Inside the Box
An Online Course
with Sharon Payne Bolton
In this self-paced course, you will create your very own Artist Box using book board and paper. Sharon's hope for this course is that you can overcome the concerns you may have about perfectionism and being intimidated about measuring. (box measures approximately 4" x 3") Sharon has designed this course so that you don't have to worry about precision, she has pre-done that for you. You also don’t need to worry about whether the box is perfectly square or whether the paper is precisely lined up. She has designed this course so that you don’t need use a ruler to create your box. You will be creating a vessel and it does not have to be perfect. In allowing this vessel to form whichever way the paper or boards come together, this box will become what it is meant to be. Sharon doesn't just want to show you how to make this Artist’s Box, she wants to spark your creativity by teaching you some new techniques and giving you the opportunity to exercise your own strengths. In addition to creating your Artist Box, this course includes mold making, quick curing resin and use of Apoxie Sculpt Clay.
All patterns are "lifetime" available as a download and pre-cut book board parts can also be found in Sharon's online shop.
