Class Experience

Beginner - Advanced Level
This class is taught in English.
I teach a variety of Art classes on Outschool and in person. Many of my classes are Polymer Clay Miniatures, from beginner to intermediate.

All images were sculpted by me, Lori King.

I LOVE to travel and pick up stones and crystals from wherever I go, unique to that part of the globe. I use these findings in class and will occasionally change a theme based on the artifact I brought home. Examples are Lava Rock and black sand from Iceland, Larimar from Punta Cana, etc.
Your choice of sculpting material (I will be using Polymer Bake Clay) in a variety of colors - check the week’s theme
Note: polymer clay in “Translucent” makes great wings and marbling for those translucent gemstones!
Basic sculpting tools, rolling pin
You may use wire or pins if you would like, but we will not be creating a skeleton together.

Some ideas to use:
Any Glass, Metal, Stone, or Crystal findings that you may want to add to your sculpts. Plastic CANNOT be baked! 
Also, Mica Powders make amazing effects for these type of dragons! I use them often :)

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
*If using Polymer clay, parental guidance is required for baking the clay after class.
*Please note that this class occasionally runs 5 minutes late, as I allow students to converse and show each other projects they wish to share afterwards. Students are free to leave at ending time or stay with me in class. This outlet is beneficial to those who enjoy the social aspect.

*If time allows, we will have the opportunity to play a game of Gartic Phone, Time To Climb, Kahoot, or Zoom Draw.
