Wildlife of Iceland DRAWING AND PAINTING

Whether on land, in the air, or under water, the animals of Iceland are very beautiful and unique to the habitat of this North Atlantic ocean island. Learn about puffins, Arctic foxes, the hearty Icelandic horses, and whales as you draw and paint each animal in its habitat working with artist Karen Anderson.

I Felt Creative FELTING

Icelanders have farmed sheep for centuries. The wool and meat of the Icelandic sheep has been essential to the survival of Icelandic people especially during the harsh, cold winters. Work with artist Anne Sawyer to learn the art of felting using wool as you create an animal or hidden person using this technique.

The Hidden People of Iceland TOY THEATER

In the long winter nights in Iceland, storytelling has been the primary entertainment for people. Learn about the “hidden people”, the elves, trolls and others, who live inside the hills, cliffs, and volcanic boulders of Iceland through storytelling. Then use your imagination to
create your own toy theater and hidden people characters with artist Julie Boada to retell your favorite Icelandic folktale.

Classes held at:
Open Eye Theater
Studio, 512 E. 24th St.,
Minneapolis,
MN 55404
