THE GAME ROOM
Tuesday Nights is the name of our class and The Game Room is where we meet when we are not together.
Got a idea that just can't wait...tell us about it.
You need to hash something out, maybe we can help.
Or maybe you just want to see what everybody else is up to.
Post links, post pictures, post questions or just ask one.
I teach through action and immersion. Just keep moving, contemplate later. In art, for me at least, there are times of rest and contemplation, and times of work. Art making is a time for work. It is the time to pull from the mental and make physical. Create a reality, a piece of art. For this the contemplative brain needs to move over, the art critic side isn’t even invited to the party. Learn to ask and answer your own questions on the move. The sooner I can get you making art the better. Get something done and then we have something to talk about.

Materials for project one.
So what do you need for class one? Whatever you are going to use for a canvas and your chosen media, a drawing instrument and a sense of play.
I will show examples on the first night. For supports think good paper, velum, canvas (unstretched or stretched.) Remember when I say any media I mean any media. I know we have a quilter, a glass and wire worker and a mosaic artists amongst us. Sculpture or assemblage might be fun. I will bring the printer too, just incase. Remember this is a month and a half project, you have time. Just think of getting a foothold on the first night.
