Art Journaling Workshop: Novel Approach

Novel Approach is a self-paced mixed media art journaling workshop taught via video tutorials, with prompts, discussion, resources & tips galore. Working with collage and acrylics in an altered book is an incredibly engaging process; each page of your book has a built-in starting point that you can choose to incorporate or ignore. I like to have multiple books and journals going simultaneously {and I have three in process at this moment}.

In the workshop, I'll show you how to create a wide variety of playful, textural & visually interesting art journal pages in a hardback book. There's a private Facebook group where you can share your work, if you feel comfortable, ask questions and talk about the techniques. It's a warm & enthusiastic group and yes, I'm an active participant:)

When your book is finished you'll adore the glorious edges of saturated acrylic paint. Join the class to explore ideas for allowing your pages to flourish without a predefined finished product.

You'll learn an array of acrylic painting and collage techniques. We'll go on an idea & inspiration treasure hunt, paint abstract backgrounds, discover found poetry, work with grids and freestyle collage, adding color and mystery to your book.

This is fun, messy, free-range, organic, playful art journaling. To learn more, and to register for Novel Approach, go to the Workshops section.
