081: Listener Mail

 

Mom and I are doing our best to get back into the podcast swing of things.  We’ve been podcasting since 2012 (6 YEARS!!!) but we’re not great about frequency.  This will be just our sixth podcast in 2018.  (Note to self: put podcast in calendar as a “to do.”)  All of that said, today’s podcast is a particularly good one, because it’s a conversation with YOU! We chose a few of the awesome comments you’ve left to share and discuss.

Mom and I would also love it if you would take a few minutes to take this four question survey about the podcast and why you do or don’t listen to it.  Should take you less than one minute to complete.

Thank you for your time!

Finally, a quick reminder that I’ve got a bunch of teaching gigs coming up:

September 22-23: I’ll be at The Ink Pad in NYC.

Saturday is “Interesting Faces” where I’ll be sharing my techniques and ideas for creating truly unique faces.  It’s time to play beyond the edges of your imagination!

Sunday is “Painted Paper Collage.”  In this class I’ll be sharing some of the techniques that I use over and over for projects big and small, including this fabulous collaged dress:

October 13-14: ScanNCut for Artists in the Boston area

I’m super excited to be teaching an in-person ScanNCut class.  This is the first one I’ve taught that is open to the public and it is focused on using the ScanNCut as an art tool to make stamps, stencils, screens, and more!

November 2-4: co-teaching a 3-day class with Nat Kalbach in the UK

Nat and I are both so psyched to take you through the process of creating mixed media collages from two different perspectives.  I think it’s going to be an amazing class!

I hope to see you in class!  Thanks for stopping by!

079: Time & Perspective

 

For the first time in podcast history, Mom and I are in the same room to record this episode of the Adventures in Arting Podcast!  I wonder if there’s any difference in how the podcast feels?  You’ll have to let me know!

As mentioned on the podcast, I’ve got a bunch of teaching gigs coming up:

I hope to see you in class!

063: Julie Loves Learning

I’m delighted to bring you another episode of the Adventures in Arting Podcast!  Today’s podcast features a conversation about learning in general and four particular learning experiences — the marbling class I shared in yesterday’s blog post, a lecture on Winslow Homer’s Summer Night (see a bit in this vlog), the connoisseurship dinner at the Museum of Fine Arts (see a bit in this vlog) and then a quilting class I took last weekend (photos below):

Class started with our instructor, Timna Tarr, sharing some of her quilts:

After some brief instructions….

…we were off and running with our own improvisational piecing!

The picture above is the quilt top that I finished in class.  Kind of a hot mess, but I’m letting it marinate.

I don’t have a lot of photos because of the snow that day…

…most of the students left class early to get home before the roads got too bad.  I was one of the few who stayed the whole day and at the end of the day, I took my little red wagon, and headed home!

040: At the Museum With a Friend

 

I’m delighted to bring you another episode of the Adventures in Arting Podcast!  Today’s topic is going to the museum with a friend and how that changes the experience.  For this podcast Mom and I invited our friend, Nathalie Kalbach to join us!  Here’s a photo I took of her at MoMA in the Picasso Sculpture exhibit:

And one I took of Mom at the deCordova Sculpture Garden:

And a photo my Dad took of me at the MFA exhibit I mention on the podcast:

Can’t take me anywhere…. 😉

And because we talked so much about food at the museum, here’s a photo of the most recent meal Nathalie and I had at MoMA:

Yum!

On the podcast we discuss why you go to a museum, bringing yourself to the art viewing experience, the nature of failure, art in real life vs. photographs, whether knowledge helps or hurts the viewing experience, food, and the magic of talking about art with a friend.

Be sure to leave us your comments and questions!  We’d love to add your voice to the conversation!
