Fun Online Art Class coming up!

Melanie Testa, is offering a fun online class through Joggles called "Let's Exchange Some Art", which will introduce artists to the idea of building layers on paper with many of the same tools that are used on textiles.
Here is what she has to say about the class:
This class is scheduled to begin on June 25, 2010.

In this class we will discuss layering and building grounds using stamps, stencils, washes and lots of color!

We will make our own stamps using fun and innovative ideas to build both overall designs and singular motifs. We will make out own stencils and use found stencils, create washes, explore accidentalism and have some fun!

3 major projects will be explored using these ideas; Artist Trading Cards, Tags and Mail Art-lets put some cards and envelopes in the mail and give our local postal workers a visual treat while they deliver some fun stuff! So if you are ready to create papers, ATC's and tags that have dynamism and verve, come play with us!

The supply list will be sent to all students one week before the class starts. Once you buy this class you will receive an email order confirmation, but you will not hear from us again until the supply list is sent.

A high speed connection to the internet is recommended for all students.

In order to participate in online classes at joggles you are expected to have basic computer and internet skills. You need to be able to browse the internet, know how to download and save a document to your PC's hard drive, and understand how to open and save email attachments. It is your responsibility to learn these skills before the class begins.

Please be certain you are comfortable with all of these skills. Class fees will not be refunded once the class has begun.

The class will teach you to paint and surface design PAPER! Make stamps and stencils, and play with ideas of composition and color. We will create three projects using these techniques, Artist Trading Cards, Tag and MAIL ART. We use the postal system as an art gallery, making our own envelopes and sharing the fun with one another within the group.
