26/365: Student Experiments: Dominant and Subordinate

So today was the first day of 3d Design Class. These students have never made anything three dimensional; all their art experience is drawing and painting. I tasked them with bringing in things from home and/or using what they found in the classroom and experimenting with what it was like to make three dimensional drawings; to attach materials together to make something that might stand up or take up space.. They were to have either Line, Plane, or Volume be dominant

There are still openings for my Workshop Scheduled at Pro Chemical and Dye July 8-12.

We will look at resist techniques on protein fibers and learn to use acid dyes. Whether you are a weaver, felter, spinner, or dyer, you will get something great from this workshop! If you are a beginner, you will come away knowing how to use the dyes, if you are advanced, we will do in depth work. Something for everyone.

Summer Workshop

12 of 12 January 2011

The sun is just rising on the new day, on the frozen landscape Studio ready for the next day of work, sun coming in at eight am Biscuits and gravy for breakfast, they feed everyone quite heartily here, especially the blacksmiths! I am showing the students how to do a monoprint on a screen Today I visited the bread baking studio next door. They give us samples every day. Today they were doing sourdough. This is their wood fired oven. The samples on the line, freezing in the snow. They were very smelly. I took a walk to visit some of the other studios today, giving my students some requested work time to process all the new information. This is the painting studio. Glad for my LL Bean sheepskin boots in the mud and snow! Finally get to use my New England gear. After classes were over, went to the blacksmith forge and watched the smith forge a knife. He made it out of an old file. Then on the way to supper stopped and saw the dollmakers. They were working on hands today. The sun went down as I walked to supper.  After supper, more studio, and now I am uploading these in the library before I go to bed, I will be in bed by ten I hope!

12 of 12 for November 2010

Before dawn, at five, up for the day. Practicing making the bed when I get up. Here is my room in Atlanta. On my way to class field trip for the afternoon, around two pm. This is the kind of contrast I see as I drive away from my house.During breakfast, Junco is looking at her weave sample. I will help her make the files today. Turning the corner into Midtown, around a quarter of a mile away. Proof that it is really seventy degrees here, sitting in traffic, which is the norm if you go anywhere in Atlanta Proof that it is really seventy degrees here, sitting in traffic, which is the norm if you go anywhere in Atlanta So I couldnt resist a little story, about what it is like driviing here. As you can see from his bumper, the gentleman in the car before me has had altercations before. He was too impatient to wait for the car in front of him, which turned. He made his quick move to nowhere. And to my right, it is clear which direction everyone is going. There is a lot of cars sitting idling all the time in Atlanta. Today, mine was included. I try to avoid driving when I will be sitting idling, adding to the carbon.To my left, the river of traffic on I 85 below the bridge Here we are in front of the Contemporary to visit an artist. Three students showed up...oh well! They got the benefit! A bridge to nowhere. Notice the train running beneath it. The bridge just sits up there, no road attached to it. There are a lot of contrasts in color and texture in the city scape if you look for it. Sadly, the razor ribbon is necessary. Speak to our future? In the evening, Junco and I dressed up to go to her art opening. This ended our day It was a very good opening.
