Learn to put creativity into everyday life with this fun journaling course! Create journal pages and embellish them with your own writing, pictures and design elements. You'll learn to draw a variety of small decorative pictures and use markers, pens, watercolour pencils, rubber stamps and ink to personalize your pages. Learn to make accordion books and hand–sewn bookbindings for journals. (These techniques work for memory books and small photo albums, too.) Add covers, pockets, page–marking ribbons and tags. The course includes lots of idea-starter tips to get you journaling happily. BONUS! All of the skills you learn will also work for making greeting cards, gift tags, wall art, hand-painted papers and more.
Journaling is a low–pressure way of kickstarting your imagination and gives you a quick and relaxing way to get a bit of healthy creativity into most days. This course blends fine art and craft and is perfect for both beginners and experienced artists. We'll do some basic bookbinding and collage, learn to cut rubber stamps and design multi–use pages. This is a course that helps you express your unique voice and vision.
Dig in to collage and add a new dimension to your creative life! Creating an evocative collage is all about learning to intuitively use colour, design, composition and texture. Explore the world of acrylic paints and mediums to create your own hand-painted papers. Then learn how to best use acrylic mediums and glues for adhering collage elements and adding layers. Combine painting with found collage elements to create dynamic works. Explore the qualities of different types of paper, compositional schemes, transparent layering, texture and more. Add a new dimension to your artistic practice by learning all about creating and applying collage elements! Collage is a fun and carefree way to find your artistic voice. Using few supplies or many, you'll quickly learn what you like and what you don't, what works for you and what needs to change. Three full days of exploration will allow us to create many works, large and small.
