Quilt university Artist toolbox lesson 1 and 2

I am really enjoying my online classes at Quilt university.  I am currently working on lesson 2 of the Artist toolbox with Lyric Kinard it really is making me look at shapes colour lines and texture in a new way.  Of course i am behind as i just received lesson 3 i mean whats new there with me lol !!
Lesson 1 was all about shape line and texture and Lesson 2 is working on colour and value, something i need to learn more of.  I highly recommend these classes they are very informative with a vast of information.  I am also currently taking the Darned quilts with Dena Crain which i am behind as the weather is not allowing me to go shopping for some of my fabric i need.  I have been practising sewing my curves though !!
If that wasn't enough i finally signed up for letter 101 with Joanne Sharpe it is a fantastic self paced class and i have been inspired by many bloggers creations taking this class.  I have already done 3 lessons but will post about that later.  Here are a few of my pics showing a little about what i have been doing in class !!
