Art at the Retreat

Mary Rodes Dell joined us for our productivity/creativity retreat yesterday. Here’s what she had to say about her day:

I took a day off work today to join in a creativity retreat at #Maram Makerspace, hosted by Mary Anne Mohanraj. I spent the morning learning to draw an acanthus leaf, which was a popular 19th century (and earlier) decorative motif. There’s an entire book about drawing it on archive.org—these pictures are my version of the first exercise in the book. In the afternoon I got started on a celtic spiral design. It was a delightful day.
Edit: Here’s the book, Guide to Drawing the Acanthus by I. Page: https://archive.org/deta…/guidefordrawinga00pagerich/page/n8
