classes & workshops
In this course we will be art journaling. I will be using a plethora of art supplies and explaining how I use these supplies while discussing composition and mixed media techniques. I will demonstrate some portraiture and will teach you different ways I approach this in my art journal. We will work on several spreads so you can try different styles and find new ways of growing your art skills.
We will go into each spread by layering handwriting with paint and gesso. We will build upon those layers with mixed media and adhering paper and ephemera. Then we will add a focal point and find a way to express a thought or feeling through your journaling. You will learn new skills while creating something you love.
Try whatever you want - this is for YOU! Get inspired by an artist you admire or create something original. Make a mess, paint over what you don't like, rip pages out and throw them in the trash. Take pictures and post them on social media or never show one living soul.
When you’re stuck, art journaling sets you free. You open yourself up and let your frustrations go. You gift yourself the pleasure of experimentation. You discover that you have something to say. You open your heart.
