My Adventure at Art Unraveled
Having said all that, I will report that my experience was not remarkable. The class was very short, long lunch break and no matter who is teaching, there is only enough time to scratch the surface. However, much is gained to share a Sunday with like minded kindred spirits who all "get it". That, my friend, is priceless. I question the high cost of the classes, in addition to "instructor fees for supplies" as well as "registration fees". Really? For what, exactly. I say, "build it into the cost of the workshop". Lessens the pain.
I had a great day. This was a class where we painted canvas, cotton and muslin and tore and cut them up into pieces, painted them with acrylics, lettered on them and arranged with found objects, do-dads, fibers and more. Here's my work in progress. Will continue to color and paint my pieces and delve into my soulful list.
