In this class, I'm going to show you a fun technique I like to do with my abstract art to push myself a bit further. We are going to be using Art Prompts! I love creating a collection of prompts and then using them when I'm creating to add some unexpected elements into my art. To push myself to think outside my own limitations and try new things as I'm creating. This is a great way to experiment with new supplies, colors, substrates, etc... This is the way we learn how to use our materials and discover new things. Doing a project like this will often lead you in new directions in your art!
I'll be focused on little abstracts for doing these projects - but you don't have to limit yourself to doing abstracts. You can apply these techniques to any type of art you choose!
Before I get started I will go through my supplies and pull out the ones I am going to use and I will put all the others away. This might include supplies just in my colors, new supplies I'm wanting to try out, my paper choice, and then I tell myself - this is it... let's see what we can create!
This class is for you if:
Supplies: I encourage you to use your supplies you have on hand to do your projects. You do not have to purchase any specific supplies for this class. It is all about experimenting with the supplies you have and learning to let loose.
That is the majority of supplies I am using... but as I mentioned above - don't think you need to go out and buy tons of new supplies (unless you just want to...). Try this project with some of the supplies you have on hand and grow from there.
By the end of this class, you'll be inspired and ready to create some beautiful art of your own.
Your project: Is simple... Create a series of art prompts of your own. You can use anything you want to be the cards, you can do the project in class where we make little cards of our own, you can use blank business cards like I did when class started, you can cut up little cards out of cardstock to do these.
Write your prompts out on the cards, then use them to create your projects. I have all of the prompts I came up with for my cards that you can start with. But don't stop there. Do some brainstorming and come up with some of your own additional art prompts to add to your deck too!!
