The class, entitled "Establishing Your Artistic Identity" pushed twenty of us into re-examining our designs, refining and minimizing them. Did I establish my artistic identity by the end of the class? No way. But I did have an opportunity to explore some design elements in my own works. This class will take me a while to internalize. But I don't think it was correctly titled - I think it should have rather been titled "Refining Your Design Sense" or something similar to that. It was a marvelous class, irregardless of the title, however.
One good thing was working with 36 gauge foil in the class. I really enjoyed the material and ended up purchasing some on Wednesday evening when my roomate Shruti and I took a quick trip north to the local Dick Blick Art Supply store. I ended up with lots of wonderful art supplies - it's hard to beat a trip to an art supply store - and Shruti had no idea they had physical locations, she has only ordered from them on-line. We left with much stuff and less cash - LOL. Shruti was in 7th Heaven.
