HAPPY NEW YEAR! Ugh, I’m sick of saying it already. Â :)
I hope that everyone who celebrated made it home safe and sound. Â We had a small gathering at the studio. Â Everyone was so wrapped up in their art, we ended up not noticing the new year until it was midnight in the NEXT time zone. Â I did automate a “White Rabbit” tweet so at least I got that out there. Â Most notably, however, I began 2011 arting, I ended 2011 arting, and I started 2012 arting. Â Seems like a pretty good streak to me.
I can honestly say there was absolutely NO progress made on the studio this week. Â Between family commitments and a day job that I feel responsible to, I never really got away many daylight hours to get anything done.
This time of year we are ALL severely limited on fundage so we may be building with used pallets. Â If you would like to help with that, you can go to artisticbiker.com and look for the DONATE button on the right side column and donate what you can. Â If you can’t do that, please share this newsletter with everyone you know to help get the word out. Â That helps more than you know. Â Or better yet,Â Click Here to Join!Â artisticbiker.com/membershipÂ and help promote the arts in rural Oklahoma.
If you have any announcements you would like made in the newsletter or tweeted aboutÂ incessantly, drop me a line and I’ll toot your horn for ya. Â ;) Â There were no announcements this week.
This week’s password: beginning
The Classroom site isÂ http://www.ustream.tv/channel/oasisgalleryok
Drawing Class: The Eye – Tuesday night 6pm central. Â A one hour class is a bit short to go into complete portraiture. Â It’s a little in depth for a beginners class also. Â However, we can run through the components of a face a little at a time. Â This week, I’ll talk about basic eye structure, detail, and shading.
Painting Class: Composition – Wednesday night 6pm central. As we kick off a new year, let’s kick off with a new painting and discuss orienting a design on a surface.
The past classes are moving into the Pay-per-view side of ustream and on artisticbiker.com as well. $2 lets you view them online at Ustream, $5 lets you download them at artisticbiker.com, and a $10/month membership gets you unlimited downloads from the site.
