Sis and Me 1966ish
This week had me finally unpacking and trying out a Christmas prezzie - a slide/negative to digital scanner. Since my old (50's/60's era) slide projector was on the blink it was time to find a way to save these images and be able to enjoy them. I can see several collage projects coming from these images - stylish tailor Mom needs one of her own!!
Art class this week (2d design at college) we're studying line. Had to give a quick presentation on an artist and discuss line in his/her work. I quickly chose my fave Andy Goldsworthy and had no trouble in the presentation, I was chosen to go first and popped right up in front without hesitation. (A VAST change from my ultra-shy earlier years when I would have skipped the project and taken an F rather than talk in front of people) Even got spontaneous applause - quite unexpected and very pleasing.
Interesting dynamics in the class. I'm the oldest student in a group of barely out of high schoolers! Night classes have more age variation, I need day classes to work around my daughters elementary school schedule. It is very much a hands on doing sort of class rather than all lecture. My last 2 years of art classes I have been among the youngest in attendance so the switch to working around younger folks is quite delightful.
