Program Description

10 Weekly Classes in Five Main Parts

Art journaling is a way to express yourself in a journal or some type of book. It's a visual record using images and words. There are no rules. Use art journaling to try out new ideas and techniques or as a visual diary. We'll work together to explore a variety of types of journals, pages and techniques. You can use the art supplies you have or those you want to try. Through demonstrations you'll learn about a variety of GOLDEN gels, pastes and mediums to see how they can be used in your collage art work. After the demonstrations, you can opt to purchase the GOLDEN products that interest you, on your own, either online or at your local art supply store. The course will be loosely divided into five parts based on product demonstrations. Throughout the course, we'll be creating a variety journal entry pages.

Part 1: Layering Collage
Part 2: Make Your Mark
Part 3: Stencil Magic
Part 4: Creating Texture
Part 5: Acrylic Skin Application
