Oceans Video Master Class
This eight-week journey (which may just turn into a life-long quest!) will allow you to explore your curiosity, sharpen your technical skills and push your own creative boundaries. It is intended for experienced readers looking to foster their own creativity while refining their craftsmanship. Detailed instructions are provided for each of the 25 ocean forms covered in this workshop, but what you do with them is up to you. In addition to the technical "how to" of building ocean forms, time will be devoted to discussion about finding inspiration and how to foster the creativity required to make your own unique art.

What's included:
Eight weeks of video workshops accompanied by detailed, full color, step-by-step instructions and bead kits to make a sampler of each of the twenty-five different ocean forms featured in the workshop.

Each week a new video will become available which coordinates with the printed instructions. Here's the syllabus:

Week 1: Begin Your Quest
This first week will be devoted to a discussion about inspiration, where to go to get ideas and what to look for when examine ocean forms.

After week 1, there will be an optional 1 hour small group zoom session to discuss inspiration.

Week 2: seaweed, sponges and coral

Week 3: phylum Echinodermata (starfish, sand dollars, etc.)

Week 4: phylum Cnidaria (jellyfish and anemones)

Week 5: phylum Mollusca (sea shells, nudibranchs, nautilus, squid and more)

Week 6: phylum Arthropoda (shrimp, crabs, and lobsters)

Week 7: mythical sea creatures

Week 8: Bringing it Together into a Design

After week 8, there will be an optional 1 hour small group zoom session to discuss creativity.
