Ready to go back to school?
If you read anything here, you already know I’m a little freaked out because this is the first September in the history of my entire life that I am not going back to school. I’ve also had enough requests to run this class again that it seemed the apt thing to do. So yes, if you’ve been reading for a full year, you’ve seen this before. Don’t start thinking everything is going to be repeats — there’s plenty of new waiting for its moment to shine too!
Learn Something New Every Day is a class to start the autumn term. Over the month of September, we’ll make thirty entries in this small-format book designed to getting your eyes open to observing your world.
Worried about time? Fair enough. It does take time to make an entry every day. But the pages are small (6 inches square) and we’ll use some short cuts to keep your supplies to a nice small collection and we’ll focus on summary journalling rather than documenting each day with a full report. And every day you have the option of just duplicating the example page, so that could even eliminate your thinking time. We’re talking minutes every day here.
Yes, this is a repeat class from 2006. Everyone who signed up in 2006 gets to play again, if you fancy. For free. If you’re joining in for the first time in 2007, you’ll get to see their work as we go. With each prompt, I’ll send you a list of links to their work posted on the internet so you can stay inspired and see that you really can make a page every day for a month.
In this class, you get:
*An introductory shout-out to get you going
*30 daily prompts with full colour samples
*The chance to chat and share your work with other artists
*A Flickr group to post your pictures
Class begins September 1. Don’t be late!
Any questions? Just stick ‘em in the comments & I’ll get an answer to you asap.
Here’s to a great September, whether you’re in school or out!
