48 weeks is a year long comprehensive online course that empowers each of us to allow the natural ebb and flow of our artistic styles guide the creative process, building a strong foundation for your art, your creative confidence as well as an incredibly vast repertoire of techniques that stretch beyond just the art journal page.
ALL lessons are fully downloadable, which means they are yours forever to save, re-watch, rewind and to reference for a lifetime. Develop a working repertoire of tricks, product knowledge and skills while creating a years worth of art solidifying yourself as a master of your own artistic domain.--- the inspiration for this course.
For the past 7 years I have been art journaling, seriously keeping a visual diary of who I am as an Artist, developing techniques, learning new products and building a comprehensive working knowledge of working in mixed-media layers. almost religiously for the last 3 years of those 7 years, I have been keeping an "Inspiration Journal".
I have used this journal each week as a teaching tool. Just as a student practices her craft, I practiced the creative freedom of letting go, painting intuitively and learning and developing my skills as an artist. I have learned acceptance and creative confidence and in doing so, made that process open to you in the hopes of empowering you each week to believe in the process too.
During those same 3 years, I began trusting the process, I took the next leap into implementing these skills in a larger format, taking the process another step further and applying my art on canvas. I quickly learned bridging the ideas from art journals to canvas gave me a broader understanding of the medias I was working with.
