Mass produced, over perfectified, glamorized fashionistas destined for goodwill, thrift shops and dumpsters can be given new life! Learn how to “up-cycle”, alter and embellish Barbie into an interesting, fun, whimsical, and or thought provoking work of art.
It is with malicious joy that many a child has taken scissors to Barbie’s golden mane. That would be just the beginning in the Barbie Redux workshop! The plastic pop culture icon can be re-constructed and held up to a higher standard of representation. As a work of art she may reflect societal issues about the roles that women play, related to gender, beauty, sexual objectification and feminine idealism. Or, she may become a whimsical or surreal creature leaving commercial symbolism behind in favor of a unique, one of a kind, work of art not to be destined for a landfill.
Instructor, Patricia Anders started altering Barbies in 2009 and continues to give new life and meaning to the mass produced object. Her altered dolls have been exhibited and published many times. Having altered nearly a hundred Barbies, she brings a wealth of experience to “playing dolls”.
The Barbie Redux workshop will be held on Nov 9th and Nov 10th (tentative)in conjunction with the Ojai art festival, “Dis-carted”.
