'Colour In Your Art' is a self-paced art
journaling online workshop. No previous experience in art journaling is
needed. This is a beginner to intermediate class. The supplies used in
the class are basic supplies for art journaling.
Just like all my other workshops, I created 'Colour In Your Art' because I would have wanted to take such a class myself earlier in my art journey. The essence of this workshop is similar to 'Watercolour Workbook', my most popular workshop to date. I wanted to create a workshop for those of us I like to call the 'spread-thin' crafters. We are those creative people, who want to try it all, dabble in everything, scrapbook, memory plan, art journal, use watercolours, paints, markers, stamps, stencils... You get the picture. But, we also have a life outside our craft zone. And that other real life stuff leaves us with very little time to practice our passion, to improve our skills.
I found that what happened to me, was that many times, by the time I actually got to sitting down and creating, I was overwhelmed. I wasn't sure what to use, and many times I was frustrated by the results. I take online art classes myself, and some are amazing. But almost always, they require time and patience to get pleasing results. There's nothing wrong with that, I am the last person to claim that there's a magic solution. No. In order to get better at anything, one needs to practice. And practice. And then practice some more.
You're hoping there's a BUT here, right? Well, I think there is. BUT... I can help. I can help you focus, I can help you get to where you want to be a little bit faster. I can help you discover YOU in your short creative time. And we can do that without frustration. Just fun playtime. This class is not about learning how to draw something perfectly. It's about playing in your journal, it's about discovering what YOU like. It's about letting go of what you think you should be doing, or should be using, and really focusing on your own taste and preferences.
The first section of the class is dedicated to finding our custom colour palette. I guide you through that process, using some simple and clear exercises, that will get you to the painting part in no time. Colour is one of the most important elements I repsond to in others' art, and my own. I find taking the time to pick colors that speak to us can have a huge effect on the final results of our creations. By the end of this section you will have a versatile colour palette that works for you, an assembly of supplies to work with, and already some pretty pages in your art journal.
The second section includes 6 tutorials+ a bonus lesson. Every tutorial includes start to finish process videos, each one focusing on discovering YOUR style. Through simple and fun exercises we will learn what we love to create.
All the class content is in video form, High Definition tutorials, filmed just above my work surface, to give you a clear view of everything I'm doing, with explanations and commentary. I'm available for any questions that you may have!
No physical product will be delivered
when purchasing the class. The class is self-paced, which means once
you've enrolled, you will gain access to all the content. Watch one at a
time or binge watch the entire class, you decide!
