CLASS DESCRIPTION

Doll Painting by Goose Grease is an engaging and creative class that teaches children the age-old art of painting wooden dolls which make for perfect Valentine's Day gifts. Students will be taught to create miniature wooden portraits of their favorite characters, including Mommy, Daddy and friends! Doll painting enhances hand-eye coordination and motor skills, freeing the imagination to create little people a child can play with at home. Goose Grease peg dolls are brought from Bogotá, Colombia via a fair trade agreement with a small carpentry shop.

**This is an adult participation class. One parent or caregiver can participate with up to two children.
 

Hi, my name is Anna Leigh Donado and I am the owner and Artistic Director of Goose Grease (goosegreaseshop.com). Goose Grease specializes in hand-painted wooden peg dolls, which can be found in boutiques around the world. We train and employ artisans to create our standard designs. We also have a custom shop where we create personalized dolls, mostly family portraits and wedding cake toppers. As of lately, teaching children has become another branch of our company, hosting our first ever Summer Camp and After-school program with friends. I am also the mother of two and a wife.
