MINI ART JOURNAL WORKSHOP
Saturday, July 9th, 12pm-4pm

This art journaling class takes you through the process of creating a miniature, two-inch, mixed media art journal. Through step-by-step instruction, we will begin by binding and constructing our mini journals by hand. Once our mini journals are assembled, the class will then take you through a variety of individual techniques, prompts, and illustrations to apply within each 2-page spread! At the completion of the class you’ll have a fully altered mini journal featuring eight different miniature art spreads. Register on the PVAC website!

“FANTASTICAL FAUNA” // ART JOURNALING WORKSHOP
Saturday, August 6th, 10am-4pm (with one-hour lunch break)

This art journal class takes you through the process of creating a two-page journal spread that includes an illustrated animal. What makes these animals unique however, is that they are in a state of transparency: complete with bones, organs, and unique illustrative details. Through guided step-by-step instruction, we will build up an initial background layer using a variety of mixed media techniques. With our background layer complete, you will then learn how to plan, draw, and fully illustrate your own fantastical fauna. Register on the PVAC website!

+ again, registration for both of these workshops is now open! hop on over to the palos verdes art center website to snag your seat. I hope to see you at one (or both) of these classes! xo

+ can’t make it, but still want to take a class with me? book me for a private workshop, or join me in my online class CREATURES!

workshop at the PV art center!

as some of you may remember, I was teaching a children’s art camp over summer at the palos verdes art center. well, I’m thrilled to announce that I have been invited to teach a one day art journaling workshop! (I’m also teaching a weekly ‘mommy & me’ style art class…but more on that later…)

the workshop I will be teaching is my ‘illustrated mini portraits’ class. this was a course I developed a while back while I was painting a lot of figures into my journals (like the one seen in the flyer above). registration is now open, and if you’re in the so cal area you can make a day trip out of it! did I also mention the pv art center is just beautiful? here’s all the details:

ILLUSTRATED MINI-PORTRAITS // ART JOURNALING
Saturday, 2/20, 10am-4pm (with a one hour lunch break)
This art journaling course takes you through the process of creating a two-page journal spread that includes an illustrated portrait or figure. Through step-by-step instruction, we will begin by building preliminary layers within our journal pages using a variety of mixed media techniques. After building up a foundation, you will then learn how to plan, draw and paint an illustrative style portrait into your spread. This portrait instruction also includes variations of how to approach drawing the face and features, contouring using multiple layers of color, and detailing facial features in pen.

go here to register, and I hope to see some of you in class! xo
