Thankful Thursday – Losing-Yourself-Moments
Ever have those moments when you lose track of time and lose yourself in what you’re doing? I don’t have those moments too often over the course of an average work day (probably because it’s WORK), but when I’m sewing or learning about art, you might as well come and get me a couple hours later.
In my design class, we are learning very basic elements of design, beginning with lines. This week we had to have 14 pages of different lines drawn, one type of line per page. Like I said, very basic, which is good for me! It was a fun exercise to open up my mind.
Then in our next class, we had to CUT UP those pages of lines and make a collage onto a black 15×20 art board. Oh my, CUT UP my line masterpieces?! Gasp! Make a collage? Can you believe I’ve never made a collage before? For the rest of the class, roughly two hours, I lost myself in cutting up my line drawings to assemble a collage. I’m not finished yet but just thinking about it makes me smile.
We also have to draw three pages of examples of lines in everyday life, which I’m really excited about. I’m curious, what lines do you see in your life today?
