art journaling "play-shop" coming soon



art journaling "play-shop" 
covering the fundamentals and benefits of art journaling....

who wants to play?  
join me for an art journaling "play-shop" on 
 saturday, august 15, 10-4 
$65.00

i am going to do things a little differently this time.  (a tiny bit more structured), maybe!
for those who haven't done art journaling before AND for the seasoned art journalist, i will cover the fundamentals of art journaling, and, what i believe to be essential for beginning the art journaling process.  i will offer prompts, talk about composition and ideas for pages, and demo a page from start to finish.  we will play with collage and different techniques throughout the day.   during class i will have my art journals available to look in and ask questions about the process of any of the pages.  as usual, i will have some goodies to share with all of my students :)
this "play-shop" will be in my home studio in wilmington, nc.  message me to register and i will give you all the details and directions.  kim@bigstronggirldesigns.com

bring:
a bag lunch (fridge and microwave in studio)... i will have water and tea
your art journal OR a pad of mixed media paper (size is up to you, but i like 8 x 10 or larger)
some acrylic paints (your favorite brand and colors)
