Art Together Autumn 2013: Color (27 pp PDF)
Welcome to the first issue of Art Together: E-Zine, a quarterly publication that has existed solely in my mind for far too long now. I’m excited that it finally is a Real Thing, so I can share it with you. I hope to inspire confidence in artists of all ages, and I do believe we are all artists in some way. Each issue will have a different focus—perhaps a technique, or a principle of design (as with this issue, COLOR)—along with information and activities supporting that focus. Hopefully you find something within these pages that speaks to you or your child. My dearest hope is that children and adults together will explore and play with art, with no expectations of the finished product in mind. Experiment! See where it takes you. Play together. Exchange ideas. My brand of art is free and loose, playful and fun. I hope you enjoy it.
