Our local hospital has a wonderful support group for breast cancer survivors and their families and one of the things they've been able to do is offer art classes for the patients and their families. Well this year they've also been able to find the funds to offer some classes for the hospital staff and I'll be one of the instructors. I've taught a form of dotee doll in previous sessions but this year decided I'd like to teach an improvisational felt heart that can be worn as a pin/pendant or just hung from a ribbon as an ornament or small wall hanging. I've only made a couple of examples, because I want each heart to be special to each student. Improvisation is probably one of the hardest things to teach but one of the most rewarding to the students so I'm really looking forward to the class.
Here are the two samples...I tried to make them quite different to give them some idea of the range of possibilities in improv! Also, the class is only two hours, so I couldn't get too carried away.
