Oh, the learning.

the studio is coming along quite nicely… bits and bobs of inspiration and creativity are getting tucked up here and there, mice are finding their corners or teacups…

My creation

I am having fun playing and over the next 6-8 weeks I’ll be taking about 6 different classes in various art techniques. Just for me, not for credit. Some of these courses have closed, others are still open. I share them here with you in case you’d like to join in the magic:

Unraveling. An e course with Susannah Conway. This one is all about self-discovery, through the lens of the camera.

Michael de Meng’s Art Laboratory. An e-course with Michael de Meng focusing on color washes and some of his techniques with paint.

Dream Lab at Mondo Beyondo. Another e-course, focused on self exploration and personal growth.

Stretching Within, with Misty Mawn. A 5 week e-course that covers art and mixed media techniques from the basics to some fun new stuff.

Shining a light within seems to be the theme of my own personal winter intersession.

I’m also taking advantage of a couple of archived e-courses that I am sort of dabbling in and exploring at my leisure, as I have time.

Stitched and Stenciled, from Dispatch From LA. Name is fairly explanatory. Stencils, cutting, spray paint, using inks, new techniques.

Write Place, Write Timeis another ecourse that I am doing right now. There were a couple of a ha moments of, “Oh, I never thought to put things together that way.” and techniques I hadn’t thought of yet. There were ideas I could run with. This course would be great for someone just starting out with journaling or scrapbooking.

Locally I’ve got a wire wrapping course, a one day fiber dying and spinning workshop coming up, and tribal bellydancing with Edara starts back up at PCC extension in January. I am going to be really busy, a very exciting growthful, covered in ink and paint, happy sort of busy.

A couple of these photo classes from LK Ludwig are on tap for summer, depending on money and time.

[Day 14 of 30] today I am just grateful for time. The time to explore all of this, all of myself, and take a deep breath.
