Workshop Photos of Transfer, Trace, Transform

Last Saturday I hosted my workshop Transfer, Trace, Transform at home and I loved having a wonderful intimate group of 6 talented Ladies coming from Maryland, Connecticut and New York.

The dining room area was transformed into a workshop area

It was so wonderful seeing how the workshop techniques came to alive

And slowly a creative mess was made :)

It is really super fun to teach a small group

Loved seeing all the transfer techniques in their art journals

We covered quite bit of techniques

and here are some more pages

and pattern fun !

Nothing better than a colorful Saturday

There was a lot of swooning over James Dean …I mean …of course

and after a pizza break and the tiniest cupcakes you have every eaten

things got pretty elaborate

So much fun! Cannot wait for the next workshop at home!

Probably coming up in Spring or Summer . I am taking a bit of a break next year from traveling and teaching in person to take care of some “projects”  :)  but I am teaching right now a fun BYO – Built Your Own Art Journal– online and more online workshops are to come to come.

      Niles came down for a bit- he is a social cat- Bobby Pretzel is funny enough a bit shy of people and was kind of hiding on the staircase but was spied once in a while :)

    Thanks for posting the pics, Nat. Such a fun weekend, and great group of ladies. I can’t wait to come back again, as long as James Dean shows up. I plan to have lots of fun with your tracing technique, and I’ll probably see you in those on-line workshops. And, what a loveley hostess you are.

ArtRulesWorkshopNat

Let’s explore several master artists and get inspired by their artwork and techniques to create wonderful and unique art journal pages. Whether it be the Impressionist’s amazing color combinations or some of the Surrealist’s fun collage techniques, there are many different Master Artists whose skills can serve as a starting point for your own artwork. Find out what you like and what works for you. Learn about opacity and layering, colors, troubleshooting, mixing materials, making your own tools, creating backgrounds and patterns. We will work with acrylic paints, inks, markers, wax bars and other paint media to create dimension and texture. We will make the most of stencils, stamps, mono printing plates and generic tools to make our own mark. Get ready to Rule Your Art Journal!

Registration open now


Hope you enjoyed the peek – wishing you an amazing day!

My part of the class is up first in the morning:

Nathalie Kalbach: Art Journaling In Depth

Learn how to add interest and an important spark to your art journal with textures and layers. Nathalie Kalbach shows how to create visual and actual texture using paint, gesso, and tools, plus techniques such as sgraffito and collage layering. Texture and layers are important design elements that are easy to produce, and they can communicate a variety of messages, emotions, thoughts, and perspectives. Let Nathalie show you how to go in depth!
