Hi everyone!

We have two new classes coming up beginning September 29th. Here is the first one, a smaller “introductory” class taught by Chicago artist Megan Hovany. 


“Cardbirds: Intro to Cardboard Relief”
Instructor: Megan Hovany

1-Week Class; 3 Video Lessons

Class Session: September 29 – October 3, 2014

Intro to Cardboard Relief – Online Class! from Silly U on Vimeo.



This introductory class will get you started in making 3D artistic creations out of cardboard, packaging, and paper.

Our project will give you the opportunity to learn and practice the techniques of:

– safe cutting

– papier mâché

– sketching and planning

– layered construction

– creating unique textures

– painting and finishing

We will take you step-by-step through the process of transforming mundane paper packaging into an extraordinary assemblage of form, texture, and tones, as well as adding valuable tools to your mixed-media and collage toolbox.


I can see all kinds of ways I’ll use the techniques from Megan’s class, and hope you will join me! For more information and to sign up, click HERE!
