This was the first project we did at Valley Ridge. Cool, huh? The point: it was a great ice-breaker to begin class, and to illustrate the point that we all need to march to our own drummer - especially in a workshop. Find your pace, then stretch it a little. Each artist made an awesome set of sticks...I wish I had taken a group photo! Drats.
I was a little late this month getting the new crusade posted. The challenge is to put into words how you feel about creativity being part of your life. And then, so we get to know one another better, I invite you to tell us about the different kinds of art you make. Isn't true we never really fit into one category? The umbrella term 'mixed media' seems to be a label many use...but I have never really liked it. Too vague. Be more specific...I am a painter, a book artist, a visual journaler, a found object manipulater, a constructivist, an amateur jewelry maker, a polymer clay player, an aerosol artist, a stamp, stencil, and graphic designer...like that. Gives you a better picture, right? Anyway, come play...Crusade No. 56 (warning: if you are at work, turn down your speakers before visiting the street team site.)
