M207 - Soul Stories ~ Vintage Art Journaling

DeAnne Olguin Williamson
9:00 - 4:30
Wednesday - April 26

[back to quicklinks]
$ 150  

In this class you will learn how to journey within to discover your own soul stories and personal expression. Art journaling is a way to connect more deeply with your truth. In your art journal, you will combine writing with art in a way that will feel more meaningful than doing just one or the other. Art journaling in a group atmosphere creates deep connections and heartfelt support. Spontaneity is the key factor for creating authentic expression. We will collage, stamp, write, paint, layer, drip, stencil and draw and there will be a few surprises along the way. You will learn how to alter a vintage book to use as your art journal. We will also use vintage magazines, vintage photos, dress patterns and old newspapers as elements in our art journal. We will uncover our stories and express them visually.

$20 materials fee paid to instructor at beginning of class includes:
Vintage book to be altered as art journal and vintage ephemera.

• Acrylic paints, container for water, paper towels or/and rags
