Jeff Ocasio has become an experienced and sought-after masking tape sculpting instructor. His classes welcome artists of all levels, from beginners eager to explore their artistic abilities to experienced artists seeking to embrace a playful and whimsical artistic approach where you will learn the basics of sculpting with masking tape. 
During the 3-hour class, you will be introduced to the techniques of how to layer and manipulate the tape to achieve the desired shape and texture using masking tape, glass stones, and other materials to create your sculpture.  By the end of the class, everyone will have their own unique masking tape sculpture and will have learned a new art form that can be continued to be explored on their own. They will also receive an instructional handout on how to seal and paint their sculptures, on their own, with easy to find materials. Jeff’s teaching style is relaxed, conversational and the classes are limited to a small number of students for personalized attention.
