Art journaling workshops

"Every child is an artist. The challenge is how to remain an artist once we grow up." ~Pablo Picasso

For the past couple of weeks I've been making big splashes with watercolors and polishing my art journal techniques for a new two-part workshop I'll be teaching this fall at the Royal Oak Public Library.

"The Joys of Art Journaling" will be held on Tuesdays, October 3 and 10, from 7:00 - 8:30pm in the Royal Oak Public Library Auditorium. The library will provide basic art supplies -- markers, crayons, glue sticks, colored pencils and magazine images. You'll bring your own composition book, blank journal, or the sketchbook of your choice. You can also bring fabric scraps, old greeting cards, photocopies, and any other art supplies you'll need for your journal.

Art journaling combines journal- keeping practices with a variety of mixed-media art and craft techniques. But it's really more about art than writing -- and can serve as a personal tool for self-discovery or creative inspiration.   

Designed for those who want to learn the basics of art journaling, this class is part of my mission to help others express their own creativity.  No experience is necessary and coloring outside the lines is encouraged.  

Enrollment is limited (registration required), so please plan to attend both Tuesday evening workshops if you register. The class is free to the public. For more details and to register, please visit the ROPL site here
