In less than a week, I will begin a new exciting teaching position at Whatcom Community College (WCC), in their Community Education program, as an Art Educator for both a Ceramics class & a Mixed-Media art class.
Ceramic Tiles Class February 23rd
A hands-on class of Ceramic Tiles for both beginners and novices in this 4-week course, where you will learn the skills of making grids in clay, design basics, using positive/negative space, and glazes.
Mixed-Media Meets Steampunk Class February 29th
This is a 4 week painting and mixed-media art class at WCC. You'll learn how to transform a blank canvas into a creative work of steampunk altered art with various ways to add texture, layers, and an antiquing technique. (Registration links are below .)
In addition to this new adventure in teaching art, I'm working on new art that involves recycling old pages from books, painting, cutting, and folding with paper crafts into flowers. I also make the flowers to be put into sculpture with textiles, & mixed-media. I've got a few big plans in the works for larger scaled work. Below are a few images of the current ones I've made...
Besides working on new art, I've been happy at home with my partner in life. We have plans this year to travel, be outdoors, and move into a bigger place that suits all our needs. I'm excited to have a bigger space to become my studio, and also to be able to organize my supplies in a much better way than I have been. However, I've learned that I can work on smaller projects that still express my emotions, ideas, and imagination. It's given me a new love for dainty whimsical art that I can share.
