Kelly Kilmer
9:00 - 4:30
Wednesday April 5

[back to quicklinks]
$ 150  

Art journaling is about discovery and self expression. Your journal is your safe place to explore, express and experiment. It's your place to get lost as you repeatedly find yourself between the layers of paper, paint and pen.


In this unique workshop, you will learn new ways to approach your pages using paper, paint and pen. Learn how to push yourself out of your creative comfort zone. You will create cohesive pages that are completely unique to you.


Here are just some of the things that this class will cover:
-Techniques to layer paint and paper.
-Ways of putting colors together (there is no such thing as mud!)
-Ideas for adding line, shape and text.
-Journaling to express and experiment.
-Lettering tips and tricks.
-Self Expression
-Creative Courage
-How to push past creative block.
-Where to find and glean ideas that you can translate to journal pages.
-How to find images and papers to suit your tastes.
and much, much more.

Please bring your journal to class (email me if you have any questions) as well as the small supply list below. 

I am known for not traveling light. That means I will be bringing my favorite art supplies to share with you: acrylics, gel medium, stencils, pens, markers, rubber stamps, ink pads and some collage material.

Supply list: a journal or paper to work on, an apron, scissors, a selection of favorite collage ephemera (think about reading this when choosing your images), bone folder, cork back metal ruler, roll of paper towels OR an old rag, permanent black ink pad (if you have one), 1" brush to glue and paint (I like chip or bristle 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.)
