Hello from Carla!! I thought I would give you a creative update. The registration for the June Beg. Photoshop Elements Class has been very successful! On Friday, June 10, 2011, I will close registration for this class, so it is not too late. See this post for more info, including a link to register.
Creative wise, I am in the process of taking my Tablet Class and converting it to be an online class. To do this, you basically shoot lots of screen shot videos and edit them. I really love teaching in on online format, and meeting students from all over the globe is yet another side benefit of teaching online.
I sent out a newsletter a few days ago, letting students know that the June Beg. PSE class is the prerequisite for my Tablet class. What is a Tablet class, you might be wondering?
Since I started quilting professionally back in 2004, I had a tablet PC (a laptop with the ability to draw on the monitor screen), so I started designing quilts with my tablet. This evolved into drawing the cartoons, and other digital work. Here are some examples, including this quilt design I drew for Amy, a talented quilter:
Here is a random cartoon:
And, here is a handout for a class:
There is so much you can do artistically with a tablet, or a tablet plug-in or Tablet PC, so that is basically what my class will teach you!
Other news: I now have a new adorable grandson named Ethan, and love having Jack (my grandson, now 3) and Kate (granddaughter, age 1) over to visit! There is nothing like grandchildren, they melt your heart!
Sarge, the new dog, is a joy to own! He has bonded with the family and he just got a summer cut, so he looks funny. I’ll have to show you.
My goal this week is to tackle cleaning my studio. Anyone else need to organize their studio, too?
What are YOU up to? Carla
