Class Proposals

Posted by: Jacqueline Sullivan on October 16th, 2007

I have been working for some time on class proposals for the various art retreats next year. It is so hard to come up with something new! I really like teaching process classes – but finding new processes all of the time is a real challenge! So, mostly I have been trying to work with my usual processes but in a different way.

My fascination with Molding Paste continues! I just love stencilling with the stuff! In this collage, which I have proposed to Art Unraveled in Phoenix for next year, I have used the molding paste around vintage images. It is always a little “tricky” to make the molding paste and the photo look like they are unified, but I think that they really do merge well in this collage. And, while I usually do not work much with vintage images, I am rather fond of this piece- the layers stand out nicely over the canvas and the colors and images are working well!


And it worked!

I just tried testing this to see if I could post, and amazingly it worked! Now, I guess I am officially a blogger!

So, I guess that means that I need to think of things to comment on – hopefully happy things! Right now I am busily working on proposals for a number of the major Art Retreats. Why, oh why, am I never ready for these – I have known that they were coming for months, and, of course IPhoto is not working on the IMAC since I had it repaired and the CD is at work with all of my other MAC CD’s. So, I am late with the last few photos! I will upload them here, when I actually manage to get them out of the camera!
