October is a great month for "open studio" art classes. Why? Because Halloween art is exciting and super fun to make!
Everyone either has great ideas for making their own Halloween-themed art OR is looking for spooky art-making ideas and opportunities.
Our job is to provide a place, supplies, materials, and inspiration. Our students do the rest, because they are the artists and this is their studio.
This week many of our artists worked on Halloween Inchies, one of our favorite Halloween projects.
These are tiny, 4" x 4" mini-masterpieces that are fun to design and even more fun to make!
This artist learned how to blend acrylic paint colors and add an oil pastel "web" over the dried paint for his 3-D spider.
Oil pastels are a popular medium for spooky nighttime scenes (on black paper).

|This artist traced the shape of dinosaur toys to create these realistic drawings. |
(Of course, the Halloween-theme isn't required in Open Studio.)
