Primitive folk art takes many forms. In this workshop we will explore two of Karen’s favorites - doll making and primitive painting. What they both have in common is simple naive design. With this in mind our dolls and paintings can be very traditional or have a modern twist - it will be up to you!
In this workshop you will learn primitive doll making techniques and will use your doll as inspiration for your painting. Karen will share her mixed media tips and techniques to create amazing, whimsical faces using a variety of media and her unique approach to character painting. No painting or sewing experience is required. This workshop is for all skill levels.
