It's 3:30 am and I won't mention the poor sweet girl asleep next to me who just got sick all over her bed (please aim away from the computer, please aim away from the computer.) Naturally, I'm wide awake and decided to see what I could find at the Tate. I found some lovely Warhol Christmas cards, so wait one second while I ask Husband if we can use them. Honey? Nudge. "Can I order some Christmas cards from a museum store?" Answer: umm hummm, grunt, turn over (removing the darned covers with him.) YES! With all of you as my witnesses. And here's a cool coffee mug of the Tate Liverpool.
I've had my eye on coffee mugs lately because last week Husband arrived home with a horrific set of mugs from WAL-MART with autumn foliage or fruit (or some crap - I'm sure you get the picutre) on them. I immediately placed them into the GoodWill box but he found them, got mad, and we wound up in an argument becuase they are "gorgeous" and I clearly have no taste. I swear to you, he called them gorgeous. Wait, maybe they're online and I can receive a sympathy comment or two. Oh dear, here they are. And God help me, apparently he could have bought them as a 16 piece dinnerware set.
Ok, back to the Tate. Look at the Artist's Techniques and Methods course. For just 20 quid (I can't figure out how to do pound sign at this hour) you get unlimited access, assignments, video tutorials and can post your art to get critiqued (oh yeah, fun. Posting art at the Tate Modern sounds sooooo painless. Root canal, anyone?) The courses look wonderful, though, and check out the kid's section because it almost (like in a distant galaxy kind of almost) makes home schooling look tempting.
