A number of years ago, when I lived in Seattle, I would have a monthly art date with my art mentor and best friend Linda. Together we went through a number of phases and crafts, including scrapbooking, jewelry making, and collage. I love collage: the meditative quality of finding images that call to me, then carefully cutting them out of magazines and juxtapositioning them with other images for a surreal effect. Rarely do I have an intended meaning, but later on they can take on significance. My collage here is of layered magazine images covering the pages of a baby board book.
Make a date to do art.
Thursday, February 21, 6-8:30pm, is 3rd Thursday Art Night at the Office: Join me, Leslie, to collage, or bring your own craft or art project and enjoy a fresh environment for your creativity. If you want to try collage, I’m happy to share my minimal techniques and supplies. Beginners and lurkers welcome. No charge; small donations accepted for supplies.
