I drove up to Costa Mesa on Thursday to attend a class led by Leighanna Light called Metal Deck. This is one of the classes at the art retreat CREATE
It was a great class and fun to work with metal and tools. Leighanna, to me, is a great assemblage artist that is low-keyed and shares her knowledge.
We each got 10 pieces of 4 x 3 tins. We sanded each piece front and back and began our journey altering the metal and collaging. We used some new tools and know I will be making a trip to Harbor Freight for some cool shopping :}
Even though I knew most of the techniques, I learned some good tips and how to use what I have already differently. Can't wait to do more.
