Up for a Lesson in Design?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The images featured today were captured just a couple of days ago at sunset. What a joy it was to chase the sun, avoid and seek shadows and best of all, identify line and shape. What a difference an hour at sunset makes to my inspiration and creativity!

I spent yesterday preparing for a digital presentation at the Moose Jaw Museum & Art Gallery which takes place this week on Wednesday. I will be speaking on inspiration and the creative process. If you are in town or live within reasonable driving distance come on over. The presentation begins shortly after noon and finishes just before 1 pm. A suggested donation to the gallery of $ 2 will get you into the auditorium.

While I was preparing for the presentation I seized the opportunity to organize my thoughts and documentation for my one day workshop at the same venue.

Examine, Identify, Compose: Embracing and Understanding the Elements and Principles of Design is offered on Saturday, March 9th, 2013 from 10 a. m. – 3:30 p. m. This short workshop will employ digital presentation, hands-on activities and discussion groups to gain a working understanding of the elements and principles of design. (Bring your digital point-and-shoot camera. )    Cost: $ 40/person             Contact Ross Melansson <> to register.

Please note: The workshop is different from my studio design classes. I can assure you that there is no overlap. If you are interested in getting more comfortable with design and composition this will be a great introduction. Hands-on exercises will ensure that new knowledge is explored and implemented immediately. If you love to learn by doing – this class is for you! Who might benefit from this class? Fiber artists, painters, photographers, anyone with an interested in the arts and creativity.

Email me <> if you have questions. There is still time to register!

    Hi Anna,
    Would love to hear your talk tomorrow. Your photos are really inspirational. Guess you can’t call snow a living form though. Too bad, it would be fun to explore!


    • Hi Gillian, I do believe we can call snow a living form – snow in its initial form is water – water changes depending on conditions. Snow has many forms and changes, it melts, it freezes, it is driven by the wind to forever change into nature’s sculptures… I will argue that snow can be viewed as a living form!

    Your dear friend, Kathy


    • Hi Kathy,
      What can I say – great minds think alike: I am scheduled to teach two one-week design courses in Edmonton from October 28th – November 8th, 2013. Details are on my blog and website calendars!! I was just thinking about you and trying to figure out how to get together during that time!


  4. Wish I could be there. We leave tomorrow for holidays. Donna Sheppard
