Flying Pictures Project Grows Wings Again
Five of the Seven
Flying Pictures Project Journals
(This photo would have been much better had Robyn taken it in her Italian back yard!)
In the Spring of 2008, I invited three web friends in distant countries to help me plan a traveling artist's journal project. Our group eventually became seven artists on three continents united in our desire to have fun and exchange art and we launched The Flying Pictures Project. Now the project journals,( unfortunately not the participants), will be united for a display at the Oak Park Public Library. I'll be speaking about our process, fun and art work Thursday evening November 12 at 7PM at the Oak Park Public Library. The journals will be on display for the month of November and you can see them up close on the night I'm speaking. They are really beautiful in person. The photos do not do them justice!
I'll also discuss how anyone can start a journeling project and demonstrate how to make a simple pamphlet journal. With very simple tools and daily paper ephemera anyone, even people without art training, can create a rich, satisfying visual journal.
For information about other events at the library you can look at the November calender here.
