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.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at EGorey99@sbcglobal.net

Thanks for stopping by!

10 March 2010 journal page

I am teaching my popular new pen class this Saturday at Zinnia in So Pasadena. For those of you whom have asked about it here's some things that we do in the class-

1. We explore a plethora of pens. The class comes with a huge 18 page handout that has detailed information on a variety of my favorite pens, important info on the pens and what they do. You also get to play with the pens hands on.

2. Collage prompts! Yes, we do some collage techniques (remember, my classes are never just "one" thing. I like to pack them with info) and I then give you journal prompts for those pages.

3. Journal Prompts! Bring your journal to class (or use the paper that I provide) and we will explore the pens ON the pages in a variety of ways.

4. Writing! Yes, I will demonstrate and let you experiment with some of my favorite ways to add text to the page. No, it is NOT a calligraphy class (those of you who know me know that I lack the discipline and desire to be a calligrapher), think of it as more like urban handwriting.

5. Did I mention a wee bit of painting and layering? Using paint, paper and pens? Yup, that's included too.

6. Fun? Did I tell you it's FUN? Trust me, it is.

I pack a lot into the class and I keep you busy. I also bring a ton of pens (I don't ever travel light). If you have questions, you can email me. To sign up, please contact the store asap as space is limited. I have the class coming up twice in the next month: Zinnia on the 3rd and the Art Bar on the 11th. I'll also be traveling and teaching it in No Ca, CO, MA and OR this year.

I love this page, especially its depth.
I took the class with Jeane.
I went home with more pens.
I love those pens.
I still need more.

Sandy said...

This page is great. I love the image and esp. the heart.

I agree that everyone should take this class. You don't know how lucky you are if you're in the area and can attend a live in person class. I would take every class you taught if I were close enough.

I know you're class will be lots of fun.
