Imagine spending a weekend creating art, painting, doodling and making a journal at a magical place called Valley Ridge Art Studio nestled in the rolling foothills of Muscoda, WI. Come join me for a three-day workshop September 26-28, 2008. Come and pLaY!! Here are the details:
Dwell: The Coffee Table Book
Build a coffee table visual journal that measures up to 16" x 21". The journal covers are painted mixed media board with a doorway cutout, which tips out to expose a personal mantra. Inside the journal houses, hand painted and stained pages flip and fold in "non-traditional" ways.
DAY 1 - Monotypes, drizzles & doodles: Through a series of creative jumpstarts you will be guided to create calligraphic backgrounds, lush painted papers, and black/white pages that spill throughout this large
DAY 2 - Collage and painting: Paint and create wonderful layered abstractions of florals integrated with photos to document a recent travel journey and graphic typography collage to display a collection of personal memories. Paint jean/canvas accents for journal
DAY 3 - Bookbinding: The final day, we will build the journal structure using the painted covers and paintings created in the first two days.
