Mixed Media Favorites Series
During my last Art Journaling Series, one of my students asked if we ever did a stand-alone technique class, as she’d be interested in a short time commitment. A lightbulb went off. Brilliant!
Bringing back a little “Mixed Media Club” and some experience teaching Art Journaling for the past number of years, here’s a new offering for folks brand new and experienced to this type of art.
You can take this as a 4-week series, learning a little something new each week. Or, pick and choose the projects that are of most interest to you. (we’ll cut you deal if you sign up for the whole thing, though!)
Each time we’ll meet we’ll spend 2.5 – 3 hours together and you’ll leave with a finished project or parts & papers to use in your own artwork.
PaperPalooza: July 2, 10:00 AM – 1 pm
You’ll get a stack of cool papers and be shown a number of ways to alter them through stamping, embossing, sanding, dripping alcohol inks, sprays, and texture tools. We’ll break out the CitraSolv and Never Dull and see what we can get out of the National Geographic pages, too. You’ll be playing with Deli Paper, Ricepaper, textured paper and whatever else I throw into the mix. Use the papers in your own collage, card making, art journaling, etc.
Mini Collage Collage: July 9, 10:00 AM – 1 pm
Using canvases that are 4″ and smaller, images from magazines & photographs, ephemera, 3-D objects, and a limited color palette, we’ll create 5-7 mini collages and then put them together to create a larger one. Collage Collage, get it?
STUDENTS SHOULD BRING: small items for collage including photographs, 3-D items, ephemera and copies of precious keepsakes like letters from your grandma.
The Big Hot Mess: Reductive Painting July 16, 10:00 AM – 1 pm
We will use almost every supply in the Studio. Using two 8″ x 10″ panels, we will stencil, stamp, drip, roll, texture, and whatever else I can think of. Then, after we get it to the indulgent level of wonderfulness, you’ll scream because I will make you cover up most of one of them. You’ll comply, will see, and be glad. I make my Art Journaling students do this and they always love the result.
Gel Printing – Adorned Journal: July 23, 10:00 AM – 1 pm .
Gel Printing is soooo addictive! And so much fun! We will spend the first 1.5 hours making beautiful printed papers with Deli Paper, regular paper, and acrylic paints among other fun things. Then we’ll clean up while our papers finish drying and prepare to adorn regular composition books into colorful journals! You will adhere your papers to the journal and dig through the Studio stash of beads and ribbon ending up with a Mixed Media Masterpiece for your deepest thoughts. STUDENTS SHOULD BRING: A Box of Unscented Baby Wipes and your Gelli Plate or Gel Press printing plate, if you have one, (to cut down on wait time.) You can take the chances on the notebook you’ll choose from our Studio Stash or bring one to ensure the right size.
In addition to any specialty items listed above, each week Students should bring:
- Your Art Journal (or start one as you’ll need a place to take notes and swipe excess paint)
- A small batch of ephemera meaningful to you – pictures, old stuff, copies of family handwriting, bits and baubles
- Favorite pens for scribbling, doodling, and embellishing
- If there’s a color paint or art supply you can’t live without, bring it, but we’ll have most everything you need.
Take all four (4) classes and save!!!
