Are You Ready to Explore Creating Clay Faces in a Variety of Ways?  Do You Want to Learn How to Give Your Clay Face a "Face-Lift"?


Join Kathy Lewis, aka KJ Allison in LITTLE BOWL OF BEINGS!  The focus of this course is to learn how to create clay faces using varied techniques with air dry clay.   Throughout our lessons we will experience techniques such as using molds, creating faces inspired by other artists' work, and even giving clay faces a "face-lift"! There is peace and a joy that I experience when working with clay. I am excited to share the methods both learned and developed so that you may experience the wonder of using paper clay in an intuitive way!

This course consists of five main lessons, where you will learn how to create five different clay faces!  The first lesson will show you how I create a face from a mold!  I love to use molds, and there are many different affordable molds available to you!  You will learn how to take a molded face and change it!  I will also show you how to create a face from a hemisphere.  Learn how to alter this shape to make a charming character.  Painting it will  reveal a wonderful personality!  We will let loose and create a wildly wonderful distorted sculpted face. Eyes can be of different sizes, ears can be huge (or only ONE), exaggerate the size of the mouth, and more. Use a unique color palette.  Don't forget, I will also show you how to give your clay face a "face-lift"!  I can't wait for this!  This course is full of fun and varied techniques on sculpting and painting faces so that you can create your very own, unique BOWL OF BEINGS!




I began taking online art classes, met Kara Strachan Bullock, and took almost all of the workshops she hosted at her local studio. I was in heaven to have this new friend and later her wonderful studio located less than 20 minutes from home! I also continued online courses and one had a particularly awesome affect on my art journey. It was taught by Jeanne-Marie Webb called "the soulbearers". I would never in a million years have expected to fall in love with sculpting clay! When working with clay I felt peace and joy unlike anything ever before experienced. I have not put it down in four years and continue to find great pleasure in creating with clay. It is my 'go to' art medium. I create purely from the heart having had no formal sculpting education and somehow I am afraid to pursue the art of sculpting in a formal way because I am afraid it would ruin the freedom with which I create. I hope to spread the joy of creating in clay, something that young and old, beginner and experienced can enjoy. I hope you can experience the feeling i heard in my granddaughter's comment recently when she said, "Grandma, I am so happy making this (clay sculpture). It is the most wonderful thing I have ever made."



This course will have a private Facebook group just for you!  This course is a self-study, so the teacher may or may not be active in the group.  However, students still sign up and you can see past and present work and comments.

Below is a list of the supplies that I will be using for the projects in this course.  This list may appear long but you will have most of the items around the house and will only need to order a few things.  




  • Permanent (waterproof) fine liner in size 0.2 or 0.5 or similar. I use UniPen but there are many other good brands
  • Paint, any acrylic paint you like. I use golden in these colors:
    • Titanium White
    • Titan Buff
    • Red Oxide,
    • Raw Umber,
    • Payne’s Gray,
    • Yellow Oxide or Yellow Ochre,
    • Iridescent Bronze (fine),
    • Mars Yellow
    • Black
    • I am using shading gray (Golden High Flow Acrylic) a lot lately!

***Your paint can be heavy body or fluid but be sure you at least have white and black in fluid. A new color that I seem to use in EVERYTHING is Matisse Australian Ghost Gum, and I am also loving Jo Sonja’s olive and vermillion. These are the colors I am using but you do not need to get them all. Just use what you have.

Paint Brushes:

  • Paint Brushes - Blick Scholastic brushes are cheap and work well, include detail and mid size. Here are some I like:

Other Supplies:

Optional: if you would like to collage papers on the faces you will want a little light weight paper as in book pages, tissue or napkins and some matte medium to glue to the clay (also seals it).

    This class is a must on so many levels. Kathy has an easy style of teaching, taking you step by step with clear and concise instruction. Kathy is very generous sharing her varied techniques as well as resources, advising what materials have worked best for her. But most remarkable is the sense of absolute joy and positive support she gives. Her passion for her art shows in her exuberance and talent. I loved this class.

  2. Deb Weiers

    I have to say this is one of the BEST classes I have taken online. Kathy (Kj) does such a wonderful job in every single lesson. I absolutely loved it!!!

    A totally fun class. Lots of good information and inspiration.

    “Little Bowl of Beings” was the second class I’ve taken from Kathy Lewis. Kathy’s creativity level is off the charts and she is blessed with the ability to teach while maintaining a sense of humor and thoroughly enjoying herself! The class was so much fun and chock full of inspiring ideas! The community of artists who took her class have become wonderfully, supportive friends. I’ve sculpted with air-dry clay since 2016 and Kathy STILL taught me new “tricks of the trade”. I can’t wait to see what she will come up with for her next class…I will be right there signing up!

    Kathy’s class was my first time working with this medium and I fell in love with paper clay. Kathy’s instruction style was easy to follow and her love for clay and her enthusiasm to create makes this class so enjoyable.

    The Facebook group is awesome with everyone sharing new ideas and Kathy continues to encourage us all. She is an Extremely creative instructor and you can’t help but catch her enthusiasm for paper clay with this class.

  6. Susan (verified owner)

    This was an amazing and fun class! Saw Kathy’s “beings” and I knew instantly I wanted to learn how to make them. Through the magic of her instruction and my clay, some molds, and paints I was able to create my own “beings”; each of which has a different personality in addition to being very colorful! This was probably the most fun class I have taken (and I have taken MANY), and I will absolutely continue this process— I already have more clay and plenty of paint!!

    kJ Allison does wonderful thigs with air dry clay and she is so very generous with her hard earned knowledge. Her fb group for students is a kind place to share your work, ideas and questions. The fee for her Fat and Happy Birds class is well worth it…I’m sure any of her classes would be great fun and full of ideas.
