Anticipation of a fabulous class!








I am balancing working towards an art therapy degree and making art. I wanted to be in a psychology course this quarter but that fell through so I pushed to get in to a wonderful sculpture class. I have taken a class with this teacher before and now we will be creating figurative busts. Her own work is amazing and I highly suggest you check out her work, her name is Tip Toland. She does very realistic figures but they aren't the solemn faces they have a mischievous humor peeking out from behind their eyes. Here is a sampling of her people...I apologize for not knowing how to do hyperlinks.

That's impressive! It must be good fun to learn from someone that talented.

Hyperlinks are easy to make in blogger!

When you write a blog post, select/highlight the text or image that you want to make into a link, and click the link button. The button is at the top with the other blog entry editing tool buttons, and looks like a globe with a chain on it. It says "Link" if you hover it. This brings up a box where you can insert the url for your link.

It's very beneficial for artists to have their web site linked to, as people are more likely to click a link than to cut and paste an url, or google the artist. In addition to having their site seen by people who click your link, they will also benefit from the fact that links to their web site from other sites will help them rank higher in search engines.

Hah, I'm such a geek! I hope this was helpful:)
