The Painted Page

Treat yourself to two full days of getting messy with paint and making interesting pages in your visual journal. Get immersed in the process and gain a new perspective and enthusiasm for both painting and journaling.

Day One: Learn to achieve painterly surfaces with layers of texture, pattern, and color in your visual journal. Explorations with gesso and acrylic will reveal many lessons you can apply to any of your mixed media interests. We will brush, brayer, scrape, stamp and spray to create an informative dossier of painting techniques.

Day Two: Get challenged to think out of the box as you compose and complete your journal pages. We will review a number of tricks including transfers, stencils, and adding dimensional interest to your page. Be ready to work at a fast pace — we have to stay ahead of that inner critic!
