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.

San Diego: The Journal Experience: A Master Class: Saturday, December 12th 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

I am very happy to announce that I will be teaching in the Normal Heights neighborhood of San Diego at a private studio (classes are open to the public for this workshop.)

THE JOURNAL EXPERIENCE: A MASTER CLASS Saturday, December 12th 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

This is a fresh, new workshop that teaches a variety of NEW ideas in collage, creative processing, self expression, composition, design, layering, painting and much, much more.

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 there is a small supply list below the class description.

Beginners to advanced are welcome in ALL of my classes.

Interested in signing up? Questions? Please email Kelly for more info! EGorey99@sbcglobal.net

Payments for the San Diego, CA workshop must be made in advance. Due to the fact that the teacher is traveling from Los Angeles and must prep for the workshops in advance, there are no cancellations allowed. No refunds.

You may send someone else in your place if you are unable to attend the workshop, or you will receive a kit for the class. You can either pay via paypal (see button below) or send a check or money order. Once you've signed up for the workshop, you will be sent the address and directions to the workshop location. If you have ANY questions you can email me. I will also give you my cell phone number so you contact me.

If you have any problems with the paypal buttons (they can be finicky sometimes, please email me at EGorey99@sbcglobal.net) 


The Journal Experience: A Master Class
Saturday, December 12th 10 a.m to 2 p.m.

Journaling doesn't have to be about special events nor does it have to be limited to what you ate for breakfast. In this four hour workshop, we'll focus on the everyday, simple moments that add up to an individual lifetime of experiences and thoughts. You'll learn how to revel in the daily moments and turn them into art journal pages. Be prepared to get messy, be pushed out of your box, laugh, learn (a lot) and have some fun.

This is a very special class held in a very special studio. I know that this can be an overwhelming time of the year. Come spend the day with us! You will be inspired as you are surrounded by creative and fun fellow artists. Take a break from the craziness of season and come get grounded. Nurture your creative energies and your whole holiday season will benefit!

Supply list: a journal (or I will have paper for you), an apron, scissors, a selection of favorite collage ephemera (think about reading this when choosing your images), cork back metal ruler, roll of paper towels OR an old rag, permanent black ink pad (only if you have one),  1" brush to glue and paint (I like chip or bristle brushes), a few of your favorite glue sticks (large glue sticks will last you longer), 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.)

I hope to see you there!
