Smoosh! With Scott Tripp
Smoosh sculptures have a distinctive look- Simple, clean, efficient, and impossibly cute. Working with primarily round balloons also makes these sculptures more relatable and more interesting to the average person- The Smoosh concept reimagines round balloons as building blocks, making these sculptures a simple matter of combining parts to build anything you can imagine! ISmoosh Critters has changed the way I twist and the way I approach balloon sculpting in general. And I hope it can do the same for you!

Disrupt! With Scott Tripp
(an introduction)- A disruption is a sudden event the breaks an established pattern, shattering what is considered normal. Many of the designs shown in this class would fall under the category of “Multi- Media” balloon sculptures, or sculptures with non-balloon elements or add-ons. We’ll discuss what makes these sculptures work, and why they are more powerful and memorable than the average bal- loon sculpture. . Small innovations begat small steps forward, but a disruption can ignite a giant leap.

Quick Link with Sam Cremeens
Critters Quick, cute, and easy, AND Real World Tested! These little critters make the most of the versatility of linking balloons to create adorable characters that are PERFECT for bracelets, hair- bands, or candy cups!

A Few Of My Favorite Things with Sam Cremeens
Sometimes, I just get bored with doing the same design over and over and over and over… So I came up with these particular designs just to change things up a bit! All of these came from re- quests in my weekly restaurant work! Twister tested, kid approved!
