Drawing in Color

Sharon at WCC with her art


We are nearing the end of our winter session of my class,"Drawing in Color" at Washtenaw Community College. This class is  a diverse group. Each person brings unique perspective, creativity and talent to their work.  Here is Sharon, who is enthusiastically exploring art. She produced this excellent whimsical portrait of her cat from a lesson on drawing fur and animals.  I had to capture a picture of Sharon and her artwork.

Assemblage Workshop with Valerie Mann at Maker Works

Valerie Mann is a marvelous local artist who conducted an asemblage workshop for AAWA at Maker Works.  Here are some pictures from the workshop and the assemblage, mixed media piece I put together.  Maker works is  a 14,000 sq ft facility "filled with tools, for builders, makers, artists and tinkerers". It supports the creative community in Ann Arbor.

The morning of the workshop, I had eaten a bagel for breakfast  and was wearing aqua and  purple. I think that influenced my design : ). Many of the shapes in this assemblage were cut out using a laser cutter.
