embrace yourself online workshop
hello + welcome.
This will be my eighth year teaching online! How can that be? Time keeps on flying by and here I am again, offering a brand new workshop. Another workshop filled to the brim with new ideas, new material, loads of inspiration, and ways of honoring yourself.
Join me for this intensive online workshop that will focus on art journaling, self care, and creative exploration.
Starting Monday, February 20, 2017.
This will be a 5 week workshop, with weekly downloadable videos on traditional and nontraditional art journaling, tips and tutorials on self care, and other non-journaling art lessons. You know if you've taken my workshops in the past I try to offer as much as possible, to make it all worthwhile.
While the class is "live" (the first five weeks when I am still filming/editing/loading), each week will follow the same schedule...
Monday - Art journaling lesson
tuesday - art journaling lesson
wednesday - self care tips and recipes
thursday - art journaling
friday - Creative exploration* lesson
*(art making - outside of journaling)
Once all the content has been loaded after those five weeks, all of the material will be available to watch & download as you like until February 2019.
Price for workshop: $150

Why Art Journaling?
Each time I approach a new workshop I look for ways to make it fresh and exciting, and while I have touched on art journaling in some of my past workshops I have never fully focused on it. I love how expressive journaling can be, without fear of mistakes or expectations of pleasing anyone. Plus, I started the new year off making a commitment to take better care of myself, as I try to slow down a little and savor life as much as possible. I wanted to weave together ways to be creative while nurturing ourselves.
While this course will focus on Art Journaling all the lessons can be applied to pieces of art not in a journal. You might even decide you want to work on canvas or wood the entire time, that's perfectly okay!
In addition to the workshop there will be a fb group where you can share your work & self, and connect with others in the workshop. Weekly prompts and assignments. A weekly playlist of a variety of music. a list of some of my favorite resources for supplies, printing, and images.
But what will we be doing?
A little drawing, a lot of painting (multiple subjects with various mediums), some collaging, some designing, a little photography, a bit of writing, some lettering, learning, sharing + caring, and even a little bathing ;).

How is it different from your past courses?
Techniques may overlap, but everything is fresh.
Do I need any previous experience to take this course?
No. I try to teach in a way that benefits the novice and the skilled artists.
Do I have to buy all the supplies on the materials list?
Of course not. Try to make do with what you already have and go from there.
What if I get behind?
No worries. You have time to work at your own pace.
Do I have to join the FB Group?
Absolutely not! But it really is a great way to share yourself, see what others are working on, inspire and be inspired by others in the course, and just connect with other artists.

Once I sign up for the course can I change my mind?
Sorry, but there are no refunds whatsoever once you have signed up for this course due to password logistics.
Can I teach what I learn from this course and/or write an article for publication on techniques used during this course?
Please be respectful and use good judgment when considering doing so. If you take what you learn from what I offer and wish to teach/write please be sure to use your own voice and make your work original. I spent months (not to mention all the years i've been making art) planning this workshop. it never feels good to have someone swoop in and take what you've worked so hard on. Thank you.
