Last week I went to Arlington, Texas to teach together with MaryBeth Shaw, Jodi Ohl and Gina Rossi Armfield an Art Journaling Live Class which was recorded and will be available as DVDs and Video Download at the end of November this year.

IΒ started with some Creative Icebreaker techniques and lot’s of visual and actual texture.

And it was fun to see what the amazing students created in this 1 1/2 hour with me.

All the while Aaron was being serious and filming everyone and everything πŸ˜‰

Here is Amy Jones, our wonderful producer and you can see Jeannine Stein the editor of Cloth Paper Scissors doing fun stuff with Jodi in the background.

And here is Jodi showing off her hands to proof she painted

My favorite part of the day was that after I was done with my teaching, I got to play along in all the other classes and below you see what I did in Jodi’s fantastic class …I changed her awesome whimsical birds and fish up a bit and out came: Botox fish – I love them- they crack me up πŸ™‚

I realize, I do not have a photo of Gina- grrr- but she was sitting right next to me

and she taught a really really wonderful watercolor class which makes me want to do more with watercolors!!!

And here we are – all four of us – relieved and happy that we made it- and super thankful for all the wonderful and talented students we spent time with on that day.

Mixed Media Circus Workshop at Darkroom Door in Berkeley Vale, Australia

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Of Living as an Artist, Mixed Media Workshop

After the workshop in Melbourne, Julie and I taught in Berkeley Vale at Darkroom Door, about 1 1/2 hours North of Sydney. My wonderful friend and awesome manufacturer Rachel Greig hosted us in her warehouse and classroom and it a great group rocking out the paint, art supplies and art journals!

Everyone was working for three day, creating covers, painting, stamping, stenciling, book binding – getting messy fingers and tables:) It was so much fun! I loved the class room with high tables and high top chairs, making it possible for everyone to choose to work standing up or sitting. Since I work standing up- this was a dream πŸ™‚

We will always have “I pet a kangaroo”, the dog on the tucker box, create you own at mΓ€ccas, don’t hesitate to mess up the table, fire alarms, Lemingtons, Anzac Biscuits and lot’s of laughter together. It was wonderful to spend those three days with you!!!

    I would love to take some of your classes. I enjoyed seeing all of the finished projects – especially the elephant designs. I collect elephants and I’m always looking for new stamps/stencils and ways to use them.
    the girl riding the elephant was a clever idea.
    thanks for sharing so many wonderful finished projects.

    Nat, you even managed to post different pics than Julie did.
    I really like the quote “when all else fails, join the circus”.
    It goes well with “not my monkeys, not my circus” in some way.
