Upcoming Workshop: "Starting an Art Journal"


On Saturday April 17th, I'm taking a break from my aromatherapy activities to give attention to another of my passions:  Art Journaling.   I'm teaching a workshop called Starting an Art Journal.  If you're interested (and local), it will be in State College, PA and I have room for two more participants.     Below is a description of the day taken from my flyer as well as photos from my last Art Journaling workshop.   You can see my own journal pages here on my Flickr account.

***************************

"Starting an Art Journal"
with Liz Fulcher
Explore your creativity in a spontaneous, playful and
imperfect way that will have your inner muse dancing with delight!

What is Art Journaling?  Art journaling is vehicle for expressing yourself when words aren't enough.  It's also an invitation to your inner child to come out and play!  Art skills are definitely not required since I emphasize the process of being creative, rather than the product.

In this one-day "playshop", I will take you step-by-step through a few simple techniques and "recipes" that will enable you to transform a simple blank book into a unique and personalized visual journal.    This workshop is designed to be playful and fun and will include lots of paint, stamps, music, aroma (how can I not include aroma?) and maybe even cookies and milk for your inner child.    You'll return home full of inspiration and resources to help you continue creating art and words on your own.

We will: 
~Discuss various types of visual journals;
~Use acrylic paints, colored pens and rubber stamps to create several two-page backgrounds;
~Choose images from magazines to create a collage;
~Design and render compositions that reflect your personality and mood;
~Engage in writing exercises designed to spark your imagination and get you writing;

Supplies:
All supplies will be provided.  You are welcome to bring a favorite rubber stamp, scraps of paper or anything significant that you might like to incorporate into your journal.
Clothing:  Acrylic paint doesn't always wash out of fabric so Dress to Mess.
Date:    Saturday, April 17, 2010 
Time:   9:004:00 p.m.
Cost:     $70  +  $7 Materials Fee

I can't wait....I'm counting down the days (7) until your "playshop", where I will become the are-teest of my dreams. Maybe I'll even wear pigtails (to coax my inner 10 year old out of hiding). See you soon, Liz!
