Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
My goal is for artists to experience the fun of creating impressive designs each week inspired by optical art using simple tools and techniques
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from UCLA and spent my first 10 years out of college working with professional designers and photographers in the publishing world. I was exposed to an eclectic variety of art media and styles. I have always been drawn to abstract and graphic art, so I have enjoyed incorporating it into my own portfolio, no matter the media I used. I love how these designs play tricks on your eyes. It has been fun to learn more about these and now share it with new artists!
No specific homework is assigned the artists are encouraged to complete any unfinished designs and try new ones!
You will need: -Pencil -Bar eraser -White paper -Black Ultrafine Sharpie -Black Fine Sharpie -Colored pencils and markers -Sharpener -Ruler *Having a good black marker is important for this class.
Throughout the class, I will have artists share their work with me to see their progress and ask questions as they arise. We will engage in respectful and relaxed conversation as we work.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
