DIY Art Supplies

Monday eve, October 7, 2019

Who says you need expensive tools and supplies to make great art and have fun? In this class, I’ll show you all my artist tricks on how I save money creating my own stamps, stencils, texture tools, alcohol inks and more! Creating your own tools not only saves money, but, more importantly, it is integral to your own unique journey as an artist! Even if you’ve been at this for years or are just starting out, making your own tools means making your own marks and finding your own unique voice! Break the mold! Make stencils, stamps, and texture tools that are unique to YOU. The second half of class will include a chance to play in our art journals with our new stencils, stamps & tools! I’ll show you how to create some fun, vibrant pages and how to layer and work with your new goodies!


Journal Jumpstarts

Tuesday eve, October 8, 2019

Feeling stuck, in a creative rut, or need a little "boost" to help get your creativity going? Maybe you just need some time to relax, learn new techniques and breath life into your journals or other art projects? This workshop is great for all levels and anyone who'd like to get a little messy & explore new media in their art journals (and beyond! These techniques work great on canvas, too!) . We'll drip, rip, collage, scrape, splatter, spray, smudge & smear using the gelli plate, stencils, spray ink, oil pastels, acrylic paints & inks to create a variety of textures, backgrounds and also cover a few simple concepts such as color, contrast & balance to create some dynamic pages!

 

Face Your Fears

Wednesday, October 9, 2019

 

Drawing faces--you either love it or you hate it! I'm here to show you how to LOVE it! I can show you how to create easy, simple, lovely faces in just a few steps. I have LOTS of tricks to help you create faces that you'll be proud of and want to create again and again. We'll start in our art journals, practicing face proportions and we'll also create gorgeous collage paper to add to our portraits. 


Beeswax Bird Journal

Thursday, October 10, 2019

It's the best of both worlds: beeswax collage and book making! We'll explore how to create a dimensional, layered & textured beeswax collage canvas cover using a variety of techniques & media. We'll build up the collage with color, ephemera & lightweight collage items using beeswax to adhere our items, create texture & seal the cover artwork. Then we'll bind our journal using watercolor paper, recycled silk sari ribbon & textured paper using an easy, new-sew technique.
