This class has been brewing in my head for several years now and I can't wait to share it with you! In this workshop, you will learn skills in box making, book making, collage, assemblage, art journaling, self expression, composition, design, and much, much more.
We will begin by creating a book box covered in papers that are chosen by you (and provided by me.) Next up is creating a variety of books that fit into the box. Learn a variety of simple but fun construction and bookbinding techniques.
After the work is done, we will switch gears and begin to fill our pages. You will learn a plethora of mixed media techniques including but not limited to collage, color, composition, design, pen work, layering and much, much more. I strive to make each of the techniques that I present in my classes different than other classes and you will love what you create in this workshop!
You will walk out of class with a finished box, all of your books assembled, several pages richly layered in your own unique style learning the techniques and ideas demonstrated in the workshop. You will love what you create and all of the new possibilities that will be presented and shared in class.
Supply list: Scissors, small selection of favorite collage ephemera, bone folder, cork back metal ruler, roll of waxed paper, roll of paper towels OR an old rag, permanent black ink pad, 1" brush to glue (I like chip or bristle brushes), a few of your favorite glue sticks, an old catalog or magazine to glue on (if you don't want to use all of your waxed paper for this.)
Friday, June 19th 7 to 9 p.m.
What do you get when you combine paper, pens, stencils, stickers, and stamps with new techniques in composition, design, color and means of self expression together on the page? You get truly unique and personal pages of art. Learn techniques that are applicable to ANY art form. Yes, we'll be "painting with paper" (collage) but learning art techniques that can be used and adapted to whatever art you want to work on. You will learn several new techniques in using collage as a means of self expression.
Supply list: Journal (or I will provide paper for you to work on), scissors, small selection of favorite collage ephemera, bone folder, cork back metal ruler, roll of paper towels OR an old rag, permanent black ink pad, 1" brush to glue (I like chip or bristle brushes) OR a few of your favorite glue sticks, roll of waxed paper OR an old catalog or magazine to glue on (if you don't want to use all of your waxed paper for this.)
*Students in Layers of Me have the option of making (along with their box) either a deck of cards or a small paper book. When you sign up, please let me know which you would prefer to make: a deck of cards or a small book.*
