Make Drawing Fun Again [Video]-

Life gets serious. Use these exercises every once in a while to make sure your art forever remains fun and your passion never dies.

While most of us found a love for art because it gave us access to a fun way to use our imagination, it’s easy to lose touch with that freedom when we start to take our work seriously. When was the last time you were able to draw without judging yourself? If it’s been a while, this class is for you.

In this class we will be abandoning expectations and rekindling our love for drawing. We will be doing that through three exercises. Only have time for one? That’s cool-each serves as a complete lesson on it’s own!

In Blobs, Blobs, Blobs we will be using whatever materials we have at our disposal (analog or digital) to create a page of organic shapes. We’ll be using these blobs to create all sorts of characters and designs. In Street Stuff we will take a walk around our neighbourhood or home and hunt down everyday objects to use as inspiration for our work. I promise you’ll never look at a fire hydrant the same way! In Some Assembly Required we will be using a list of our favourite things to draw a combination we would never dream of. Get ready to smash random objects together!

Why We Make Things and Why It Matters by Peter Korn

Why We Make Things and Why It Matters: The Education of a Craftsman by Peter Korn
Requirements: .MP3 reader, 79 MB
Overview: In this moving account, Peter Korn explores the nature and rewards of creative practice. We follow his search for meaning as an Ivy-educated child of the middle class who finds employment as a novice carpenter on Nantucket, transitions to self-employment as a designer and maker of fine furniture, takes a turn at teaching and administration at Colorado’s Anderson Ranch Arts Center, and then founds a school in Maine: the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship, an internationally respected nonprofit institution.
Furniture making practiced as a craft in the 21st century is a decidedly marginal occupation. Yet the view from the periphery can be illuminating. For Korn the challenging work of bringing something new and meaningful into the world through one’s own volition – whether in the arts, the kitchen, or the marketplace – is what generates the meaning and fulfillment that so many of us seek.
This is not a how-to book in any sense. Korn wants to get at the why of craft in particular and the satisfactions of creative work in general to understand their essential nature. How does the making of objects shape our identities? How do the products of creative work inform society? In short, what does the process of making things reveal to us about ourselves? Korn draws on four decades of hands-on experience to answer these questions eloquently, and often poignantly, in this personal, introspective, and revealing book.
Genre: Audiobooks > Non-Fiction
