The Story Within: Turning Life into Visual Journal Pages
Designing Letters in Mar Vista, CA

Workshops are open to the public.
This fresh, new workshop teaches a variety of NEW ideas involving collage, creative processing, self expression, composition, design, layering, painting and much, much more.

My workshops are always about inspiring creativity, generating ideas and learning how to see. The ideas can be translated into a variety of art forms. Use your art journal "as is" or for a springboard of inspiration for other art forms and living a creative life!
Please note there is a small supply list.
More details will be sent upon registration.
Beginners to advanced are welcome in ALL of the classes.
Interested in signing up? Questions? Please email Kelly for more info!

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.

The class fee includes a vast array of mediums and materials to complete the necessary project. It is well known that I do not travel light to any of my classes. I will be bringing such things are: 

  • all materials necessary to complete the project (handmade paper, decorative paper, board, glue, etc...)
  • bookbinding supplies (thread, awl, needles)
  • rubber stamps 
  • ink pads 
  • decorative tape

  • pens and markers
  • gel medium
  • collage ephemera and much, much more.

I do not travel light to my classes at all.


The Story Within: Turning Life into Visual Journal Pages

There is a wealth of ideas within you! 

We've all been told that we have a, "story within." How do we tell that story visually? How do we take the mundane and make it extraordinary? How do you tell your story on paper?

Come and jump start your artwork! Combine layers of paper, paint and pen in new and exciting ways. I'll be reaching deep into my bag of tips, tricks and techniques to share a wealth of my latest, freshest and most inspiring ideas.

I'm always working and experimenting with new ways to gather my thoughts, generate ideas and translate them to art making. I am extremely excited to share these latest offerings with you!

Supply list: journal, an apron, baby wipes, scissors, a small selection of favorite collage ephemera (think about reading this when choosing your images and papers), metal ruler, bone folder, a full roll of paper towels OR old rags, a container for your paint water, your favorite paint brushes,  a few of your favorite glue sticks (please trust me when I say that large glue sticks will last you longer. I always have two or three 40 gram glue sticks in my journal bag and that's more than enough for a long weekend. You WILL go through the smaller glue sticks in MINUTES), 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!
