« back to classes page
Even today, pocket-sized paintings continue to hold allure. Enjoy this introduction to the fascinating history of miniature art, from 7th-century illuminated manuscripts to 15th-century portraiture, and create your own small art pieces. Working from sample ideas or your own designs, students will create miniature painting pendants complete with frame and chain. These fun little specialties can be anything: a loved one’s silhouette, a family crest, a favorite flower, a boat, a color abstract, or whatever your heart desires. There will be demonstrations and discussions on the various materials used, as well as subjects, symbolism, and technique. In this fun and creative class, you will complete a winning piece you may wear or display with pride. Students of all skill levels are welcome. Beginner to advanced.
