A Few Notes

I keep my class sizes small to ensure plenty of individual interaction and support so classes usually sell out before registration closes.

This session of Working in a Series is the only time I'll be teaching this popular course online in 2013.

Working in a Series

I’ve written quite a bit about this workshop in the past – here are a few links with articles that include student work to give you a better idea of what we’ll be doing:

* These articles address my larger vision for teaching, if you aren’t familiar with my classes.

Sharon created some beautiful work in a recent Working in a Series online workshop, which I’ve shared above.

Here are few thoughts she had about the class:

“This was a fantastic workshop for me. I feel so energized about moving forward.

I have learned an amazing amount about art, about myself, and about other artists over the last 8 months. Until now I’d always seen art as a mysterious world that I had no idea how to enter.

Over the course of this class, reading about other artists, reading, studying, talking (or listening) about artistic principles made art so much more approachable for me.

My situation is sort of odd, I think, because of my background in architecture. Some aspects of art and composition come easily to me, while others are like learning a foreign language.

I’m writing a lot of words to try to say something relatively simple. I feel like a little kid in the coolest playground imaginable, and I’m free to run around exploring whatever I want, and around every corner is something else new and amazing.

I’m one of those people that has to experience things first hand to really absorb them, so even though I understood intellectually what “working in a series” is, and why it’s good, I had to actually go through the process of doing it to really internalize why and how I would want to do it.

Now I understand it, and I can’t wait to get back to the studio and do it!

Lisa thanks for your very well designed and presented class. It’s clear you have put a huge amount of time and energy into organizing and presenting the material in an understandable format for us.”

Hi Lisa,

I may be interested in taking your “Working In A Series” class. I’ve noticed that your students’ work all have that special “I took a class with Lisa Call” touch. :)
Is it a prerequiste that students work in solids and geometric patterns?

Kit – I don’t teach technique in Working in a Series – you are free to work in any style you please – painters, weavers, encaustic artists all take this workshop – they are definitely not using solid fabrics :)

I’ve been working on an alumni page with more images from the workshops. The first version of the page is now available here –

I have many more students to add but this should give you an idea of the variety of the working styles. Everyone really does their own thing!


PS – read Peggy Blacks comments on the alumni page in regards to this :)

Take a class or buy two 12×12’s that I love — you aren’t making this easy! This is very tempting — I know it would be money well spent… GV
