Alpine Village NEW! In-Store Class 
Saturday, September 23, 10:30am-4:30pm 
Instructor: Jone Hallmark
Limit: 7 students. All participants must be 15 years or older. 

Class Details:

Santa Fe artist Jone Hallmark keeps coming up with clever ways to create little houses! Her newest ones make up a little alpine village that’s complete with trees and, of course, mushrooms. One of the homes has a tiny surprise cleverly hidden out of sight, and there’s even a whiff of smoke coming from the chimney. Her village is a warm, welcoming, and happy place!

Join Jone for a fun day of learning how to “build” the small houses from bits of wood and how to paint them with folk art patterns. The patterns, which require only a few simple brush strokes, are easy to create from the hand drawn booklet Jone provides. Copy them or use them as inspiration to create your own. As you might guess, her designs for drawing the doors, windows, and roofs are wonderfully whimsical.

At the end of class, your alpine village is all set to welcome Heidi and and her grandfather. (Is that a yodel we hear faintly in the distance . . . ?)

    Instructor Bio

    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 Instagram: @jonehallmark
