Artiscape 2017 in Ohio – Photos

Last week I went to Ohio to teach at Artiscape, a 3-Day Mixed Media Workshop Event. I taught three classes “Artvergnugen- Artjournaling” “Walk With Me – Altered Book” and “Master Art Express – Artjournaling” and the classes were filled with such delightful and talented students- I had so much fun!

Look at all the smiling faces and colorful backgrounds in the Artvergnugen class. (Artvergnugen – the pleasure in creating Art :))

In “Walk With Me” we gave old books a new live using their initial book soul – loved the different takes of students incorporating bits and pieces of the book to be part of the art like the title or drawings in the book.

Oh and Joe – I still owe you a quarter for saying John …maybe next time? ;)

In “Master Art Express” we took the Orient Express to stop at different stations and meet some Master Artists and got inspired for some out of the box approaches for art journaling.

We trully made the dull looking hotel conference rooms sparkle with color…and laughter :)

I truly loved every single moment of the classes and in between the classes there was a lot of great opportunities to stock up on art supplies for mixed media work at Joe Rotella’s store and also the vendor fair. Where else do you find a bucket full of “appendages” LOL

It was also great to catch up with some artist friends like Jen Crossley and MaryBeth Shaw and to meet some other wonderful teachers, like Glenda Miles, Cheryl Strait and Cindi Bison-Mc Gee.

And ohhh looksie some of my RubberMoon Stamps in the store – wohooo.

It was wonderful to meet Klara again who was also at my workshop at Color Crush two months ago – always the best to see students again !

It was a relaxed and great event and I hope I can come back some time.

Thank you to all students who come and made this such a wonderful experience and thank you to Lisa and Joe for having me and putting together such an amazing event. It was truly an Artiscape!

If you missed out on this event and would like to take a class with me – check out my In-Person-Class listing to see where I am at in the next couple weeks.

Have a gorgeous day!

Teaching at Artiscape in Dublin, Ohio April 28-30

I am teaching 3 Mixed Media Classes at Artiscape alongside with 21 other instructors April 28-30th in Dublin Ohio. You can choose between 48 different workshops and I hope I will see some of you there. Those events are always some of my favorite to teach at because of the size and the amount of likeminded peers you will meet and be around. There is something truly invigorating and inspiring to have so many creative people gathered in one spot. Here are the classes I am teaching:

April 28 – Fri @ 12:30 pm5:30 pm

It starts the moment you sit down, an experience that is distinctly art journaling. A quick exhilaration, a sense of control, the art media’s surprising responsiveness as if they were simply an extension of you. There is a word for this creative experience: Artvergnugen! Artvergnugen is what makes your journal a piece of art. Join me and play with different art media and supplies; discover fun layering techniques with stamps, stencils and acrylic paints. Let’s talk about colors, composition, love-it or list-it to truly reveal your own style, and learn techniques, tips and tricks to take your art journaling further and turn it into Artvergnugen.

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!

April 29 – Sat @ 2:00 pm6:00 pm

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.

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.

Cannot come to Artiscape, but want to take a class with me? Check out my In-Person- Classes Page – where I am constantly updating where I will be teaching in the next couple months. For example, I am teaching with my sweet friend Birgit Koopsen in New York City as well as at an event near Syracuse, NY and I am right now finalizing a couple more in the US and outside of the US :) I love teaching in person and I hope to meet you (again!)
