Whimsical ATC Dolls with Linda Edkins Wyatt
Thursday, December 6th from 7:15PM - 9:30PM
Get in touch with your inner child by creating a Whimsical ATC Doll! The Whimsical ATC Doll class will introduce students to a variation of Artist Trading Cards (ATCs). Articulated paper dolls will be constructed using a 2.5” x 3.5” ATC as a base. Arms, legs, a head and wings will be attached to the ATC with mini brads. The rotating parts will allow the dolls to fold up and fit in a standard ATC pocket, but when parts are rotated and opened, the doll will extend to approximately 4” x 9”. These delightful ATC dolls are fun for all ages and skill levels, and can also be a special gift or decoration for holidays.
