$ 90  

Where do we start when we put pen to paper? How do we translate what is in our heads to our visual art journal pages? How do we combine the visual with the written word?

Learn to combine paper, paint and pen to create visually expressive and unique journal pages. In this class, you will learn a plethora of layering techniques using not only your pens and markers but also paint, paper and more. Think that you know there is to putting your heart onto paper? Think again. I first developed this class to challenge myself and now I'm challenging you. Bring your journal and the supplies listed below (I will have plenty of art supplies to share as I don't travel light) and be prepared to spill out onto the page.

Supply list to bring to class:
 a journal, an apron, scissors, a small selection of favorite collage ephemera (think about reading this when choosing your images and papers), bone folder, cork back metal ruler, a full roll of paper towels OR old rags, permanent black ink pad (if you have one), a container for your paint water, 1" brush to glue and paint (I like chip or bristle brushes) as well as a few, smaller, detailed brushes, a few of your favorite glue sticks (large glue sticks will last you longer), roll of waxed paper OR an old catalog or magazine to glue on (if you don't want to use all of your waxed paper for this.)

 

 


 

Most of the required supplies for your classes can be pre-ordered from Collage. They will be ready and waiting for you to pick up when you arrive at the retreat. For further info and to place your order, contact:
