-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Beginning with a look at historical monsters from around the world, we see how culturally we tend to demonize the unknown and the other. We develop a safe space to bravely look inward and begin to personify and draw today's monsters. We draw, then transform, the two dimensional into three dimensional shapes. Using chicken wire and recycled trash and lots of courage, the bones of the creatures emerge. Wrapping the creatures in clothes and other soft materials, the monsters develop muscles.  Papier maché gives the monsters their skins.
