This month has been so busy, especially the last week. I'm busy teaching PSU classes, seeing clients, and taking care of all the business details we all must attend to. I gave a presentation on women artists of Bologna to a wonderful audience from the Portland-Bologna Sister City Association. I have had some time to make art, and am currently playing with Frozen Charlotte assemblages. In the assemblage above and below, I started with a doll head and torso. I added arms and legs and a little dress made of teabags.
Here are some great pictures from this weekend's PSU class, "Emerging from the Shadows", about Marietta Robusti, a Renaissance painter and Camille Claudel, the 19th century sculptor. The students each make a creative piece based on the artists and issues discussed in class. Several students used as their inspiration this familiar picture of the French sculptor.
