What a month April has been! Continuing with the daily Artlets proved not as easy as I had anticipated – it took serious focus and commitment: April marked the beginning of my “travel to teach” schedule with trips to Winnipeg, Medicine Hat and Saskatoon. Not only did I have to pack my personal suitcase it also involved preparing kits, handouts and various supplies. I traveled by plane, by bus and by car and each takes special consideration.
The Artlets this month reflect my lack of focus. I decided to pack light with my fountain drawing pen, along with a few pencil crayons. The biggest obstacle to overcome was finding a quiet place and a few short minutes to focus long enough to put some lines on the pre-painted tag… While the Artlets are less complex I am happy that I persevered and can look back on 1/4 of the year of completed Artlets without missing a day!
April also saw my design students return to my studio classroom for a brief session of sharing and consultation. I took quite a few photos and will follow up with a post later this week.
A new computer added interest and the transfer of files took a little longer than anticipated. It appears I am up and running (almost) flawlessly… I have to source a new version of Photoshop Elements!
Artlets for May will continue – I am debating between inspirational quotes and collage… Check back in early June to find out which path I will choose!
