Maybe it is time for me to begin posting again. I've come to the end of a project that has been interesting and fun. It was made possible by a grant from Art-Starts Vancouver. Because of the project, I began painting in watercolours, drawing with crayons and pencils and exploring the landscape of a local Forest area where the students occasionally visit with their classmates.
After so many years of using technology for my designs, it has been a refreshing experience to work with a hands-on approach. Because of Coronavirus, the project has been online, as I can not visit the school in person and the schools have new rules until we get through the virus issues. I have created a number of short video demonstrations related to drawing and painting.
I have tried to figure out how Instagram works and when I understand how it works, I may begin to post photos from my drawing table. In the meantime, I will post a few images to perk this lonely blog up a bit. After all, life is short so why not post my work instead of putting it all into a drawer. This month I have been taking a class led by a wonderful artist, and this little sketchbook image is of two marker drawings inspired by one art project from Lisa Congdon and the inspiration of Mary Blair, the Disney artist.
And here is a
demonstration video of the project and how I adapted it for the children.
