March 17, 2024

Location: CMA


You may have seen the Cloud Buddies in the Wonder Room, and now you have a chance to paint your own with artist Dana Lynn Harper!

This is a make and take event; participants get to choose the Cloud Buddy they want to work on and are welcome to paint their buddies in any way they like. Acrylic paint, brushes and clear sealant will be provided. Each figure is approximately 2" x 3" x 2.5", made of hydrostone plaster. Children, adults, and people of all ages are welcome to participate in the workshop. You are welcome to stay for as little or as long as you want during the event hours. Most participants take about an hour to paint their Cloud Buddies.

Timed tickets are available for two 2-hour time slots from 12:00–2:00 PM and 2:00–4:00 PM. Tickets are $20 for members and $25 for nonmembers.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
I'm a Columbus, OH native and have been creating art full time for the past twelve years. I primarily make large installations that are inspired by nature, magic and fantasy. I have exhibited my work nationally with solo exhibitions across the country. Teaching is a way for me to connect with my community. I currently teach at CCAD and in the past I have taught at Penn State University, The Cultural Arts Center, The McConnell Arts Center as well as elementary and high schools in Columbus. I started creating Cloud Buddies during my residency at Women's Studio Workshop in spring 2014. Cloud Buddies were inspired by The Women's March on Washington, they are soldiers in a "love army," providing the world with joy and happiness.
