Wild Winter Colorful Journals

With Laura Edwards

Thursday, February 6 - March 19   3:00-5:00p 

$240 / $219 early bird pricing through 1/15

Some of us like to write in journals to record random thoughts or events that have special meaning in our lives. Others like to keep travel journals or create themed books to commemorate those special times. Some of us simply like to do a little art every day in a book or journal. If you write or sketch every day or occasionally, or haven’t considered it until now, but love keeping journals, this fun-filled workshop will take your journals to a whole new level.

For 6 weeks we’ll explore new techniques and inspirational materials while we play with color, texture, pattern, and form. We’ll paint, print, stamp, cut, tear, fold, and collage your pages into intricate multi-layered surfaces, making each page a one-of-a-kind ‘canvas’ for your words, images, drawings, or photographs.

Stimulate your creativity and launch your journals onto a whole new path. Open to all skill levels.

In this relaxed, 6 week workshop, we will explore a variety of drawing techniques and ideas including observational drawing, understanding basic drawing techniques, and mindfulness. Through a variety of projects and exercises, we will gain an understanding of the various drawing materials, how to arrange a composition, and the variety of lines and tones used to bring a drawing to life.

 

Students will receive a series of drawing prompts and exercises designed to cultivate awareness, explore personal narrative, and navigate creative blocks. In addition to step-by-step instruction and demonstrations, students will also receive individual guidance and feedback to support their creative goals. Students may choose to keep an art journal or sketchbook for exploration during and between classes.

 

Prior drawing experience is not required as this is a beginner level course; the only requirement is a willingness to explore and experiment. The workshop will advance each student's basic drawing skills and techniques with an emphasis on strengthening and promoting self-expression, creativity, and artistic confidence.

 

A materials list will be provided and items may be purchased separately or through the instructor.
