Studio Schedule

A complete introduction to Art Journaling including your own journal, writing prompt deck and supplies. This is a 2-hour class.

If you have been wanting to try Art Journaling, this is for you. It’s 2 hours and includes a journal, a deck of writing prompts, art supplies to use in the class and a Creativity Bundle chock full of mixed media goodies to take with you. You don’t need any experience with art journaling! Be sure to stop and get some Piper and Leaf Tea or a coffee from Dragon’s Forge Cafe (upstairs). This is going to be awesome!

Color mixing with acrylics

In each one hour class we will focus on one technique or type of product that you can use in painting, mixed media, art journaling, card making, scrapbooking…whatever! I’ll provide all materials, including a box lunch from one of Lowe Mill’s fine eateries.

This month, our topic is COLOR MIXING. Mixing paints can be intimidating and frustrating (I speak from experience)if you’re not quite sure what works. In this class we’ll go a bit beyond the “warm and cool colors” level so you’ll feel more comfortable with your paint.

When you sign up, I’ll send an email with the lunch choices.

Everyone should go through this book at least once in their lives, if not more. Using an Art Journal brings the experience to a new level.

This is the 30 year Anniversary of “The Artist Way” by Julia Cameron, and what better way to celebrate this book than by starting a 12 week course where we go through the whole book together, using our Art Journals as a part of the experience. This class has been on my mind for literally YEARS. I think now is the perfect time.

You will get:

  • A copy of the book
  • A fresh new art journal that’s a bit heftier than usual
  • A notebook for your Morning Pages
  • A smooth writing gel pen
  • A large Creativity Bundle to take with you
  • Art Journal Primer

We meet on Saturday, August 27 for two hours to pick up supplies, learn some techniques to get you started with the art part of journaling, and spend time creating.

NEW: ALTERNATE FIRST SESSION WILL BE AVAILABLE SAT. SEPT 3, 10AM-12PM.

After that, for those who choose the “all classes” option, we will meet for the following 11 weeks, on Saturdays at noon for ONE hour and use studio materials to work in your journals and learn about new techniques and tools. If you miss a class or two, that is totally fine. There will actually be one week where we meet on a Friday (October 28).

So you can take this course in one of 4 ways:

  1. Just do the August 27 class and get the materials with a copy of the book
  2. Just do the August 27 class and get the materials with NO book (if you already have a copy)
  3. Access to all the classes with the book
  4. Access to a the classes with NO book (if you already have a copy)
This is Open studio time for art journaling – bring your journal and use the studio’s creative goodies!

If you have a journal you’re working in, bring it with you…I also have art journal starter kits here if you want to pick one up, or visit the Art Cart down the hall to see their awesome selection (and get 10% off!)

There is no instruction, just time to work on our journals!

I call this, “Heart Journaling” because it’s a thoughtful, creative, and relaxing way to put what is on my heart onto journal pages.

This class helps you get started with an art journal that can become a regular part of your faith walk. It’s like a traditional written journal, where you can put in words what’s on your heart, write a prayer, or expand on scripture. But it doesn’t stop with words; we use paints, pens, pages from old books, including psalm books, to build on that. You’ll be provided with a journal, two hours of studio time where I’ll show you lots of techniques which you’ll try on your own pages, and you’ll leave with materials to continue at home, writing prompts, and of course, your journal.

Make a silk flower arrangement with warm fall colors, and incorporate some ribbons and papers.

Want to learn how to make a simple yet beautiful flower arrangement? I’ll have lots of dried and silk flowers and foliage for you to use to make a Fall themed arrangement. I’ll show you some easy ways of designing the arrangement to suit the container. You’ll leave with something you’ll be proud to decorate your home with or give as a gift.

We meet, make as many 2.5×3.5 (the official size) Artist Trading Cards as we can in 1.5 hours, then swap or keep them.

ATC swaps have been around for a while. You can paint, draw, or do mixed media on your cards, which we will then trade with each other(or keep, whatever you choose!) The cards are always the same size, 2.5×3.5 and fit in the sleeves made for baseball cards, but you don’t have to store them there. Add them to a journal, a recipe box, or make up your own way of storing them. I have these Swaps planned for once every 3 months, so we’ll do it again in January 2023.
