Art Journaling Twists and Techniques

  • This location is shown only to members

You don’t have to be an artist or writer to keep an art journal. This fun, no-pressure, class will unlock your creativity while you learn artistic techniques & experiment with different products designed to unleash your inner creative soul.  I'll show you how to use stamps and stencils to jump start your process.  We'll work with different prompts to explore different journaling styles.  Whether you're new to art journaling or looking to add some new techniques, come have fun in my home studio. All you need to bring is a journal to work in - either your own journal that you've already started, a book you want to alter, or a book designed for mixed media such as http://www.amazon.com/Strathmore-Visual-Journal--Mixed-Media/dp/B003YIZ0HI/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1394550071&sr=8-5&keywords=strathmore+visual+journal  (also available at Staples and Michaels).  You can watch lots of art journaling tutorials on my You Tube channel, to give you some ideas of what we'll be doing!  https://www.youtube.com/user/jsporn499

    I'm so sorry I missed the class! I really wanted to be there! Unfortunately, my aunt, who's been sick for a while, passed away, and I really needed to be with the family. I hope there will be other art journaling meetups soon! Looking to attend the recent scheduled meetups.

    Another great day spent with Jessica, in her studio, learning how to do the simplest things that take your art journal to a whole new level. Thanks again!

    Hi all - I sent out an email wondering if it would work for everyone to change the time to 2 - 5PM - I've heard from Ava, Hosanna and Sandra that it's ok - hoping to hear back from everyone else.

    Hi Denise and all who are attending - Please bring your own substrates to work on - journal, canvas, watercolor paper, etc. It should be sturdy enough for mixed media and at least 8.5 x 11.

  • Denise A.

    Are there any of our own supplies you would like us to bring, besides the paper or canvas?

    April 17

  • Ava S.

    Hi Jessica, count me in! OK to do this on a canvas? If so, any particular size you would recommend?

    April 6

    • Jessica S.

    Wish I could do this one, but it is just a bit too pricey.

      Everything depends on the activity itself. I just can't afford to pay $50 every time I try something new. Not sure what a FAIR price is -- just a bit pricey for me.

      I understand. I might, for the next one, do a pay what you can...

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
