blogspot.com/
