art journaling workshop

What a wonderful Saturday morning I had!
This past Saturday I ran an art journaling workshop 
at the Bluesfest School of Music and Art (BSOMA).

I went into the morning with such excitement,
which was equalled by they enthusiasm 
of the wonderful people who registered.
We had full registration 
{with some others who also wanted to join in!}

Here's a peak at the morning, tables set up and ready to go:

I created a little packet for each person. With only two hours, I was definitely pressed for time, but I wanted to introduce some colour theory, along with a quick talk about the many different ways to keep an art journal.

I based the class around some of my art journal pages,
 teaching the techniques I used here:
And then the wonderful process of creating began. 
A few of the folks had art journaled before, 
but for most this was the beginning of a beautiful journey for them.

The ladies {and one man} were so open, friendly and engaged. 
They were truly a pleasure to teach.

 I absolutely loved teaching this class and had such wonderful feedback, 
with requests for more, and longer workshops.
{Do you guys know how humbled and excited I am about that??}

I am working with BSOMA to create series of classes, so stay tuned!



  1. Happy to hear that the workshop went so well. Excited to hear about the series you're working on! Keep me posted.
