Gearing up for Week 3--Ideas into Action

So, after filling out my studio proposals with project details, I sat down to work on sketches and ordered supplies. To keep things straight, each class has a distinct theme. The first project for each class has begun. I was so into my homework lsat Saturday that I forgot to eat!


Memory and place--four pictures depicting a place which no longer exists and a memory that may or may not have occurred there. This is always a great broad theme!


Renaissance-inspired art--I love Renaissance art and it doesn't get the attention it deserves in art college. It's easier to focus on modern artist, but now I have the skill level to re-explore and do some research on the period.


Homebody--I proposed a series of square-based works of domestic life during the pandemic where self-isolation means spending a lot more time at home--and with ourselves.

The fun thing about paper-based art is that I have all the materials at home, so the projects will be thrifty and eco-friendly. I am going to track all the waste created from my projects by saving anything that can't be recycled to examine at the end of April.


  1. Wow, so many projects! They all sound so interesting, I hope you'll post images of the finished works and/or works in progress?

    1. Hi Cindy, thanks for your comment! Stay tuned--I will be posting WIP and final pictures. It was really hard to keep on top of things and I was often too tired to dash out a blog post after work.
