As you all know I love taking online arts & crafts classes. I literally could spend 24/7 just doing that.
I have been taking online classes at Artful Gathering since 2012 and have loved every one of the eleven classes I've taken. Each year the selection gets better and better making it almost impossible to decide which class to take. So far I've taken crazy quilting, mixed media art dolls, needle felting, cloth art dolls and paper-clay art doll making classes.
I have to admit I'm a little partial to any classes being offered for doll making and have taken several of those. Four have them have been taught by Hally Levesque who is an exceptional art doll artist and instructor who has a passion for historic, primitive, and mixed media art dolls.
Hally's classes are always filled with historical tidbits, multiple projects, and very detailed instructions on the making of each of the class projects.
The class I took in Session One this year was the 11th class I've taken at Artful Gathering and, once again, it didn't disappoint. It was another of Hally's art doll classes and was for making 3 different kinds of 1900 - 1920 art deco or art nouveau tassel half art dolls.
Hally's classes are always filled with historical tidbits and this class was dedicated to some of the more famous women of the 1900's like Mata Hari, Lillian, Gish and Theda Vamp.
