We all have our favorite tools. After all, what artist doesn't love a good paintbrush? What about other art tools like palette knives, catalyst tools and even household items? I've fallen head over heels painting with tools that aren't brushes. After this workshop, you will, too!

Moving beyond the brush opens us up to new possibilities and discoveries in how we create layers on our pages. Learn how to create new colors on your rich, luscious, unique pages. Gain confidence in exploring new ideas and take the plunge into a world of color. Learn that creative mistakes are only new possibilities. Bring your journal, some waxed paper and be ready to set off on a whole new adventure in creative painting.

My workshops are always about inspiring creativity, generating ideas and learning how to see. The ideas can be translated into a variety of art forms. Use your art journal "as is" or for a springboard of inspiration for other art forms and living a creative life!

Instructor Provided (for use in-class, and to share):

  • I will be bringing a wide selection of rubber stamps, ink pads, stencils and collage materials. You're always welcome to bring your own supplies to use but this is a small heads up that I tend to bring everything but the kitchen sink in my classes!

Student should bring:

  • your journal/desired work surface
  • mini 01 catalyst tool and palette knife (if you have them, I will have extras to share)
  • an apron
  • baby wipes
  • scissors
  • a small selection of favorite collage ephemera (think about reading this when choosing your images and papers)
  • cork back metal ruler
  • a full roll of paper towels OR old rags
  • your favorite paint brushes
  • a few of your favorite glue sticks (please trust me when I say that large glue sticks will last you longer. I always have two or three 40 gram glue sticks in my journal bag and that's more than enough for a long weekend. You WILL go through the smaller glue sticks in MINUTES)
  • container to hold your dirty paint water
  • roll of waxed paper OR an old catalog or magazine to glue on (if you don't want to use all of your waxed paper for this)
