Countdown to CREATE Seattle Workshops

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Mixed Media Workshop, Workshops


Only a couple more days till the CREATE Mixed Media Retreat in Seattle starts.

I am teaching four classes there:

ART JOURNAL CLASS: It’s All About Layers – Friday, October 24 • 9am-4pm

only 4 seats left!


Create depth and dimension by adding several layers with different acrylic paint and other media to achieve intriguing art journal pages. Learn about different media and playfully explore how to express yourself in your art journal. It’s all about the layers—so come and join me!

TECHNIQUE CLASS: Acrylics Demystified – Saturday, October 25 • 9am-4pm


Explore all kinds of different Liquitex Acrylic Media – from Dumbledore to Merlin, from Acrylic Paints to Acrylic Inks, from String Gel to Pouring Medium, from Modeling Paste to Stucco and other fun stuff. Learn their magic– and put an end to mystery on how to use these amazing helpers in your Mixed Media and/or Art Journaling projects. Learn not only how to use Acrylic Media and when to use them but also put your own spell into 3 abstract canvases during the class. You will for sure have as much fun waving your new magic acrylic wand in the future as Nathalie!

CANVAS CLASS: Texture Galore Canvas – Saturday, October 25 • 6-9pm


In this workshop you will create a stunning and unique canvas that will be a wonderful home decor item. Learn how to create dimension and texture with tissue paper, items of daily life, acrylic paint, lace, burlap, and gesso. Learn how to reveal the interesting and eye-catching texture with acrylic paints, art bars and acrylic inks and add some fun stamping techniques on top.

TECHNIQUE CLASS: Texture Heaven – Sunday, October 26 • 9am-12noon


Create wonderful texture pages with mono printing, stenciling and stamping techniques, encrust them with different Embossing Media and bind them together in a beautiful tactile art journal.

There are many amazing classes at the CREATE Event in Seattle – check it out and sign up here! I hope I will see you there.

Have a great day!

Art Fusion at the InkPad in NYC – Photos

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Mixed Media Workshop


Last week my friend Birgit Koopsen visited me from The Netherlands. Birgit and I have been teaching together in Europe quite often and last year we organized our first Art Fusion Event in The Netherlands. This year our event was hosted by The InkPad in New York City and we had a great time with our students at Westbeth last sunday.


Birgit taught a Mixed Media Canvas Class using Acrylic Paints and I taught an Altered Book Class using Acrylic Inks, Paints and Markers. Birgit worked with her new wonderful stamps and I was able to see my new Stencils in action :)


It was so much fun. It was a very colorful day and we had a great time with our super talented students!


Look at all those gorgeous images they draw in their altered book class!


Thank you to The InkPad for having us and thank you to Liquitex for providing the acrylic media for the class! I am missing Birgit – but who knows – we might be up for something next year ;)


If you live near or in NYC – why don’t you join me next Friday, October 10th 2014 from 7pm-9.30 pm at The InkPad for an Art Journal Class – Artvergnugen with Photo Transfers


There are only a couple seats left – come and join us. I will show you some fun ways to do Photo Transfers and how to incorporate them in your Art Journal.

You can see all other in-person workshops I am teaching this year here.

Have a gorgeous day
