You Know It’s a Good Art Day When…

I’m having the most awesome week! I’m taking a five-day (that’s 5 whole days) workshop with artist Fran Skiles at QSDS (Quilt Surface Design Symposium). It has nothing to do with quilts but a whole lot to do with art, layering, collage, surface design and creative mess making 🙂

We started out with mark making on canvas. It turns out there are a lot of ways to make marks.

Just a few include seaming, stitching (machine and hand), ink, paint, egg beaters, and iron scorching. Yes Mom, I did it on purpose 😉  It smelled like I was burning down the building but I got some really nice marks.

We then graduated to making elements for collage work – my all time favorite (well, so far) was the print making.

I could have played with this alone all week! And just let me say now that there has been a lot of Gesso involved in this class.

So, you know it was a good art day when? You have to clean Gesso off your iPad screen.
