Join us each month for a fun & unique workshop that will expand your creative and imaginative art play. You will create an album that will be home to the journal pages you make each month.
You’ll be learning styles of creating and using everyday products in different ways. You’ll be inspired by art techniques made popular by the mixed media artists of today.
The workshop will begin February 3, 2013 and continue on the first Sunday of March and April. The workshops run from 12:30 – 4:00 pm and the cost for the first three months is $130 (membership discounts apply).
You’ll be required to bring with you basic supplies, listed in the workshop information below, and all other papers, mediums and specialty products to use on your pages will be supplied in class.
At the first workshop Linda will have you making a sturdy front and back cover to bind all the future pages you will make. Each month a minimum of two, or more, finished pages will be completed.
An example of some pages you will work on are on display at Treasured Memories.
