Learn to make Santos dolls….

I am excited to announce that I am going to be one of the teaching artists in Jeanne Oliver’s e-course, Creatively Made! I’ve gotten quite a few e-mails about my Santos dolls, and it’s just been so crazy busy with the holidays that I haven’t had a chance to make any, let alone list them. But, as  a part of Jeanne’s class; I am going to be showing you the entire process, top to bottom, and all of my secrets in making these  beautiful and soulful girls.

Jeanne also has many other amazing artist’s featured in her 4 week class.
Here are a few things Jeanne has to say  about her class:

“We will cover mixed media, journal making, journal techniques, collage, leather and metal stamping, charcoal drawing, image transfers and much more.
I  even have a special guest artist that will teach how to make Santos dolls (hee hee… me!).  All of the art techniques taught will go along with the course and will make the whole experience even more meaningful and fun!
There will also be fun studio tours to encourage you to make space for yourself and your gifts.
There will also be inspiring videos from many of the creative women in my life that share bits of their heart and their journey to embracing the gifts that they have.”
