Groovy Grunge Workshop
Create bright, bouncy, colorful art journal pages full of energy! Loosen up your art journaling style and incorporate a rainbow of colors with techniques for combining acrylics, ephemera & all of that paper you collect from everyday life.
We'll generate ideas to bring into your journal, prepare a hardback book for mixed media journaling and dive in to those scrumptious pages. Create bright & bouncy journal pages with a grungy, weathered vibe and decadent painted edges.
To get started, I'll share tips for selecting a book for your project and show you how to prepare it for all of those layers of paint!
We'll generate ideas to bring into your journal, prepare a hardback book for mixed media journaling and dive in to those scrumptious pages. Toy with your ideas through a variety of journaling techniques. Get INTO your journal rather than worrying about the perfect page, the composition, or the outcome.
The techniques are all fresh & new. Create bright and bouncy pages while you refine your collage and acrylic painting techniques with a grungier vibe. We will actively work through the process of incorporating words on pages.
This is fun, messy, free-range, organic, playful art journaling, taught in a positive environment designed to support artists to create more openly and intuitively!
A wild variety of techniques for creating visually intriguing pages in your art journal using acrylic paint and paper [both found + painted].

As you explore & practice the techniques, you get comfy with incorporating imagery, words, patterns, and colors into your mixed media work.

Some of the pages we create in Groovy Grunge!
kind words about groovy grunge & novel approach!!!
“All 42 pages of my altered book have art on them. All of the techniques taught in Groovy Grunge/Novel Approach appear at least twice and the influence of Tiny Museum (done in a separate book) included. While there are pages that need collaging and/or grungifing, the book is essentially complete. It represents a year's effort that makes me smile when I page through the altered book. Thank you!” Theresa
"Wow, wow, wow!! These exercises are absolutely magical!!" Sooz
"I am a BIG fan of Tammy's Novel Approach and Groovy Grunge classes! Well worth the investment as I have used many of the techniques I learned in art pieces I created afterwards. I find I often go back and repeat specific exercises that I really love. But it doesn't stop there! I get so inspired by what my new class "mates" come up with - so many creative takes on Tammy's original ideas. I recently took another online class by another instructor and was constantly comparing them to Tammy - she wins hands down for well planned, structured and awesomely delivered classes." Julie
"I've loved this course, thank you so much." Rebecca
"Tammy's workshops are pure delight - she is very thorough in her approach and always leads you down wonderful and imaginative paths. I highly recommend them!" Patricia
"Tammy's ability to inspire creative experiments has always been a path for me to carve out time and space for my personal artistic expression. I view the course videos to keep me on-track with my own creative experiments even if I don't actually create the assignment." Teresa
"This fun workshop is reasonably priced for the lessons, encouragement and new-found friendships I've developed with other women all over the world and I highly recommend it to everyone, regardless of how much or how little your experience in this field." Barb
"I find Tammy Garcia's online workshops to be very organized and so inspiring. Full of the details I need, but with the freedom and permission to be me. Tammy inspires me to try so many things I would not try on my own and she attracts a lot of fun & creative people to her workshops. It is a joy to participate!" Lenna
"This was such a fun workshop that I am going to do it again." Jane
"I can totally recommend Tammy's workshops, she is so giving of herself, her ideas and techniques - and they are such FUN!" Jo
"I love the class as all the lessons are there and you can work at your own pace, dipping into them randomly. If you're interested, join in!" Frieda
"I’ve learned ever so much and enjoyed every minute of it – as well as everyone else’s work – hurrah!" Julie
