Workshops at Way Art Yonder in 2018!


Fantastical Fauna workshop taught by artist Roxanne Coble

as I finalize in-person workshops for 2018, I’ll be keeping you guys up-to-date here on the blog! be sure you’re on my email list (sign up on the right sidebar) to be notified when I put up a post 🙂

I’ve got two workshops that I’m teaching at Way Art Yonder Studio next year, and I’m thrilled to finally share them with you! Way Art Yonder is one of my favorite SoCal studios to teach at…so if you’re in the San Diego area or want to make a trip out of it, I would love for you to join me.

first up is a brand new class I can’t wait to teach…Mixed Media Mini Zines! here’s a bit of info about the workshop:

Mixed Media Mini Zine workshop with artist Roxanne Coble!

+ Mixed Media Mini Zines // Saturday, Feb 24th 2018, 10:00am – 4:00pm +
This brand new class will take you through the process of creating a single-page, 8-fold mini zine … but with a mixed media twist! Completed in Roxanne’s illustrative and detailed style, we will create a zine that features both imagery and text. Through step-by-step instruction, you’ll learn how to apply various illustration and mixed media techniques for each page. You’ll also learn how to plan and add text, and assemble the final product. At the end of the workshop, you’ll have a completed one-page zine, ready for photocopying and distribution!.

FANTASTICAL FAUNA art journal workshop with artist Roxanne Coble in San Diego!

the second class I’ll be teaching is a personal fav and one of my most popular art journal workshops…Fantastical Fauna! this is the second time I’ll be teaching this workshop at Way Art Yonder, because the first time around it sold out. so, if you missed out last time, here’s your second chance :). here’s a bit more about that class:

+ Fantastical Fauna // Saturday, June 16th 2018, 10:00am – 4:00pm +
This popular 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; completed 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. Learn more & register here.

I’ll be announcing more 2018 workshops in the next couple of weeks or so…so stay tuned 🙂

join me for cacti (and a reception)!

Class description:
Art Journaling meets Illustration in this mixed media workshop. Join Roxanne Coble and other artists in this brand new class, “Cacti”. She will take artists 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, and explore planning a composition, the use of a split-complementary color palette, observational drawing and unique illustration techniques.

if you’re in the SoCal or San Diego area, join me won’t you? there are also several out of towners coming in for the class, so heck – maybe treat-yo-self to a last minute road trip. also to note, James will be joining me for the reception after the workshop! (so, expect some #croutcorner references, haha).

you can hop on over here to register for the class…I hope to see you then 😉
