“Attitude is the mind’s paintbrush; it can color any situation.” Unknown
It’s that time of the year: January marks the beginning of the design workshop in my studio. The weather cooperated: Friday and Saturday saw two separate groups of enthusiastic students claim the space in the studio.
Recognizing line, shape and understanding value were on the agenda, or more correctly, the curriculum. We employed design forks to isolate and select, traced lines and shapes, used shading to introduce value and in the end introduced color back to put smiles on everyone’s face… Each afternoon groups of tired students left with homework lists decrypted and ideas swirling in their heads.
Two very diverse groups have embarked on a journey into design – I can’t wait to see what everyone comes back with for their tutorials in February.
