I am taking a Silk painting class at the University of Kentucky. Interesting experience being in a class with so many young students. We are now paired up so we can share some of the equipment, and I am with a young man that is Korean and doesn't speak all that much english. I think he understands but is shy about expressing himself. Should be a lot of fun to get to get to know him.
Next week we have a visiting artist by the name of Bob Adams. He is an art quilter and has had pieces in Quilt National for the last 3 shows. He is going to be teaching Shabori and Discharge, all of which I have played with a little. He also is going to Critique the students in our class. Of course I chose to, and think it will be a wonderful opportunity.
We drew 12 sketches, and from those we had to choose three for projects to be completed this semester. You can see the ones I chose and I will post pictures as they are completed. One of them will have 72 different colors it it. That I can't wait to see!
