I have been enjoying the "21 Secrets Art Journaling Workshop". It is an amazing deal! It's for anyone interested in visual art of any kind, or journaling - you don't have to be an artist. There are 21 different classes many taught by well known artists.(I found it through Terri Kahr's blog thru Google connect - thanks Terri!) It is on sale for $59, which gives you access 24/7 to all 21 classes until January 1st, 2014. Even this "starving artist" could afford that! Here is the link if you care to check it out:
The first class I took was Terri's awesome "I Have A Secret", but with my inkjet printer on the fritz, and my new (used) laser printer waiting to be set up, I do not have a sample to show off. Next I did the fabulous Watercolor Playground class with Tammy Garcia of Yellow Daisy. It's a great class for the absolute beginner like me, and so much fun. I am addicted! The first 2 pics are from that class. The 2nd two are from Doodle Your Way by Cathy Bluteau. I love doing this, too. It's a mixture of collage and design work. The last pic is one I did on an envelope and sent to my Mom for Mother's day. I am also just beginning and online visual journaling class with Juliana Coles. The point of this class is not to make good art, but to use the process she teaches for personal growth/ internal excavation. I am VERY excited to be doing this class as I have had my eye on her classes for a long time, but money was always an issue. I really feel drawn to this, and I think my Higher Power knows I will uncover something important there. If you want to look into her classes look up Juliana Coles or "Me and Pete productions".
