summer workshops at pv art center


I just wanted to post a quick update (or a save the date really) for two workshops I will be teaching this summer at the Palos Verdes Art Center. registration is not open yet, but I wanted to at least share the dates with you in the case you’re making your plans for summer! especially because I believe one of these workshops in particular will fill up fast…cough* cough*….MINI JOURNALS!

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.

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.

I will be posting again here when registration opens up – so be sure you’re on my mailing list to receive a notification! (sign up in the side bar area if you haven’t already —>). I hope to be seeing and creating with some of you over summer…xo

    • yes! I do plan on doing a mini journal online class! I just want to teach the class in person a bit first (to learn student frustrations, and work through my process) prior to bringing it online. 🙂

    BUT, I might be able to take the “fantastical fauna” class! I hope I can.. Fingers crossed!!
