The spark was first ignited last June when I announced an Advanced Design class. We had to wait for a bitterly cold day in January 2014 to fan the fires of creativity. The mercury had dropped to – 24 C and the sun was shining. One by one cars pulled into the drive way. By 10 a. m. ten eager participants had claimed their seats.
It was a day to review, sketch, draw and color. We began by sketching a still life of glass containers. Eventually students shared which artist or architect they chose for the study. As the instructor I am so excited to hear about a diverse selection of topics. I can hardly wait to see where the journey will take everyone.
I will not give away more details. Check back in early February for more images and individual work.
Thanks to everyone who braved the cold and gathered in my studio for this wonderful creative exchange! Welcome back designers.
