As summer winds down, my workshop schedule heats up and I find myself gathering supplies and creating guides and collage sheets for my students.
First up will be MORE ART JOURNAL PAGES at INK ABOUT IT in Westford, MA. On Saturday, September 7th I'll be offering two sessions: 10am-1pm and another from 2:30pm-5:30pm. We'll use more techniques and materials than in the first ART JOURNAL PAGES class that I taught there this summer, but no previous experience is needed for this follow-up class.
Later in September, on Saturday the 28th, I'll be at ECLECTIC PAPERIE'S studio space in Hampton Falls, NH teaching MIXED MEDIA ART JOURNALING from 10am-1pm. Venture into the world of art journaling, an expressive outlet and playground for your creativity. Explore a variety of techniques and materials while creating art for art’s sake; art that is yours alone and uniquely “you.” All levels are welcome.
Over Columbus Day weekend, on Saturday, October 12th, I'll be teaching LITTLE BOOK OF SECRETS at the ART IS...YOU art retreat in Stamford, CT. Big things come in small packages and the same can be said for art journals! Using small canvases, paint distressing techniques and embellishments, we’ll create texture-rich journal covers. Mixed media and collage techniques will fill our accordion-style, pint-sized pages with special thoughts.
The end of October finds me back at ECLECTIC PAPERIE for MIXED MEDIA MANIA on the 26th from 10am-2pm. Color, color and more color! Unleash your creativity with acrylic paints, oil pastels, water-soluble crayons, decorative papers and inks. Use ordinary objects as print-makers to add texture and design, and create canvases that burst with color and originality! We’ll play with layer upon layer of media infused with design and texture. Think “fingers covered in paint, inks and gel medium” while creating canvases that evolve and grow and reflect the beauty of the individual.
I hope that if you're in the area, you can join me for some artful fun at one of my live workshops.
