Class Details:

Dia de los Muertos is an annual, high-spirited Mexican holiday that literally explodes with color! It celebrates the annual return of the spirits of the departed, and is a time for food, drink, lively music, parties, and activities the spirits enjoyed in life. This colorful little character from Santa Fe artist Jone Hallmark is dressed for the occasion. She’s Jone’s interpretation of Catrina, the iconic symbol of the holiday. Her dress is covered in painted flowers, which are composed of simple lines and dots. The designs are easy to learn from the small booklet Jone provides, even if you’ve never held a paint brush before. Catrina’s smiling skull face is even easier. (Jone made her, so of course she’s smiling!)

Catrina wouldn’t be Catrina without a wildly decorated hat. The one on Jone’s Catrina has a hat covered with miniature flowers. Jone cleverly crafts them from scraps of decorative paper, book pages, small millenary items, and fake flowers she’s taken apart and repurposed. She’s delighted to show you her tricks.  

Part of the fun of working with Jone is learning her ingenious methods and seeing the unusual tools she makes from commonplace objects. Plus, you never know what whimsical touch she might dream up during class!

    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

    Super Sunday

    Great class! Thank you to Jone for her creativity and patience. She is really easy to follow when explaining how to put things all together. Also a big thank you for Two Hands Paperie for having online class for those of us who live too far away to attend in person.

    Loved the class … so great to have a class and be miles apart. You don’t feel you are missing out on anything.
