This free classroom is part of our Stroll Challenge, a 30 day challenge beginning on May 10th, 2017 and culminating in the release of my new book Artful Adventures in Mixed Media: Techniques Inspired by Observation and Experience on June 8, 2017! Here you will find several tutorials (including Special Guest tutorials), a place for sharing, a community environment, and Artful Adventures book giveaways.
What is the Stroll Challenge? Go on an Artful Adventure with me! Find inspiration by taking a “Stroll Through The Hood” and observing the details of the world around you. Anyone can join in on the fun by following our list of daily prompts. Each day you will have a new word to inspire you. Go for a stroll outside, snap a photo of something that you feel illustrates the word of the day, and build a collection of visual material to inspire your artwork, art journaling, and mixed media projects. Along the way you’ll discover things about your Hood that you may have never noticed before, and you’ll learn to find inspiration just outside your door. Use #ArtfulAdventures on social media and share your photos and the projects you were inspired to make.
Sign up to access the FREE classroom and join me on my #ArtfulAdventures as I show you how I transform my prompt-inspired photos into artwork on the days listed in the schedule below. Enjoy informative and exciting project tutorials by our Special Guests. Share your photos in the daily lesson prompts and see what others are observing in their Hoods. Comment and discuss with a whole bunch of people who are taking the challenge with you. You will also have the chance to win a free copy of my new book Artful Adventures in Mixed Media.
Want to learn more? The Artful Adventures: Stroll Challenge is just a taste of what you will find in my book. In it I share the many methods that make mixed media accessible to everybody, no matter their skill level, including how observations and experiences can be turned into works of art. I give practical guidelines and oodles of examples of how I find inspiration, how I gather and keep my ideas in sketchbooks, journals and photos, and what materials go on the journey with me in an Art-on-the-Go kit. You will find techniques and step-by-step instructions for projects – stencils, layering, collage, textured painting, mono-printing, photo manipulation, and more – to ensure that your Artful Adventures continue!
