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 workshops both in person and online, things for sale, 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!

Radiant Color: Building your Color Toolbox

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.

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.

I do not travel light to my classes at all.









Radiant Color: Building your Color Toolbox 
  
“Color directly influences the soul. Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the hammers, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another purposively, to cause vibrations in the soul.” -Wassily Kandinsky

Oh, color, how do I love thee?

Color makes artwork come to life! Let's learn how to play with color!

Color impacts us every day, in every aspect of our lives. Color creates depth (Helllooo, Monet!) Color stimulates (tell me how you feel about yellow.) Color influences us (What do you think of using red and green together in 2020 vs what did an artist like Van Gogh think of using those colors together?) 

Push past reaching for the same old colors that you love and learn how to expand your color vocabulary. Create work that is vivid and rich. Transform your palette and how you think about color.

The work of Matisse, Van Gogh, Turner, Mary Blair, Monet, O'Keeffe, and many more will be discussed.

Supply list: *your journal with 4 to 6 pages already collaged with one main image and 3 snippets of background elements. You will be sent various examples/ideas upon signing up, a very small selection of favorite collage ephemera (think about reading this when choosing your images and papers), an apron, baby wipes, scissors, metal ruler, a full roll of paper towels OR old rags, a container for your paint water, your favorite paint brushes, your favorite glue stick (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!
