Art on Your Wall

Ever wanted to try a piece of art from a distance? Without putting a hole in your walls? Or quickly compare a couple of pieces for the same area?
We’ve got you covered! Here’s the step-by-step guide to hassle-free digital hanging!

How to Guide

STEP ONE:

Choose your favorite piece from our gallery.

STEP TWO

Find an empty wall in your home. Take a photo of the space (the higher the resolution the better!) with an 8.5×11 piece of paper taped to it. (We use the paper to properly scale the painting to your space)

STEP THREE

We’ll take it from here! Just let us know which piece(s) you’re interested in, send us the picture of your wall and we will digitally “hang” the piece(s) in place. You no longer need to imagine, you’ll be able to see exactly how the piece(s) will look on our wall!

Easily swipe through several paintings hung on your walls to find the perfect fit! If you’d like a collage, or a few different suggestions, we’ll be more than happy to oblige. Contact an associate today!

Workshop Materials List

1. Clay – Chavant Le Beau Touche. Get the regular clay, not HM (high melt).
2. Clay warming devices, a metal bucket with a clamp on heat lamp or 100 W bulb works great.
3. Tie wire.
4. Aluminum foil.
5. Scissors.
6. Favorite sculpture tools.
7. Plank of wood (pine) approximately 8″ x 8″ x 2″.
Bring as many planks as you wish…the wood is used as the base for your sculpture.
8. Plumber’s pipe, 1/2″ threaded: Bring several different lengths…up to 10″…not PVC pipe.
Plumber’s pipe T joint.
Plumber’s pipe couplers.
Plumber’s pipe flange.
9. Screws and screwdriver to secure the flange to wood…this may be done before you arrive. (Place flange in the center of plank)
10. Wire cutters
11. Needle nose pliers
12. Rubber mallet.
13. Spatula
14. Measuring devices such as rulers, measuring tape, dividers, and calipers.
15. Because we concentrate on BIRDS IN FLIGHT, live models in the classroom are more distracting than useful. I will demonstrate the technique of constructing a cantilevered bird armature that can be used for many different bird species and will show you how to assemble shapes to capture the “gist” of the specific bird.
16. Bird field guides such as Peterson, Stokes, Golden, or Sibley. Sibley’s Guide to Birds (not Sibley’s Guide to Bird Life and Behavior) is best if bringing only one field guide. This popular book can usually be purchased at any bookstore.
17. Bring your laptop to the class if possible.
18. Bring your sketchbook.
