|This is my lovely welding booth. Number #11!|
Another fun thing I did was on Friday. Laura, a friend of mine here in Charleston, organized a "tweetup" for ladies who are on Twitter in the Charleston area. As it turned out, it was mostly entrepreneurs and creatively-minded ladies. It was a super high-energy kind of thing, and I think that everyone was so excited to be with other like-minded individuals. There was talk of more group luncheons and some folks were instant friends and began to make plans for other outings. The girl I sat across from, Charlotte, is a wedding photographer, but also loves the more traditional arts. She was trying to convince me to go to a figure drawing class here at one of the art centers. I took a life drawing class in college - and I was terrible! My proportions were always off and it looked like my models had fallen out of a 6 story window, only to land in these horrible, awkward positions, instead of these lovely, graceful poses that we were supposed to capture. BUT, in the spirit of the moment, I told her I would love to go, but that I wanted to sit in the back with shields on the sides of my paper, so that no one else could see what I was drawing. :) But you see, I think it is good to work on drawing and sketching, no matter what the subject, and spending time on learning/practicing other forms of art is not time wasted. So while my drawings may look terrible in the beginning, hopefully they will start to improve over time. I will keep you posted on how the classes go, if we actually get brave enough to go! :)
How are you adding to the creativity in your life? Are you taking a fun e-course or trying out something new and slightly scary? I'd love to hear about it! I have seen a couple of really cool e-courses out there right now, that I'd love to try....
