Online Workshop: Contemporary Papier Mache with Heather Blume

February 13, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

February 13 – February 20 | Saturdays, 10-noon | $135 for members, $150 for non-members

Paper Mache has become increasingly popular among contemporary artists. Why? Because paper is plentiful and working in this medium offers maximum potential for artistic expression . A French term meaning “chewed paper”, the simplest way to make it is to combine paper fragments with wheat paste. In this class we will cover, no pun intended, creating both flat and sculpted artworks, culminating in creating unique “Corona” Paper Mache attire. At this time the majority of us have limited access to expensive art materials and working with Paper Mache is not costly. Materials for this class can be found at your home, at the transfer station (recycled mags or newspaper), the hardware store, or the market. Participants can purchase the ingredients for making wall paper paste from the hardware store or make it at home using the recipe provided when you sign up. We will paint the finished works by using what is easily found, made, or already around. Time will be set aside for showing and sharing the art.

All levels and ages are welcome to join in the fun.

Heather Blume graduated from the University of Florida with a BFA summa cum laude in painting, from the Graduate School of Figurative Art of the New York Academy of Art with an MFA cum laude in sculpture and completed the Advanced Art Appraisal Certificate Program at the Rhode Island School of Design.

Currently she exhibits her artwork on a regular basis. Several of her sculptures have been added to the permanent collections of the Cape Cod Museum of Art, the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, and the Cahoon Museum of American Art. She is also featured in the book, Cape Cod Contemporary Artists, People and Places by Deborah Foreman. Internationally, her works are included in the permanent collections of the British Museum, and the Royal Coin Cabinet of Sweden in Stockholm.
Blume is the recipient of several art awards and grants some of which include the State of Florida, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod. She is a member of the National Association of Women Artists and her work is listed in the registry of the National Museum of Women in the Arts.
In tandem with her studio practice, Blume has been professionally teaching art and giving workshops for over 20 years. Her teaching philosophy is based on combining the fundamentals of western art with intuitive creative processes and her practice focuses on the current import of nature in relation to the human condition.
