April 29, 20172:00 pm - 6:00 pmMaster Art Express – Art Journaling
@
ArtiscapeDublin, Ohio
Imagine you could take a trip through Europe and at each stop one of the many masters of European art would materialize and invite you to explore their art to implement into your art journal. Let’s take this imaginary trip together and explore different European artists at each station, taking their artwork as an inspiration for mixed media techniques and colors. We will discuss why some things work and why some things don’t work and will solve the little "problems" that sometimes occur while creating art. Work with acrylic paints, acrylic inks, different tools and materials and gain a deeper knowledge about the versatility and possibilities of your art materials. Let the travel itself be part of the journey and take the elements of art in to push your own art journaling style just a notch further.

This workshop is part of the three day Artiscape event in Dublin, Ohio. Artiscape is an artistic event of more than 50 mixed media workshops presented by a select group of professional instructors. Come for the weekend or the afternoon. The goal is a fun, educational weekend among friends, old and new!

@
ArtiscapeDublin, OH
There is something so beautiful about a book – the cover, the spine, the paper, the typography and it makes a beautiful companion on a journey. Walk with Me and give an old and maybe discarded book a new colorful life. Learn fun stenciling, stamping and book altering techniques, how to draw when you can’t draw and use the book as a wonderful substrate to create a beautiful keepsake. Use acrylic paints, and inks and fun tools and techniques and be ready for a fun ride.
