What is an Art Journal? or … When the Why is clear the How is easy!

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Journal, Workshops

Art Journal …What is this thing? Let me try to explain in this video in my thick dscherman accent 😉

I art journal for different reasons:

  • to try out now techniques or art supplies
  • to get me creatively into swing before I paint
  • to get emotions and thoughts visually out
  • to try something that I will later apply in one form or the other on a canvas

So an art journal for me is a safe creative playground 😉

Now that you know

Photos of my Workshops in Oklahoma City

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Mixed Media Workshop

I had a blast the past weekend teaching at My Heart’s Fancy in Oklahoma City. I taught “Make Your Mark” a mono printing class on friday and “Artvergnugen” – ArtJournaling as well as “Play-Transform Mixed Media Collage” on Sunday as full day classes. I had a super enthusiastic and fun group of students willing to dive full force in all the yummy color mess – thank you girls!!!

Thank you also to Maura for being such an amazing host and Lisa for being such a big help and sweet spirit! And thank you to Liquitex for providing such an amazing amount of different yummy acrylic paints and media for us !

    We had a blast and learned so much in such a short time. This has given me confidence to work far more successfully with some of the Liquitex gels and varnishes. It also pushed me to take my work in a much less “safe”and infinitely more interesting direction. Nathalie, you are a wonderful teacher! Please come back to Oklahoma again.

For In Person workshops you find all information here http://nathaliesstudio.com/in-person-workshops/ – the Summer and Fall classes will be listed soon.
