Splash of Color – Art Journaling Workshop

Join Nathalie for a 2 1/2 day Art Journaling Class with a big focus on technique and color.  This is a start-to-finish class where you will build a unique and colorful art journal from scratch and bind it all together in the end.  Starting with blank white paper, we will fill those pages using a variety of mixed media techniques including mono printing, image transfers, mixing stencils and stamps, collage and the creation of colorful backgrounds.  We will add vibrant splashes of color throughout using acrylic paints, markers, wax bars, watercolor and inks.  I will show you my favorite tips and tricks to finish up art journal pages and finally an easy way to bind your art journal together to complete the creation.  Embrace your personal style and let’s make a splash!

Master Art Express – Art Journaling

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.
