lyrical live & cacti workshops!


"Lyrical" workshop (both online and in-person) by artist Roxanne Coble

"Cacti" art journal workshop with artist Roxanne Coble

yes, you read that right. I’m going to be teaching my online class “Lyrical” as in-person workshop! EEKK! I’m so freakin’ pumped about it…

I’ll be teaching this class, along with “Cacti” in the San Diego area at Way Art Yonder Studio next month & in June. Lyrical will be a two-day workshop for those of you that maybe want to make a trip out of it, and Cacti is a great one-day class option for any of you local folks looking to get your art fix. check out the schedule and class descriptions below…

Saturday, May 20th – 10am – 4pm
Sunday, May 21st – 10am – 3pm
Lyrical: where music meets the art journal. Designed and inspired by Roxanne’s unique artistic style and popular online class LYRICAL, you’ll create your very own two-page journal spread from start to finish. You will choose a song that you love or that inspires you, and use it as a springboard for your journal pages. Working through various mixed media techniques, the class specifically explores: the concept of synesthesia, composition and the use of a focal point, typography (and the designing of multiple hand drawn fonts), tiered paint layering, unique art journal mediums such as oil and pan pastels, and of course – all of those finishing details that ultimately ‘turn up’ your spread to a completed work of art.

Saturday, June 17th – 10am – 4pm
Art journaling meets illustration in this mixed media workshop “Cacti”. This class takes you through the process of creating a two-page art journal spread that uses succulents and cacti as a visual focal point. Through guided step-by-step instruction, you will build up a mixed media foundation layer using ephemera and acrylic paint. With a foundation layer complete, the class then further explores: planning a composition, the use of a split-complimentary color palette, observational drawing, and unique illustration techniques using both acrylic paint, ink, and/or watercolor.

join me this summer in prague…


you might have already seen the save the date announcement on social media last month, but I’m here to tell you that registration is now open for the Call of the Wild Soul Retreat happening this summer in Prague! I wanted to be sure I got a post up here on the blog, because space is very limited for this (and from what I’ve seen in the past, spots go fast!).

this retreat has travel adventure, creative magic, and ‘once in a lifetime’ written all over it. it is by far, what I’m most excited about for 2017. I hope you’ll join me and artist Willemien de Villiers for the journey…

hop on over here for all of the information, faq’s, and registration form.

join me this weekend in encinitas!

new art shop date!


***NEXT ART SHOP***SATURDAY MARCH 9th (9am-5pm) – in Playa del Rey, CA – $60 per person. this workshop will be a MIXED MEDIA project (full details to come in an email if you express interest). art supplies, morning treats (hello mimosas!), snacks throughout the day, and ALL DAY instruction will be provided.

it’s been quite some time since I last blogged/talked about/brainstormed up a new ART SHOP. I still can’t get over the fact that I’m just now posting these photos up from my previous (and first) class! now that I’m taking this semester off, I figured what better time than now to schedule a fresh new workshop…

for those who don’t know: ART SHOP is an all day art workshop (that I currently host in my LA bungalow by the beach) where you’re allowed to let go, get creative, and learn a thing or two you didn’t know going in. there is no prior art training required– just an open mind, and the desire to be creative for an entire day. focusing on one project through step by step instruction, you’ll work with a medium or technique you have never used, learn exercises to break creative blocks and stay motivated, and walk away with some bitchin’ artwork!

here’s a glimpse into my last workshop, which was an abstract painting lesson…

**interested? shoot me an email -> (or leave a comment below with your email). space is limited, as I prefer to keep my workshops more intimate!
