Year Study

Discipline, direction, design all come to mind when I think about why 365 five inch squares exist.

Looking around for a means to focus learning skills, I decided an independent study conducted with myself as student and advisor would fulfill the quest.

Goal:  Explore techniques, materials and composition on a daily basis for one year. Method create a 5 inch square sketch in journal, then develop each into individual works using any technique/materials necessary.

Evaluate the work with consideration of direction to concentrate developing body of work over the next decade.

Exhibit the collection.  Document the process and lessons.  Complete the squares for sale.

The Year Study will be exhibited as twelve monthly panels at Sauder Village during Rug Hooking Week, August 12-15, 2015. Each square will then be separated from the panel and finished as a unique item. Either whipped as a 5 inch piece or mounted as an 8 inch square with frame.  They will be available for sale through my SHOP on this site.
