In Class

As I mentioned previously, I've got lots going on at the moment - new job, new home (for part of the time), new city, etc. and, to add to the mix, I started an on-line collage course last month. Not entirely sure what I was thinking, but being busy does make one efficient! The 8-week course is The Art of Collage with artist Randel Plowman, he of A Collage a Day and one of my favourite collage books, The Collage Workbook. It's been great for keeping the work going and not trying to over think things too much. Each week is a new exercise, a new approach, a new technique. It's been great and I really recommend it, especially if you are just getting going with collage. (These classes are also great for meeting other artists and connecting with people from different parts of the world.)

Exercise: Transparencies and stamps (I cut the circular stamp and stamped it on tissue paper)
Exercise: Seasons in a series (winter)
Exercise: Seasons in a series (spring)
Exercise: Seasons in a series (summer)
Exercise: Transparencies and stamps

Exercise: Rhythm and Symmetry
Exercise: Line and Shape
Exercise: Line and Shape (this was especially helpful as it made me consider writings as lines)

You have been busy! Terrific collages. is that class an ongoing one you can sign up for at any time? Congrats on your new job (&home&city!).

All very cool. Love the line and shape one.

Thanks you two. They were made over the last month, so it looks more impressive than it really is! And the class is sequential, Pamela, so you have to sign up and then there is a weekly on-line class with the cohort. I think he runs it on a fairly regular basis. I think Randal advertises it here:

Thanks for the info, Adrienne. Hope you get your mail soon. My UK pal has received hers and it was sent the same day (and one thing I sent you was sent earlier).

I'll be home tomorrow, Pamela. Can't wait to see what mail awaits! I got inspired last week and sent you something. Should arrived this coming week, all going well.
