No More Excuses Art Journaling Series
The program is centered on using a desk calendar as the basis of an art journal while incorporating art journaling, goal setting, writing, idea making, sketching, watercoloring, stamp carving and collage. It is a daily, weekly, and monthly system that provides prompts, ideas, quotes, poems, and reminders to add to your journal.
Through this process you learn step by step pen and ink drawing and introduction to watercolor to name a few of the skills. Students who had never picked up a brush end up going on to confidently paint using watercolors. Seasoned artists have used this program as a springboard for their own work. Both rave about these workshops. It's like getting a jammed packed art infusion over the course of a year in only minutes a day.
You will receive prompts, ideas, quotes, poems, and reminders to add to your journal.
Create A journal that will carry you through the year so that you can incorporate art into your daily life in a quick, easy and fun way!
One of my favorite things to do is sit down with a book to work in my watercolor journal. I find it so inspiring to copy from a watercolor artist that I admire. It gives me a chance to hone my skills without having to think too much. There is a reason why art students of old were made to copy master works!
I have been fooling around with the idea of watercolors and using patterns in my work and honestly "I think I like it" Defintely something worth exploring .
I did these two last night in the car while my son had basketball practice. Let's just say that the weeks ahead are going to include me in the car waiting a lot ;) Lacrosse starts next week as well. So I am hoping to get some work done in the process.
This is where I like to sit in the evenings and work on my watercolor sketches - its my little corner of the world - my safe spot - where I relax ( Yes, I have a painting studio and it is very nice but this is my nest)
Its in the corner of my bedroom and it is quiet - well as quiet as it can be with two nitro filled boys ;)
It's where I can do this ...
Now if I can only figure out how to get a fireplace in here it would be perfect!
Give yourself a Christmas/Hanukkah Present or ask someone to hint to your loved one what a great gift this would be ...
