I just joined an art group Artists of the Round Table. I’ve been drawing more or less every day in a little black notebook ever since I started the Tate Drawing course and I thought this looked like an interesting and friendly community. They ask some interesting questions in their first email so I thought I’d share my answers here.
What arts and crafts do you have skills in?
Sewing, embroidery, batik, knitting, ceramics, painting furniture, photography.
What colors are your “Fun Colors?”
How did you “fall in love,” with art?
Did you have a mentor or someone who inspired you to begin your artistic adventures?
Recently I’ve been pulled back to drawing. I treated myself to an on line drawing course with the Tate Gallery recently and really enjoyed it. I suppose Michael Nobbs’ blog Sustainably Creative and his book Start to Draw Your Life set me off in this direction.
What do you hope to glean from the A.R.T. community?
I’m hoping to join their Raw Art Journaling Workshop which is based on Raw Art Journaling: Making Meaning, Making Art by Quinn McDonald
Quinn also has an excellent blog at Quin Creative which I’m enjoying reading. There’s lots on there about writing as well as art so I’m very happy to have found it.
