Come join us as we embark on a weekend of colorful, playful, art journaling fun. Whether you currently make art journals, or have just begun to think about doing so, this class is appropriate, and no previous journaling, bookmaking, painting, or art skills are required. All you need is a desire to create and play and you'll leave with a beautiful new art journal handmade by you, and many pages of play and exploration begun in it. These art journals are great places to explore and develop your other art practices too. Pam uses hers them for color exploration, designing, painting, sketching, lettering etc. not just art journaling, which is a creative end in of itself, of course!

We'll make gorgeous paper to wrap our journal cover with, and we'll learn a traditional long stitch binding method to bind delicious watercolor paper signatures inside our books, creating a striking, unique, completed one of a kind journal to play and explore in, and the knowledge of how to make your own art journals evermore. Then we'll get to the page play. She'll demo all her favorite tools and products, both longstanding favorites and new products and processes discovered just this year, and you'll get to try them out while creating in your art journal to see if you might want to include them in your art making practice regularly. We'll cover paints, backgrounds, markers, pens, lettering, collage, prompts, methods, and try a few exercises that will surely leave you with new ideas and a renewed desire to continue to create, especially in an art journal! We'll have a flexible schedule to allow for student interest and questions to lead the way as to be sure to get your most burning questions about art journaling answered.

<![CDATA[Danielle Donaldson's CREATIVEgirl Workshop May 1-3 2015]]> http://www.donnadowney.com/danielle-donaldson-s-creative-girll-workshop-may-1-3-2015.html Join Danielle Donaldson at Donna Downey Studios for her CREATIVEgirl Workshop!!

During our three wonderful and amazingly colorful days together, we will learn how to change up our everyday creative practice by downsizing our drawings and imagining BIG. We will make friends with watercolors and use HUGE yummy rainbow palettes. And when we mix it all together, we will explore how to recognize our “stuck-ness” in the process - how to walk away and come back with fresh eyes and fanciful solutions. And in the end, we will have our very own creativeGIRL. Her superpower is to stick with you and remind the everyday-you how seriously awesome you are. (And kick your rear into gear when necessary, she’s sassy like that.)

Techniques for this workshop include:
· Sketching small
· Infusing your drawings with imaginative details
· Working with watercolors – techniques and color palettes
· How to use watercolors with other media – layering
· And, of course, watercolor illustrations of some very sassy girls

ALL SUPPLIES ARE INCLUDED.........
