I am once again enrolled in Willowing Arts Lifebook. 2016 is my fourth year, although I did not complete the first year.
This picture is my version of the warmup lesson offered in Week 1. It was designed and taught by Tamara LaPorte, the owner of Willowing Arts. The name Tamara gave to the lesson is “Creativity Takes Courage: A Playful Warmup Lesson”.
I deviated from the lesson quite a bit.
The girl’s silhouette was a leftover from a lesson in 2015. I had drawn her on sandwich paper. For this warmup lesson, I cut her out, glued her over my background collage and outlined her with plum colored ink.
The background is a combination of hand writing, collage, stenciling and various paint spatters.
I cut the words “Against All Odds” from a magazine and glued them on. The smaller text reads, “personal courage.”
I think the text and words had some special meaning for me at the time I made this, but for now, I forget what that was.
