The Art Journal Road Show: the Journey Continues With Pam Carriker and Mary Beth Shaw

 In this three-day ever-evolving workshop, Pam Carriker and Mary Beth Shaw spill the tricks of the Art Journal by offering processes that range from beginner to advanced. This workshop is continually changing with new techniques and ideas suitable for any level student.

Starting with backgrounds to making collage parts to color management and composition and even interactive pages, the sky is the limit! On day one, Mary Beth and Pam volley back and forth comparing and contrasting a variety of techniques. On day two, you will spend half of the day with Pam learning the ins and outs of adding a mixed media self portrait to your journal page and the other half, Mary Beth will teach Collagraphic printing techniques. On day three you will pull all the techniques together to create the ultimate in journal pages. You will delight in how Mary Beth & Pam bounce ideas off each other and exploit all the potential of their chosen supplies. Join them for the quintessential Art Journal experience!

You will receive in-depth instruction from both Pam & Mary Beth regarding:

  • Various background techniques for creating uber-layered journal pages
  • Color Management using several types of paint - Pam Carriker paint and inks and Golden Fluid Acrylic paints (psssst, this has been described as "life changing" by many students). You will never make mud again.
  • Artistic page spreads with new tools and supplies, using the elements of design as your guide.
  • How to insure that your pages aren't "sticky".
  • Positive and negative space to help your pages pop.
  • Making your own stash of collage items using sanded paper, paint tape, Gelli plate, kraft paper, stickers and more. Learn to personalize your supplies.
  • Using cutouts or portals to add depth and detail.
  • Mark making with Liquid Pencil, nibs and Paint pens.
  • Composition and more composition, using stencils and the Golden Mean.
  • Integration of collage into backgrounds with glazing and resist techniques.
