"The Workbook" PLAYBOOK
These are bonus pages are from the newest online art class I am taking. The class doesn't actually begin for a few weeks, but the teachers are letting people in to the teaching site to look around and get warmed up while we wait. I signed up for it because I wanted to be pushed in a direction I think this class will take me. That's why I am calling it "The Workbook." Don't get me wrong. I was and still am what some people call "one of those crazy kids who LOVE workbooks." For this class, I will read the directions like in a real workbook, look at the pictures like in a real workbook, BUT then do what I wanna do. That's when my workbook becomes my PLAYBOOK! I know that's ok, because the teacher wrote that there are no rules. Good thing because the first page assignment stated that fabric is optional. What? Uh, what? In my world, fabric is never optional, so instead of putting one optional piece as in the example provided at the site, I put six scraps from other recent projects on mine. There are some other little details that I translated to my liking, too. I think I'm gonna like this. It's kinda like breaking the rules on purpose, except that the teacher said there are none. Sigh.
