|"girl 6", ink, watercolor & junk mail collage on a journal page|
Sunday was the all day class mentioned here,
I took the 22 freeway to the 405, got off at Western and on to ...
Destination: Art A really cool gallery & artist co-operative,
just 2 years old, alive with artist studios, gallery & classes.
Located in Old Towne Torrance ...
Today was a day of collage & mixed media.
We used the first hour to loosen up and have fun ...
making "stamp people".
Using a postage stamp for a head ...
and exaggerating body proportions for fun.
Next, on to mixed media!
After a quick demonstration ...
with various papers, graphite & acrylics ... we got to work.
Artists were asked to bring several canvases to play with ...
and to experiment ...
I was so impressed by their individuality ...
& amazing work.
I get to meet the nicest people!
