I am very happy to announce that I will be returning to Arizona to teach NEW workshops at The Occasional Artist in Glendale. I'm VERY excited about teaching there.
Interested in signing up? Please contact The Occasional Artist at 623-847-2215.
The samples are in the store now!
So often we are after messy, layered, honest and rich pieces of art. That's what this class is about, putting ourselves together on the pages, revealing tiny bits of ourselves, piecing ourselves together with layers of tape, paint and paper. Prepare to get messy as you learn a variety of new mixed media techniques. This book can be a deeply personal journey or a book of luscious, playful layers. There is something for everyone in this class.
Supply list: an apron, scissors, a selection of favorite collage ephemera (think about reading this when choosing your images), bone folder, cork back metal ruler, roll of paper towels OR an old rag, permanent black ink pad (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.)
SATURDAY FEBRUARY 27th:
Inner Voice: A Conversation in Art Journaling
In this special all day workshop, not only will you construct a new and unusual journal with pages that flip, fold and pull out in ways you never thought possible, but you will dive deep onto the pages. You will combine layers of paper, paint and more to form your own artistic voice on the page. Learn how to push, pull and coax ideas on the page. Learn how to express yourself with layers of paper, paint, pens, stencils and much, much more. You will have a conversation in color, pattern, shape, design, text, texture and more using mixed mixed techniques on the pages of your new journal.
