Indeed, the best part of teaching is how much the teacher learns from the students!
We are three classes into the Altered Book Class I've been teaching at the Woodburn Art Center. I've taught Tole, or decorative, painting in the past, but, this was the first go 'round teaching collage/altered books.
Students always ask good questions and force you to think out of your comfort zone and I like that. It is so much fun to see each persons interpretation of the class work. We are altering a child's Golden book because they are small, not too many pages and a nice size for a beginner.
Thea and Pat busy creating and here are a few pages some of the students have completed..........
I forgot to take photo's of Alexis' work, and it was so great...darn.
A couple people were missing today, hopefully, they will be back next week. Margaret and Thea will have more pages completed by then, too, so I can share those with you.
I am so impressed with how clever and imaginative this work is for "first timers", however, all of these women are accomplished artists and crafts persons......it's pretty obvious they know their way around a paint brush!
