Art Journaling at the Speed of Life with Pam Carriker June 2 & 3

Carrikerjournaling

With Pam Carriker
Thursday and Friday, June 2 and 3
9:00am – 4:00pm
(lunch break: 12:00pm – 1:00pm)
Are you still unsure if Visual Journaling is for you? Do you think you’re missing the point of keeping an Art Journal? Visual Journals are a valuable tool and play a key role in an artists creative process. In this workshop you’ll be immersed in the Visual Journaling Process beginning with that often-intimidating blank white page by creating a variety of backgrounds using acrylic inks and stencils.  From there your journal will morph into unique pages as you add your artist mark to every element on every page, and learn to manage color using color wheel stencils. With an emphasis on listening to your authentic inner voice, you’ll learn to hear what your journal is telling you, taking clues from what is already on the page and letting it unfold as a part of a process, not a pre-planned design. We will cover fundamental art elements that will propel you forward in all areas of mixed media art. Fee: $200

Misty Foster presents:

ART JOURNALING  WORKSHOPS – November 2 & 9

Art Journals are an alternative to the traditional sketchbook.  In journals, you can do so much more than sketch!  This workshop is designed to allow you to be uninhibited and create freely in a fun environment.     We will work with acrylics, watercolor, ink, collage, permanent markers,  various papers, stencils and more as we walk through the process of layering images into a one-of-a-kind art journal (provided).   See more about this class HERE (freshpaints.com/classes).
See more of Misty’s ART JOURNALS here, and check out more ideas on her PINTEREST page.
