15 Feb February Joy!
Here’s another quote I just love and want to share: “If you choose not to find joy in the snow, you will have less joy in your life, but still the same amount of snow”. unknown
Preparing to teach in-person again is bringing me Joy as I prepare for a collage class at Big Arts, on Sanibel Island, March 1. This focus allows me to concentrate on one of the most fun art-mediums there is, Mixed Media Collage. I keep mine 2D and incorporate old paintings, newly painted and embellished tissue papers, altered found papers (newspaper, doilies, sheet music, coffee filters, fabric, etc.), watercolor, acrylic, gouache, pigment sticks, ink, graphite and anything else that might tweak my interest. It’s all thrown in together, gets cooking, simmers and makes for a whole lot of Fun and a whole lot of Joy!
There’s plenty of Joy out there for you, too, so I hope you gather some materials, glue, sturdy backing and just start playing with shapes and color. When you like what you have, take a picture (so you remember where the pieces go), glue it down and enJoy! Kathleen
