What you'll learn in this collage class:

Let's make some monsters!


I illustrated a bunch of monster face parts (eyeballs, noses, ears, mouths, horns and some additional accessories), I will have some 12" x 12" canvases, glue, googly eyes, paint, colored pencils, and paint markers; you will make crazy original weird art by swirling a painted vortex on the canvas, then collaging all the monster face parts together to make your very own unique one of a kind monster portrait!

No major artistic talent is required, just an open mind ready to make something fun! However, if you prefer to draw your own monster face parts (or create a combination of my drawings and your drawings), I will have some blank paper and colored pencils at the ready.


  • STEP 01: You will prepare your monsters demonic vortex by moistening the canvas, drizzling some acrylic paint and swirling it around like the proper mad scientist you really want to be.
  • STEP 02: While your canvas dries, you will pick out your monster face parts, cut them out and loosely compose your monster design. During this time I will also help expedite the drying process with my magical hot air producing blasters (AKA a hairdryer)
  • STEP 03: Once your magical monster vortex is bone dry, we will begin our glue party! In this step, clear nontoxic Elmers glue will be your weapon of choice. Glue everywhere! Layering the monster parts until your monster comes alive on the canvas!
  • STEP 04: The final beastie must now dry in order to be ready to come home with you, so now will be the time for you to go explore the rest of the market, grab a beer from the brewery around the corner, get some roast nuts, a cake pop and maybe even spend some time shopping from some of the amazing arts and crafts vendors around the market. As an official weird art monster maker, you will be entitled to 15% off anything you want from Embrace the Weird! (Offer only valid during the day of your workshop).

Let's embrace our inner mad scientist together and make monsters!

Please RSVP & get your tickets ASAP (supplies and space are limited), so I can be sure to have enough canvases & face parts for everyone.

I truly hope to see you there!

Recommended for ages 10 and up (Class requires cutting lots of little pieces of paper and ton of patience)

The class is held at Embrace the Weird inside Crafted at the Port of LA - the South Bays premiere arts and crafts experience center and marketplace. Come early or stay after to explore 30+ studios, galleries, hand-made shops and enjoy an adult beverage at our onsite craft brewery!
