This looks great fun!
It's a 4 week free online course - yes, I did say FREE - covering Art Journal techniques (background layering and basics on how to create a front facing portrait), an Altered Book Project (more techniques with background layering, acrylics transfer, altering photographs, and basics on how to create a whimsy creature), creating an Empathy Monster (looking at the basics of making a puppet) and Painting a Needs Angel (on wood or paper, tips on portrait shading, more background techniques and a look at how to do a stylised clothed body).
Click on the button and have a look. All you have to do is join the ning group (what on earth is a ning group, sounds a bit Monty Python!), which is just filling in very basic details (not your bank details!), and you're ready. It starts later in the month but the suggested materials list is available now (I would imagine you've already got most of it in your stash).
See you in class.......?
