A daily dose of collage creativity, in images, words and thoughts. Always remember, "Everything will be alright in the end...if it is not alright it must not be the End"

Second Class of Artistic Conversations-Visual Art Journaling...

 Pat's journal
 Bea's journal
 Caroline's Journal
 Jane's journal
 Joan's journal
 Kate's journal
 Linda's Journal
and Liz's Journal


We are heading into our second day of class today...I'm excited to see how everyone did and I sent them home with three gum erasers to carve, can't wait to see what everyone did.  I had them carve a few samples before they left for class so they could get a feel for it. I had them write on one page and then do a wash with watercolors and another page lays on top but they used three color pencils to scribble and swirl around and then cut out shape.  Then using the page with the cut outs as a stencil for the spread...kind of confusing but lended itself to new angles and possibilities...pushing the creative limits and our minds... After that I let them go and explore their own creative voices.
