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 almost twenty years now. 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

Thanks for stopping by!

A Closer Look at My Summer 2015 Classes


Here is my list of classes for Summer 2015.
  
I'm ALWAYS looking for new teaching venues so if you know of any that may be interested, I'd love to hear. I have taught at stores, museums, schools, backyards, garages, studios and private homes. I also am available for teaching home schooling art classes.
  
My workshops are always process-based learning while creating a unique product. I am well known for not traveling light and bring a large variety of supplies including (but not limited to) collage material, rubber stamps, stencils, pens, markers, tape and more.  
Please note the small supply list for each class.
   
If you're not near where I'll be teaching, but you're interested in taking a class, I do offer a variety of online classes (27 different online workshops as of March 2015.) You can find out more info on the right side of my main blog.


Thank YOU for your interest!

A Gypsy Heart- Construct a rich, lusciously layered portrait of you in journal form by bringing together color, text and images onto the page. You will make visually stunning and authentic pages, all contained in a hardcover book bound by your own hands. You will leave class with several pages completed along with new ideas for the rest of your book.

Supply list: scissors, a 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 (if you have one),  1" brush to glue (I like chip or bristle brushes), a few of your favorite glue sticks (large glue sticks will last you longer), an old catalog or magazine to glue on (if you don't want to use all of your waxed paper for this.)
   
* 14th The Art Bar Santa Ana special one time class!



 
Found: Moments of Me: Imagine a book so precious you can hold it in the palm of your hand. We will create a small paper book that you can carry in your purse or pocket on your daily (or far away) travels. You will open up and discover new possibilities of creative expression on your pages by combining paper, tape, stencils, pens and markers with your own musings. I loved working in this little book, you will, too!
