The Art of Visual Dialogue (a special two day class) $210 Times: Fri 11:30-5:30 AND Sat 10:30-4:30. Kelly is extremely excited about this
workshop. My mind is brimming over with ideas, tips, tricks and
techniques that I am eager to share with you. In this rare two day class we will be working in an extremely unique way. If you are looking to push yourself as an artist, this is the class that you want to take. If you want to step outside of your comfort zone and explore new ideas and methods of working, this is the book for you. We will start by working LARGE exploring
a variety of techniques. As you work, you will learn how to push aside
your inner critic as you create rich layers of texture, color and self
expression. We'll step back and create a portfolio journal from scratch
that will bind and hold not only your pages but other possibilities as
well! Now we dive back onto the pages we
started earlier to create fresh, new pages. Learn how to develop a keen
eye at how you look and see your work as well as the work of others.
We'll be exploring a myriad of journal and collage tips, tricks,
techniques and ideas; fixing so called mistakes; learning how to "see"
by pulling out colors, shapes and patterns and learning how to create
visually stunning, deeply rich personal pages. This truly is unlike any other class
that I have ever offered. You will be learning process as you create
your own unique product (a visual journal!) Learn how to dialogue in your journal and how to make your pages work for you. Supply list: Scissors,
small selection of favorite collage
ephemera, bone folder, cork back metal ruler, roll of waxed paper, roll
paper towels OR an old rag, permanent black inkpad, 1" brush
to glue (I like chip or bristle brushes), a few of your favorite glue
sticks, an old catalog or magazine to glue on (if you don't want to use
all of your waxed paper for this.)
