Piñatas with Kate Clark
2-Day Workshop
DAY 1: Saturday, May 9, 2015
DAY 2: Saturday, May 16, 2015


207 N. Broadway St., Suite L
Santa Ana, CA 92701

PLEASE NOTE: This 2-day class will be spaced over two weeks. DAY ONE will be Saturday, May 9th and
DAY TWO will be Saturday, May 16th.

This format will allow the sculptures from the first day to thoroughly dry when the group meets on the following week to finish the work.

Mermaids, politicians, family members, and any other beasts of your choice: come to a two day workshop with artist Kate Clark to learn the arts of custom piñata making. The beauty of working with paper mache and cardboard sculpture is that it is flexible, resourceful, and affordable- yet it can be difficult to elegantly translate your vision into a real life sculptural object. For two days, we will cover the basics of translating sketches to 3-D design, cutting/forming techniques, paper mache processes, and creating a hand mixed paint color palette.

Instructor Kate Clark is a multi-media artist that creates sculptures and performances that mix traditional and experimental processes to inspire social engagement.

She has been working with paper mache for the past 15 years and has made piñatas for people throughout the United States and Europe.
