What You'll Find Here

I post daily (photos of my journal pages, things that inspire me and personal bits and pieces) to inspire and encourage others. I have always believed that if I can do it, so can you.

You'll find resources (my favorite supplies, books, slideshows of my art journal pages, favorite bloggers, etc...) listed along the right hand side of my blog.

I've been teaching both in person and online workshops for more than twenty years. You can find out more about my classes by scrolling down along the right hand side of my blog. I strive to make classes accessible to everyone (both beginner to advanced).

I love teaching and truly believe that deep down inside everyone is an artist, capable of creating something. There is power and knowledge in the act of creating something with your own hands, made from your own heart and head.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at EGorey99@sbcglobal.net

January 19th journal pages

I actually started the bird one the other day but finished it last night. I did about 4 pages last night. I swear I was twitching for lack of having worked on my own personal work for a few days.

Would you believe that I just finished compiling the handout for my January A Prompt A Day class? Everything was already completed, typed up, etc... but I needed to still compile all of the prompts and a photo of each page into one big handout.

Um, the handout is 62 pages long.

Since there are 31 days in January and each day there is a Painting, Collage and Journaling prompt, there are 93 prompts total. I'll be emailing these to group members starting today.

I'm VERY excited about the February A Prompt A Day class. January has been AWESOME. Seriously. I always think the best thing about teaching is giving people an idea and they take it and make it their own. I Love love love giving my students the same idea (paint the page or collage the page this way) and they all make their pages unique even if they are using the same colors!! Woo hoo!!!

I also love how the group is composed of such a variety of people from a vast variety of lands...ahh, I LOVE IT. Some never used acrylics before this class while others have been painting for years. Some have never made a journal page before while others have been keeping a journal for a very long time. It's a very sharing, giving group. It's a VERY talented group. I love it-it really is art from the heart which is what I'm always after!

I am VERY excited to be teaching at Art Unraveled again this year. I will be doing a blog post about it when the site goes LIVE.
UNICEF report: Half a million women in underdeveloped countries die each year in childbirth.
4 million children die before their 28th day. "What is more tragic is that about 80 percent of maternal deaths could be prevented if the women had access to basic healthcare and maternity services."

Wonderful pages, as always, Kelly!
I am thoroughly enjoying your class & will be signing up for February, too. I love working with the paints & all, and your prompts keep my work-weary brain functioning on a creative level. Thank you!
I can't believe you already have the January prompts ready for us to download! You rock!!
