Finally got to take an art class with my super-artsy husband! He’s a way better painter than I am and I think the class was fun for him as well. We signed up for Root Division‘s one-night class Alternative Painting: Acrylic Pens and Gloss Gels, swinging by the art supply store on the way to […]

Like many of us crafty types, I’m obsessed with the design aesthetic of Brit+Co, so when they opened up a retail shop in their offices in downtown San Francisco a few years back, I had to sign up to take a few classes as part of my 30 days of art class challenge. The first […]

ART CLASS DAY 18: LETTERPRESS DAY 4 AT SFCB

ART CLASSESBOOK ARTS

The final day of the week-long letterpress intensive with the Mary was filled with hands-on experience on the letterpress (and made me wish the 4 day intensive was a little bit longer). Our final project was intense – we needed to design a 3-piece stationary set, using previously made photopolymer plates and run prints of […]

Day three of the 4-day Letterpress Intensive was probably my favorite. The assignment was to “make a poster” – and after hearing about something called a split fountain or “rainbow roll” (a process of using multiple colors of ink on the roll to allow for multiple colors in one printing) I knew I wanted to […]

Online harassment spoken out loud

My Final Oil Painting Project

ART CLASSES

After my 30 days of art project, I was inspired to take my art instruction to the next level. That’s why for the last 12 weeks, I’ve been taking an adult education oil painting class at the San Francisco Art Institute (fancy). I’m pretty proud of my final oil painting project, a recreation of John […]

Online abuse disproportionately affects women & people of color

COMMUNITY MANAGEMENT

File under: unsurprised. Anyone who has spent any amount of time in any sort of online spotlight has already discovered that people on the Internet are awful. Especially in anonymous comment sections. Ask any community or social media manager about their worst day and, after wincing, they’ll typically describe a day when someone from their […]
