Jumping with… Tonia Jenny – A CJS Interview Series

So happy to share with you today a special video interview I did with one of our Creative JumpStart 2020 teachers: Tonia Jenny. This is Tonia’s first year with CJS and because I have known her a few years already, I am very excited that she is joining our awesome lineup this year.

A little about Tonia: Tonia was an editor for many years for North Light craft and art books where I met her, before she started her own editorial, writing, and life coaching biz. And of course she is also a super talented and versatile mixed media artist, who is very attuned to self exploration and also seeing the potential in everyday materials and items. I think you will love seeing her talk about her creative philosophy and also you may find it inspiring to hear how she approaches tackling new tools, media, and artistic challenges, because hey, Creative JumpStart is all about having fun while trying some new things :) And… she talks about the most creative job application I have probably ever heard about. You don’t want to miss it LOL

Please enjoy this Jumping with… Tonia Jenny Interview!

Thank you Tonia!

You can learn more about Tonia Jenny here on her website and also here on Facebook and Instagram.

Are you ready to Jump into something new in January? Sign up TODAY for Creative JumpStart 2020 and get 31 lessons from 31 Super Hero Artists like Tonia Jenny. Learn, have fun, and challenge yourself in the New Year! Hope to see you in the CJS classroom soon :)

Announcing Creative JumpStart 2020: On sale today!!!

I’m excited today to announce Creative JumpStart (CJS) 2020! What is CJS? It’s a one-of-a-kind online mixed media workshop, now in it’s 9th year, designed to kick your creativity into high gear throughout January 2020. And it goes on sale TODAY!!!

With the Creative JumpStart workshop you will learn techniques, discover new materials, and connect with other artists and crafters. Learn more HERE.

I’m proud to be the founder of Creative JumpStart and one of those artists, called “JumpStarters.” See for yourself what it’s all about:

Creative JumpStart 2020! from Nathalie Kalbach on Vimeo.

How does it work? Throughout January participants get access to 31 downloadable videos from 31 featured artists. With easy-to-digest 10 minute lessons, you get over 5 hours of video content. You can also participate in our online classroom with the other “Jumpers” and even share your creations in our classroom gallery. There will be product giveaways from our sponsors too. So much fun!

And today only, you can get CJS20 for just $40USD. You better hurry though, this Cyber Monday Sale ends tonight, December 2 at 11:59pmEST. Sign up HERE.

The Theme this year is “Super Power”. There is no doubt about it: art can be beautiful, personal, and really fun to make. It can capture a once-in-a-lifetime moment, feeling, or idea. And artists can influence everything from the walls of a home to world events. If you think about it, creativity really is a Super Power! Whether you are creating simply for the joy it brings you or creating to share your ideas with others, that is a pretty awesome pursuit.

So we asked our artists: What is your artistic Super Power? Is it a tool or technique that helps you achieve your unique style? Is it a way of thinking, organizing, or planning that leads up to a finished piece? Is it something else entirely? What Super Power do you use to create?

They have created video lessons that explain and show their artistic Super Power in action. They take us step-by-step through their creative process and signature art making style. Creative JumpStart 2020 is this collection of mixed media lessons to help us learn about different artistic Super Powers and how to use them in our own artmaking.

Find out all the details and sign up TODAY:

    Hi Nathalie,
    I have an idea can you make a creative jumpstart session that special for us to make decoration for our art studio (maybe something that pure for decoration en maybe also something that for storage ?) en also how to make our mixed media art that we usually do in our journal can be posted somehow on the wall maybe even at our living room / dining room or bedroom??

    Thanks
    En greeting

      Hi Au Mo – so glad Creative JumpStart has you thinking of all the ways that you can be creative, in your art journal, in your studio, home and beyond. We hope you do flex your artistic muscles and try some of the projects from 2019 that happen in your art journal, encourage you to embellish elements of your home with your own style, and play with pieces that can hang on the wall of any space in your home. The CJS19 My Home is My Castle theme is all about exploring those super fun and yummy mixed media activities. We also hope to see you next year when CJS takes us somewhere completely different, and challenges us once again with a new theme. I know our artist teachers will again JumpStart our creativity :)

The Theme this year is “My Home is My Castle”. We’re taking Creative JumpStart into the home this year and creating mixed media projects that celebrate what Home means to us. Do you feel at home wherever there is something cozy and homemade? Does your home decor and home style tell your story? Is it where you are from or where you spent your childhood? Are you a part of a unique local community that is special to you? Whether it is the objects, a place, or the people that surround you, there is no wrong answer or approach here. These projects are a little celebration of our own personal definition of Home. Enjoy step-by-step instruction from our artists as they share with you their notion of Home through their signature art making style. There will be lots of projects that are art journal pages, and also some really cool home decor ideas and other unique projects that our artists have dreamed up. It’s time to make Your Home YOUR Castle :)
