Explore Your Creative Vision – Expand Your Creative Skill – Express Your Creative Self

Art Journaling Weekend Workshop

2 1/2 – Days!

I believe you are creative and have something valuable to say!

If you desire to express yourself with color, line, shape, this weekend workshop is for you.

I’ve added an evening to this workshop to allow for more time to be inspired, to doodle and letter…. We will venture into creative play to explore, expand and express our creative selves in a beautiful, inspiring retreat-like setting.

This workshop is about getting inspired, playing with paint and learning techniques such as: painting papers for collage, binding a simple journal, doodling, creative lettering, collage with painted papers, and layering and shading with paint.


In this class you will experience:

  • being a part of a small class size in a safe, inspiring environment and pleasant atmosphere ready for creative play and adventure
  • visual inspiration and prompts for ideas
  • freedom to experiment and create what you want in your journal
  • connecting with like-hearted people
  • step-by-step demos with written instructions followed by opportunities to go through the processes
  • painting papers for collage using various techniques
  • binding a simple journal from watercolor paper
  • using your own painted papers in various collage applications
  • collage methods of layering and tinting papers with paint
  • painting coordinating backgrounds
  • doodling and creative lettering
