On-Line Class: The Artist's Toolbox


If you are looking for an easy way to learn about art, to pick up the basics of the visual language,
I'd like to suggest my upcoming class:

The Artist's Toolbox
Reaching by Lyric Kinard

An on-line course at www. QuiltUniversity.com

based on the book

Come learn the basic alphabet of the visual language, the elements and principles of good design.


I'll walk you through each element, explaining them in easy to understand language and metaphors.


We'll observe each element of the visual language in the world around us.
We'll learn to see with the eyes of an artist.


Finally we'll put what we've learned into practice through practical exercises.


The supply list couldn't be simpler.
Sketchbook and whatever drawing stuff you have
Glue Stick
Fabric of Paper Scraps

Class begins September 30

I have signed up, and can't wait - also, I will be posting a link to your site on my blog (hope that's okay) - the painting of the Geisha worked out wonderfully, and thanks again for your insight!

I can vouch for the Teacher of the Year award. She does a great job, and I continually learn tons of great insights!

Full disclosure: I'm her husband.

Really, she does put a lot of hard work preparing for each teaching event.
