Event Overview

In this 4-day course, we’ll build a book using personal images and a variety of artistic techniques to make your vision come alive. We’ll focus on innovative and unique ways to preserve your treasured memories, as we work with acrylic paints, mediums, and textiles to alter the photographs and give them a painterly charm.

Learn ways to paint and alter your photos, integrate collage elements into your composition, texture techniques using mediums, ephemera and textiles, and simple book construction with an easy binding. I’ll provide a print of one of my images for you to use if you prefer to follow along step-by-step, or I’ll guide you as you work with your own. We’ll create textured book covers, signature wraps around hinged and painted pages, and then I’ll share how to create a beautiful spine, and bind it all together.

Join me on a creative adventure

No drawing or painting skills required. Class is open to all skill levels and you will receive personalized one-on-one guidance throughout the workshop.

Workshops Policies
Half-day, full-day, multi-day workshops, and special events are scheduled throughout the year. Once you purchase a workshop you will be enrolled.

If you would like to enroll in a workshop that has been sold out, please send an email to and you will be put on a waiting list.

Due to limited class size, purchased spots for all workshops are transferable but payment is non-refundable.

What this means: If you buy a class spot and are unable to attend, and if there is a waiting list of students that has formed, we will put you in contact with the first person on the list to whom you can offer your class spot. If the person on the list accepts, then that person will need to pay you for your spot and once that transaction is complete and both parties are satisfied, we will transfer your spot to the other person. If you are unable to attend and there is no waiting list, we will unfortunately be unable to provide refunds.

Emergency Cancelations
In the very rare event of an emergency or unavoidable natural disaster or act of God, the class may be cancelled. In this situation, all fees will be reimbursed to students in full.
