    hmmm so I was following your shameless plug...and oooh this is the sort of thing I think I might like to try (like the art dolls) then realise I can't do them.
    I am away all weekend so won't get a chance to have a go for a while. If I miss the boat, hey ho.

    Teaching bug kicking in... can't resist... from my art teacher perspective I can make you all feel better since I think most of you are all already outsider artists. The definition I have come to understand is anything done by an untrained individual is outsider art, meaning that if you didn't go to art school but you've found yourself making art, you are outside the "art world" of galleries and styles, making choices uninformed by that body and yet being creative. I adore the movement since my tagline in my classroom is that everyone is an artist!! If you are ever in the DC metro area there is an amazing art museum in Baltimore, www.avam.org, which provides a home for outsider art - in their definition this is typically art done by the crazy, the fanatic, the OCD, the mentally challenged, prison inmates, children, etc etc etc.... it is an amazing place!!!

    From their page... "Like love, you know it when you see it. But here's the longer definition, straight out of our Mission Statement: "Visionary art as defined for the purposes of the American Visionary Art Museum refers to art produced by self-taught individuals, usually without formal training, whose works arise from an innate personal vision that revels foremost in the creative act itself." In short, visionary art begins by listening to the inner voices of the soul, and often may not even be thought of as 'art' by its creator."

    Oh, yes, Coop. They ARE! *me, being bossy before I even sign up*

    Kati, please add me!
    I updated my available ATCs on January 9th . . . if I'm slow to respond, it's nothing personal. I'm always willing to trade!

    That was my understanding of the definition of outsider art too. I think a lot of it is edgy and pushing at the boundaries. I guess it's easier to break the rules if you didn't have them drilled into you in a structured educational environment.

    Sorry, client interrupted me. I am going to lurk for now because I haven't been feeling all that creative lately with regards to smaller scale art. I would certainly hope I'll be back in the swing of things before the due date, but it already feels like forever.
