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.

Paris Can Wait! Kelly and Friends Go Creating: An Immersive Art Adventure in Durfort, France June 11-18th, 2019

One of my sample journals for the week

Paris Can Wait! Kelly and Friends Go Creating: An Immersive Art Adventure at La Cascade in Durfort, France, June 11-18th, 2019

Travel sparks ideas and inspires new ways of seeing and making art. Having traveled back and forth across the U.S. last summer, I am eager for something different. When I discovered that there really is such a place as Montolieu or the Village of The Books, this bibliophile and collage artist started making plans. I'd like very much for you to come along.

Did I mention the waterfall behind the house?

In this truly one of a kind workshop, we will let the local colors, flora, fauna and other daily discoveries of a medieval artisan village, Durfort in Southern France, be our guide. 

Did I mention the art stores, bookshops, art museums? Those famous French flea markets? The Cathedral? All within driving distance.

We will begin our week by creating a hardcover journal from scratch. I love studio time, but I am also a big believer in learning from experience and being inspired by everything. So, we will take our art- making and inspiration beyond the inviting walls of  La Cascade and learn to capture the moment, gleaning ideas while on-the-go in beautiful Durfort. 

Our time together in France will be translated into a finished journal that, along with the memories of our time in France, will inspire our art for the rest of our lives.

Did I mention the Musée Toulouse-Lautrec?  A mere 70 minute drive away.

This will be an immersive experience like no other.
Before we travel, I will create a private Facebook group where we can get to know one another. I will also send lists of art, books, films, music and more that will prime you for our adventure. 

Art, adventure, creativity, inspiration and new friendships await you in beautiful Southern France. 

I hope you will join us.
