I have so many things to share with you! The Sisterhood of the Traveling Canvas has begun their own Blog!! We will be sharing in a sisterly fashion, all about our art journeys and include information about where we are going, what we are doing, glimpses into our art and personal lives, and lots of artsy goodies along the way. This blog will be all about sharing our love of Art and each other. We hope our little community will inspire you to create your own little communities, to share in the joys and sorrows of an artistic life.
The first order of business over there is to begin spreading the word about our contribution to aid the fight against Breast Cancer. We have joined The Pink Team and offered up the lovely canvas AND the journal that are featured in the current Somerset Studio! They will be raffled off in a very cool way. This cause has become near and dear to my heart as my step mom was diagnosed right at printing time of our article. It was our intent to auction the work and journal off for a charity right from the start, but when I shared with my sisters of my step mom’s diagnosis, they stepped right up to the plate and agreed to donate our proceeds to this worthy cause.
And then there’s the ‘Sisterhood’. Eight women who came together on the Etsy forums to form the bonds of friends and sisters. Sharing techniques, giving advice, sharing the joys and sorrows of everyday life. Our own little community supporting each other in the way that only another artist can.
My friend Nancy Lefko will be teaching an online class through Creative Workshops, registration is now open, so be sure to check it out!
Just as artists benefit from a support system, every work of art needs a supportive background. This five-session class will guide you through the process of creating a background rich in pattern, color and design. We’ll start with the hardback cover of an old book as our base and add papers, paint, designs and inks to create the perfect background to compliment your focal point.This class will be a combination of images, written instructions and video.Workshop begins March 9, 2009Fee: $40
