Service Description

Join me in this brand new art journaling adventure! As you may know, art journaling is my passion. I find such joy in transforming empty pages into reservoirs of memory and beauty. I have so many juicy ideas for your art journal -- let’s create some magic together! Together we’ll explore what it means to keep an art journal, and how to create an art journal spread from start to finish. As we add all the components that make up a page, we’ll take time to be mindful of the little moments of serendipity that happen in our art journals...sometimes they do seem truly “enchanted!” We’ll be using a variety of supplies -- everything from watercolor to gesso and collage, distress inks, etc., and everything is provided! Bring a journal if you already have one you’re using, or I will have them available for you to purchase. If you have supplies you’d like to use, bring them! Each class will be different -- there are so many fun mixed-media techniques to explore! So whether you sign up for a single class or do all of them, you’ll be learning something different each time. This class takes place on the following Thursdays -- July 18, and August 1, 15, and 29. Journal not included, but I will have some available to purchase for $10. What you use for your art journal is largely a matter of preference, but I can make a few recommendations if this is your first one. Popular sizes are anywhere between 6 in x 8 in to 8 in x 11 in. I use an A5 notebook which is about 5.8 in x 8.3 in. Papers range widely, you just want paper that can handle dry and wet media. Below are links to some good ones. *Ranger The Crafters Workshop Creative Journal Small (5x8), zzzz-s, Multi-Colour *Strathmore 500 Series Visual Mixed Media Journal, 5.5"x8" Vellum, Wire Bound *Strathmore Paper (566-5 500 Series Hardbound Mixed Media Art Journal, 5.5"x8.5" There are so many to choose from, a good general guideline is to look for mixed-media paper -- beyond that, it's up to you!
