Congrats!!! And, there's still time to sign up for my class. In fact, you can sign up after it begins. The class materials remain up indefinitely, and so you can work at your own pace and also sign up at any time. Class starts tomorrow...woo hoo! And tonight we're doing a chat at Get It Scrapped...9:00 p.m. EDT...join us!!
Now's your chance to win a free spot...just post a comment on my blog & you'll be entered to win. I'll draw a winner on Monday!
This class is going to be different than other classes you've taken. We're going to take an artist and learn about his or her life...sort of a crash art history course. Then, we're going to take the artists' style and art and use it as a starting point for our own journals.
We're not going to be recreating the artists' work...I'll save that for 4th grade art class. No, we're going to draw snippets of inspiration that can fuel your own work for pages & pages.
Participate in the challenge, and you could win a Jenni Bowlin prize worth $26! Woo hoo! If you're new to Scrap-Diner, you will love it...Sherine gets orders out lickety-split, and is one of the nicest people on the whole planet.
Michelle Houghton is teaching an awesome class at Get It Scrapped...Oodles of Doodles. I checked out Michelle's free warm-up lesson, and I was really inspired!The class has lots of cool scrapbooking possibilities...and lots of art journaling possibilities, too. I always tell people I don't know how to draw, but I think Michelle's class will give me some tips & some confidence. Oodles of Doodles starts on Monday, June 15th!
And....I'm giving away one free spot in Oodles of Doodles...woo hoo! Just post a comment and I'll draw the winner on Sunday night on Monday morning!
AJ101 is the very basics...it's great if you're a beginner and have never art journaled before.
The class has both an art component (where I teach you how to go through creating a textured background, adding collage elements, etc), and a writing component (where I give you tools to start recording your daily life to put in your journal).
There are 8 lessons (4 art and 4 writing). There are 4 videos that go with each week's art lessons...plus a bonus spray ink tutorial & video.
You can take this class at any time in its "archived" or home-study format. All the materials are up, and I check the boards regularly for questions & concerns.
AJ201 focuses on getting inspiration from great masters of art. We'll explore artists' lives, work, and world views, and we'll use that exploration as jumping off points for our own personal art journaling.
This class is all about play...about seeing what happens why you try something new, and about gleaning inspiration from the world of art.
8 lessons--4 art related and 4 prompt/journaling related. Videos, too, of course! :)
This class will assume you know the basics of creating art journal pages (using gesso, acrylic paint, gel medium, texture tools, etc.).
The first lesson goes live on June 30th!
