Awake your creative spirit and feed your soul within in this creativity workshop exploring artistic play through creative, spiritual, inspiration. Students will learn the process of altered books, art journaling, & the power of words by repurposing a children’s book. We will experiment and play with several mixed media techniques - acrylic paints, collaging, stamping, ink pens, stencils, and much more. Nurture your creative spirit in a relaxed atmosphere of refreshment, refinement, and rejuvenation by giving your imagination permission to play! No art, drawing, or painting experience necessary to enjoy this class – only a willingness to say – “what if?.
