Dala Horse Papier-mâché ONLINE
March 29 @ 5:00 pm
Jelena Todorovich is an artist who has been working as a teacher for 20 years. She will be teaching an online class in papier-mâché during CPS spring break. Over the span of three classes you will learn how to make your own Dala horse out of an old cereal box.
The classes will be held Monday (3/29), Wednesday (3/31) and Friday (4/2) at 5 p.m. via Zoom. You need to attend all three to finish your horse so if you are not able to attend all classes we will provide a video so you can do the step you missed on your own. This class is best for participants 8 years old and up. $45 includes the three lessons as well as the material you will need. The only thing you have to get in addition is an empty cereal box. If you are unable to pick up the material at the Museum we are able to ship it to you at cost but note that depending on when you sign up the materials might arrive after the classes have begun.
Painting is a daily practice for artist and educator Jelena Todorovich. The meditative act of being in the moment and taking on the challenges each day brings with paint is very similar to her Swedish family’s ritual of Fika. Late in the afternoon it is customary to have a cup of coffee and a something comforting like a sugar cookie to reflect on the day and take a moment for yourself. Jelena has been doing this, but rather with paint for the past several years. Her work can be described as using candy colors, and moments of joy in her florals, landscapes and still life paintings.
