I'd like to announce my latest online class:
The Journey of You
A guide to self expression utilizing simple tools you probably already have on hand.
In this e-book form course, you will learn how to construct a simple, made from scratch art journal (no sewing necessary)!
As I said before, this is the class that the scrapbook, rubber stamp and mixed media companies do not want you to take!
Why? In this workshop, you will learn how to create expressive collages using magazines or old books, a glue stick and a small handful of pens.
You do not need to go buy anything for this class. I want you to use what you have on hand already.
You will learn composition, design, journaling and a whole new way of looking at simple, every day things.
I loved working in this journal. It pushed me into thinking outside of my box using non-traditional items in a new way. It made me think about not only composition and design but also color, texture, shape, line and form. I am very excited to see what my students will create using this class as their guide.
Are there photos?
Yes, there are photos of my sample pages. You will also have the opportunity to upload and share (if you wish) your own sample pages.
Is there a handout?
YES! I am a firm believer in handouts. You will receive a detailed handout that you can download, save and print out. There are step by step instructions, tons of information, photos and more. There are also (new!) collage templates for you to use if you wish!
What's the supply list?
I really want you to use stuff that you already have on hand. For the pages, you need glue (a glue stick, gel medium, whatever adhesive you usually use for paper). You will need pens (again, use what you have on hand. I limited myself to a small handful of pens for this class-literally, I used like five pens. You need a pair of scissors, an old rag or paper towel for burnishing the images, a gluing surface (like an old catalog). You will need old magazines, catalogs or books for the collage part of the class. In my samples, I used magazine, catalog and book images only. I did not use anything pre-made (so no scrapbook paper, handmade paper, etc...). I did NOT use stickers, transparencies, washi tape, etc... I used simple, every day things from around the house to create my pages which is what I will be teaching you to use and how to see these things with a new eye.
I work full time, can I take this class at any time?
Yes! This is a work at your own pace class. You can sign up at any point. You will have full access to the class. I am always available to answer and respond to questions.
When does the class start?
The class is live now! Within 24 hours of you signing up, you will receive full information from me including the pdf file for the class and the link to sharing photos, discussions, etc...
How much does it cost?
$25 which you can pay via paypal (or if you prefer to send me a money order, you can email me for more information)
Please note there are no refunds once you receive the course materials.
Please also respect the amount of time, effort and work it took me to create this material. You can download, save and print out (or read it on your ipad, kindle, etc...) for personal use. I'm a one woman (very small) business and I work very hard at what I do. I strive to offer the best material possible. I'm always excited about what I teach and I hope that you get the most out of my classes. This helps to support my work and makes me able to offer more classes and come up new ideas!
If you teach children, feel free to work on the exercises with them! I don't mind people who teach kids using these ideas in classes! Get 'em started and hooked on art young is my motto!
Can I give the class as a gift?
Sure! If you email me or include a note with your payment, I will email the file to whomever you'd like.
Who is this class geared towards?
Everyone! I strive to make my classes accessible for beginners to advanced students. I have been working in and teaching this medium for over 14 years now and I learn something new with every workshop.
I have a busy summer ahead of me, should I take this workshop now?
When I came up with the idea for this class, I was teaching and traveling. I used the limited supplies and the tools I had with me to create the book and to start work on the pages. The size, weight and portability, along with the limited amount of supplies you need make this the perfect journal for life on the go or close to home. It's small enough that you can put it in your purse with a glue stick and a pen. I love sticking my collage ephemera, a couple of pens and a glue stick in a baggie with the journal. I'm all about portability and ease!
This class does not close so you can take the workshop ANY time and work at your own pace! Once you've signed up for The Journey of You, you are in the workshop!
