Well, I'm not the only one who has been working his/her socks off on the MATS course.
Some of my fellow students and new friends are doing a blog tour and today it is my turn, along with two others:
I'd like to introduce Melinda Hopkirk of Crouch River Studio
and Deb Trevitt
Aren't those bears the biz?
As you can see we all have very different styles and approaches, which makes it a lot of fun. There is a great community feel to the group, and although we have never met each other and are based all over the world, we have become friends. Plus we now have a huge pool of artists to bounce ideas off and share information and experience. It's all good.
The course was really fast paced and hugely informative and covered a vast amount of ground in the five weeks of part A. It was like a rocket fuelled version of art college, and just the kick up the backside I needed to get cracking, as Lilla says. I am still recovering.
Scroll down a couple of posts if you haven't seen my MATS work (and want to...)
For a whirlwind world art blog tour, take a look at these talented people...
