Making Faces!

Yesterday I taught a couple of classes where the students focused on creating faces. First, young artists made faces with realistic pictures of human faces. But then they altered the faces by cutting up and reassembling parts. Secondly, each person made a face flag, on a felt flag with a knitting needle hanger. We used a variety of materials and lots of imagination. Thanks to the Flint Institute of Arts Art School for being a great host! https://flintarts.org/learn/news

10 young artists explored making books yesterday in my class at the Flint Institute of Arts Art School https://flintarts.org/uploads/images/Fall21.pdf They worked with folding paper, writing stories, creating scrolls, and more. What a creative and enthusiastic group of artists!

Index-Card-A-Day 2021

I am having a grand time with ICAD 2021, hosted by Tammy Garcia of Daisy Yellow Art. Participants create with index cards, 3X5″ – 4X6″, from June 1-July 31 (https://daisyyellowart.com/icad-base). This is a fantastic annual event and I really love to join in the fun! I am using drawing and collage but anything is possible and doable. It is exciting to see all of the delightful interpretations from everyone involved–WOW!
