Italian Leather Mask Making with Leonard Buscemi

Join VAGF members at Expedition Frisco (9073 Berkshire Dr. Frisco, TX 75033) for the monthly meeting. August 9, Tues. 7-9 PM.

Learn about Italian Techniques for creating leather masks for “Comedia del Arte” – an Italian street theater. Learn to create molds using Plaster-craft and then plaster to create each unique character form. Then the process of molding, sewing and dying the leather to complete a custom made mask.

We also will have a mini-critique. Bring a piece of artwork (framing not necessary) and it can even be work-in -progress for a friendly feedback. We will draw for a prize at the meeting for participating artists.

Come join in for a fun, creative night. Members and visitors are welcome.
