Incorporating text/writing in your artwork adds a personal dimension to the piece. Even using a text from a book, your personality comes through the writing. Art journals, using a combination of watercolor washes, found objects, and personal journaling have become a popular way of working one’s art practice into one’s daily life. Nothing encourages the muse as much as giving her attention every day.  
The class will cover at least 4 different ways of using text in art.
1. Text as a geometric, or all over, surface. Calligraphy using materials other than ink will be covered.
2. Text as a background to work your own ideas over. This will be self-portrait (loosely defined) worked over text that you choose. It could be a type of journal, or significant poetry
3. Text as a way to add interest to shadows, or add detail in a watercolor.
4. Text used in pottery. I’ll be using the inspiration of potters like Jane Kauffman, and the Sumerians. (We may, or may not be able to fire the pieces. It depends on the pottery schedule)
Some of the materials you will be using are acrylic paints and mediums, graphite, chalk, and charcoal, watercolors, colored pencils, markers and possibly wheat paste. Please dress for the possibility of getting messy.
