Day 1

Hi there!

My name is Julia, I live in Denver, Colorado and I love art! I'm really grateful to have stumbled upon this class because all my life I've had such an appreciation for art, but harbored this limiting belief that I couldn't be an artist or make art. The "Class Overview" video totally inspired me and admittedly got me teary-eyed at one point when I could relate to having this artist inside of me that has never been expressed. From this class I hope to breathe life into that artist and explore the possibilities of actually making some art. So far this class is amazing and I am really enjoying the nuggets of wisdom shared in these beautifully shot videos. Thank you, Ria! 

For the Day 1 Project, I had the following tools around the house: cheap Crayola color pencils, X-Acto knife, metal ruler, glue stick, cottonball and 1 photograph. 

Photography is a hobby I recently started getting into, and I've often wondered what it might be like to combine a photograph with other mediums. I decided to experiment with that concept using what tools I had around. I really wasn't sure where I was going with this, but this was the end result. 

Thanks! Looking forward to seeing other people's art and getting ideas :)
