Too often we are caught up in the end result. We aim for the finish line instead of enjoying the ride. We want it now when the goal should be in the discovery, unraveling and experimentation.

In this workshop, we will focus on being in the moment, finding our creative path and learning how to allow ourselves to not only make mistakes but to learn, expand and grow from these new discoveries.

As we work through new ideas and exercises involving layering, painting and more, learn to surrender to your work. Look, create and make so called "mistakes" that are actually opportunities for creative growth and idea generation. Learn how to gain confidence and knowledge with your work. Strengthen your skills, expand your creative vocabulary and gain confidence in your artistic endeavors.

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 have a large toolbox of art supplies and ideas that I'll be unpacking just for you in this brand new workshop. Let's get messy and make the leap together! 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 (ONLY 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
  • container to hold your dirty paint water
  • 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)
  • 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)
