Wow- one day into this class and I am tired. I think it will be alot of work, but I also think it will be worthwhile. The class is called the “Artist’s Toolbox”. Our first class is about texture, shape and line. We had to do some sketching and then work with cloth. The cloth exercises are done by gluing them into a sketchbook- no sewing required. But now my sketch book won’t lie flat…
The texture cloth exercise was fun- I had about 8 white fabrics(silks, linen, bamboo and cotton) and used them to make a little picture. Not sure if this is what I was supposed to do….we were instructed to design according to texture only. Oops! I might do another one and keep it more abstract.
There are 2 or 3 more cloth exercises to do. Hopefully I will get them done before the next class starts.
I am really impressed with our instructor- she looks at each post and image uploaded and makes encouraging/helpful comments on them all -that is alot of work!
