Artists who applied to become part of the symposium had to submit their project plans and photos. The Todd submission presented methods for using resin art.  Nikolas Kienitz, the instructor liaison for Curious Mondo explains that the project presented in the symposium had to be approachable both for newbies and the more technically advanced participants in resin art.  

Curious Mondo student, Ivonne Hugely, describes her experience as “I love the classes and the enthusiasm of both the instructors as well as the hosts. I love the feeling of community in the chats and the camaraderie and friendships that have  developed while growing as an artist in both skills and confidence. Thank you, Curious Mondo! I especially love the fact that your courses are free while you’re live and filming. It really helps”.

Curious Mondo founder, Shahar Boyayan, explains, “We are Mondo Makers. We live and breathe creativity: we find creative solutions to problems, we bring new ideas to fruition and we are committed to empowering self-expression and cultivating resourcefulness in people and communities. We do this through ART. By making it, preserving it, and carrying on the legacy of different art forms!”

Todd describes her workshop, “I will teach how to create a work of art with resin, how to mix resin, what you can use to tint your resin and safety precautions. Participants will learn doming, casting, coating and so much more. Tips and tricks will be offered throughout the class and She will go over techniques and applications for resin. Even if you’ve never used resin, alcohol inks or acrylic paints, everything you need to know is covered in the class to get you started and ‘embrace your  creativity’.
