Wee Painted Figures NEW!
Sunday, March 11, 11:30-4:30 pm
Instructor: Jone Hallmark
This class with Santa Fe artist Jone Hallmark, which focuses on decorative painting, is a great one even if you’ve never painted before. You’ll use acrylics to decorate a 2-inch wooden doll formand add some small accessories for your sweet girl to hold. Jone will demonstrate how to make the delicate patterns on the dresses with simple lines and dots – easy peasey! For the faces and painted hair, she’ll talk about proper proportions and perspective. What will your small figure hold? A heart? A bird? A miniature toy? A small handmade flower that Jone will show you how to make? There’s time for you to complete two small dolls, maybe even three. The decorated display stand made in Jone’s other class, Arches, Flowers, and More, makes a charming little home for the wee dolls if you’re so inclined.
Join us in the store for Jone’s Trunk Show March 6, Tuesday, 6-8pm.
Please bring the following optional materials for class:
- apron and favorite scissors for fine cutting
- favorite small items (think tiny!) you’d like to add to your doll

Santa Fe artist Jone Hallmark, who says of herself, “I tend to work in a two-inch square!”, has created her own little world of magical delights. Each tiny wonder – from the cleverest fox or hedgehog to a charming parade of flower-bearing young girls – is handcrafted from paper clay, wire, wood, and other tiny bits and pieces. Her sophisticated yet simple designs show the influence of both her father’s Scandinavian heritage and the intricate painted miniatures she collected when living in Switzerland. Her affinity for using small, ordinary objects comes from her mom, also a graphic designer and artist. She taught Jone that you can make just about anything you want instead of going to a store to buy it. Jone’s creative life started on the floor of her father’s studio, where she sat as a child surrounded by brushes, paints, and a treasure of paper. Her passion for design eventually led to work developing store displays, award-winning lines of decorated papers, and the beloved Bryce and Madeline stickers. One day, after twenty years of licensing her artwork for other people’s products, Jone realized that she needed to get back to basics and simplify. In that moment, her tiny little world was born. Now she spends her time teaching, drawing, painting, and making huge messes on every available flat surface. Visit Jone's website: polkadotponie.blogspot.com
