In this workshop, students of all levels will learn how to venture into more painterly territory with their art journals. Students will learn several ways to start a page spread. We will work back and forth between collage and color, building dimension in layers. There will be a focus on mark making and how to alter and personalize each element. We will use both common and unfamiliar supplies, including paint, crayons and markers to add painterly elements and explore color combinations that work every time. We will use stencils in a variety of ways, to create a composition, add dimension and help blend the page. Ultimately, we will create layers that add loads of depth to our journal.

** (From Student Level) This class will offer techniques and methods suitable for any level mixed media artist. We will use supplies in non-traditional ways and even advanced students will be inspired. Less experienced students will find step-by-step instruction suitable for all levels.

*** (From Workshop Type) We will work inside an Art Journal and cover a variety of different techniques that will allow the students to work across several page spreads. Although the class is full of process type work, each student should expect to complete a number of journal pages during two days.
