artful gathering 2011
This on-line workshop was a first for me. It was the first annual Artful Gathering. People joined the classes from around the world. Learning from the art and experiences of the other participants was great. I took one class from Pam Carriker and another from Zinnia Galliher.
Pam's class focused on art journaling techniques. Since art journaling is something I already do it was fun to learn some new ways to use color application techniques, layering, and new tools to make groovy pages.
Zinnia's class focused on creating texture on a variety of surfaces. It was great, messy fun.
The classes were presented as a series of videos. I started each class by watching all the videos and making a few notes. It was easier to refer to the notes instead of searching through video clips when I wanted to be reminded of a particular step in the process. The fact that the notes are pretty is just a bonus.
