Studio School with Lilla Rogers


Dan Le Cuisine posterise

The last 5 weeks have been SO fun for me! I have been going to school. But, not to any ordinary school. I have been going to Lilla Rogers Studio School and oh my goodness it has been SO awesome for me!!!! Exactly what I needed because it sure has got my creative gears just whirling!!! This blog post is only covering week one because seriously, I have doodled, painted, Photoshoped, and created so many things over the last five weeks that I could write a small book! SO WONDERFUL!Lilla Rogers truly is amazing. I studied Fine Art at the University of Alberta, but this class has given a fun & fresh new look at the designing industry. Plus the other designers that take the class are really inspiring, talented and a real pleasure to interact with also. Week one we started by looking at fruits and older style containers like Corningware. SO Cool! You don’t realise how lovely they are until you take a closer look. The purpose of week one was to then take these elements that we created and use them for fabric design. Assignment one i img099 Plums

So, I got out my watercolours, gelatos, Pan Pastels, & inks and just had fun!

It really was a fun week and oh my goodness did I work hard! I can’t wait to show you what else I created during the other weeks! If you are on the fence about whether you should take Lilla’s course or any course or not…DO IT!!! It is so good for the HEAD, HEART & SOUL!!!
