Fragments of Fragility


Class Registration Open: Beyond the Background

Beyond the Background: A FB Live workshop with Seth Apter

January 27 at 2:30pm EST or January 30 at 7:30pm EST

Registration Now Open

We all have dozens hundreds thousands of backgrounds made – in piles, in boxes and in drawers. Let’s face it…they are fun to make. But what comes next? What do you actually do with a background? This 2-hour Facebook Live class will tackle that question through a series of makes, demos and discussions that you can join in on. This is not a traditional, project-based workshop where we focus on creating one piece of art during class time. Rather, we will be focused on reviewing approaches to going Beyond the Background, specifically with abstract art in mind. I will share with you ways of thinking and doing as we go through multiple options for going from background to completed art. With each approach, we will start with a new background and, using supplies that you are already likely to have, put the techniques in action.

This class is technically Part 2 of my 2020 Facebook class One Layer Away, where I shared my approach to creating layered and dynamic backgrounds. You do not have to have taken this earlier class but it is still available should you want to. Specifics are shared in the supply list further below but, if you want to work along during the Live, have at least 4 backgrounds ready to go. They can be from the One Layer Away workshop or your own supply. 

This class runs in a private Facebook group so you need to be a member of Facebook for access. Cost is $25USD. Please click here for more information and to register.
