  • TIME: 12pm - 4pm
  • LOCATION: Scrap Shack

One of the questions that I'm often asked is do I use themes? How do I start a page? What do I create the page about? In this workshop, you will learn how to translate every day moments into unique to you art journal pages.

No experience required. Bring a short handwritten list of favorite experiences, moments and memories. You will learn how to reflect these fragments of life in the form of image, color, shapes, line and text onto your pages. Create rich and deeply personal pages that are true to your own voice while learning new techniques and ideas.

Please note that we will begin the class by making a journal from scratch.

Supply List: apron, scissors, a small selection of favorite collage ephemera (think about reading this when choosing your images and papers), bone folder, cork back metal ruler, a full roll of paper towels OR old rags, any favorite mark making tools (I will have some to share) a container for your paint water, your favorite brushes to paint and glue with, a small container to clean your brushes (an old jar, etc...), a few of your favorite glue sticks (trust me when I say that large glue sticks will last you longer), 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.)

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

I've been teaching art for more than 20 years and making art all of my life. Some have told me that I live what David Lynch has called, "the Art Life." I'll share with you how I approach art making and how I view art and life. We'll brainstorm where ideas come from and how to keep them flowing.

The goal in this class is to work through a series of creative exercises that will get your creativity flowing. Learn how to start (and finish) pages. Learn how to work through creative block. I truly believe that inspiration is everywhere and I've used this mentality to keep my creativity flowing. There is no secret other than to do the work. But how do you work when you feel stuck? How do you create pages that are unique to you? How do you glean ideas from the world around you and make them your own? Be prepared to get messy, be inspired and explore your own creativity on your pages.

Please note that the ideas we are exploring also translate to other art mediums and fields.

Supply List: your journal, an apron, scissors, a small selection of favorite collage ephemera (think about reading this when choosing your images and papers), bone folder, cork back metal ruler, a full roll of paper towels OR old rags, any favorite mark making tools (I will have some to share) a container for your paint water, your favorite brushes to paint and glue with, a small container to clean your brushes (an old jar, etc...), a few of your favorite glue sticks (trust me when I say that large glue sticks will last you longer), 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.)
