About the course

Dragons are the most popular fantasy creature ever! and, in this course, you will learn to make your own! We’ll be going through the whole process: from making the armature, building the core body and sculpting the entire figure in polymer clay. I will take topics such as anatomy, how to make scales, wings, mixed media techniques, basic painting and more. Recommended for all skills levels. If you are a beginner this may help you find your way into making animals and creatures, as it can be less challenging than making human figures. If you are an Artist and have experience making human figure this will be a great addition to your learning skills.

About the instructor

Noemi Smith

I am a student and a lover of the Arts since I was a little girl. I started my art career by drawing and painting just as a hobby. I was a student of Technical design and worked for several years doing ACAD Computer Technical Drawings in my country Peru. I never had the opportunity to show my Artistic skills, until I came to live in the United States in 2005. That is when I started making figurines in Cold Porcelain and also when I found Polymer Clay. I was so amazed with the art of doll making. I fell in love with! I started making figurines in Cold Porcelain; a type of clay used for modeling in South America. As for my language, it was easier for me to learn from what I found online, even how to make my own clay (because this clay isn’t for sale in the USA). Later on... well I learned English of course! That is when I found out about Polymer Clay, I was so amazed with the Art of Doll making... I fell in love with it! I started researching about it, learning from videos online, collecting information from here and there. I became a self-taught Artist. My inspiration is the female figure as well as children and animals. I started sharing my knowledge with new beginners, especially my Hispanic fellows, in this wonderful world of Doll making.
Nowadays started making something more than dolls as was captivated with fantasy characters and creatures, and still constantly strive to improve my skills. I'm able to work in different mediums such as clay, polymer clay, fabrics, yarn, wool, anything that can get my hands on!
