After a quick safety lesson including graphic descriptions of possible wounds I passed out the block cutting knifes, happy to report no injuries. HURRAY! They cut thin then cut thick ribbions out of the rubber block, soon they …

Street art class, on The PaintYard

The Paint Yard, wrote a nice post about the ‘Street Art Class’ The paint yard is a great place to get a variety of spray paint and supplies (fat caps, liners, specialty paints, markers and more) and they have the ‘Sugar’ from the makers of Ironlak, the paint is special. It combines water with alcohol made from sugar cane, replacing the usual petroleum-based solvents. The result is an extremely low-odor spray paint that contains fewer VOCs (volatile organic compounds). It is important that students are safe and get to work with high quality materials, while learning the fundamentals of design …

Street Art class, making wrapping paper

The session ended so well we are adding one more class (a sixth week). Great work everyone! Everyone really pushed and got their hand dirty.

The Montana water based paints worked great, Thanks …

The effort she’s putting into sketching is coming though in her can control and line work. Nicole rocking a “LIFE” piece. Finishing or starting? Done, SAT-16. Done, ‘LIFE’, Nicole.  

Class notes and homework

Hola class… Homework Practice letter forms, pick words  containing two vowels (like: seam, hoaps, lazer, or denim, feel free to make up words). Examples This intersecting style below shows the construction of the letter, when using this alphabet erase overlapping/intersecting lines as needed to make the letter whole. This Alphabet adds a bit more style to the ‘straight letter’ style above. You can use this out for that to experiment with style. Remember the better you understand the construction of a letter the easier it will be to style it. For review, how to make a letter… and, drop shadows…
