This is the first lesson of the Art Studies class by Poochie Myers.
Poochie would like to start a dialogue with new students to art as well as professionals who might want to include segments into these art lessons, or field questions from participants. Please email your comments to Poochie: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have to struggle then you are doing something wrong.
Lesson One - Design
Tearing the paper gives you less control and very nice edges. Why do you want less control? Control will stop your creativity. You can keep order without having control. Think about it!
First take 10 sheets of colored paper - some of the 5 colors you like - and lay them down spread out on the floor. You use the floor so you can have more distance from you and your art. It is easier to see what you are doing if you have some distance.
Next tear shapes from other colored paper choices and lay these shapes on the colored sheets - donít think - just have fun. Look at what color looks great over what other color! And you liked all these colors anyway.
Keep tearing and laying until you have completed 10 collages. How do they look? If you are not used to making art they might look strange to you. Donít worry. They are probably wonderful.
Shut your eyes and make one more collage with the left over scraps of paper. Keep those eyes shut. Just feel this one.
Tack them up on the wall when they are all glued. They will look different from this viewpoint. What about that one you made with your eyes shut? It could be the best one?
Look around your home and notice where complimentary colors are beside each other. Is this restful? Does the area seem like it is ďtalkingĒ to you a lot?
Have fun - you canít make too many collages. When you have made 100 then you might begin knowing what you are doing.
