    In this playful one day workshop, we’ll create two mixed media sketchbook pages - one layered, and one simple. We’ll start off with the building blocks: colors, marks, lines, shapes, textures, words, and thoughts. Then we’ll choose one favorite element to feature on the simple page. The rest will become a patchwork of sorts on the layered page. It’s a great way to to make use of *all the things* you create - even the things that seem imperfect. One 4 hour session. Maximum of 10 students.

    (Please sign up no later than noon Sept. 8th to ensure time to receive class link)


    ***I am providing my favorites in parentheses, but please feel free to use what you have/prefer.  

    a sketchbook (I use a Global Arts Hand Book Journal 5.5 x 5.5 in.)

    some separate drawing paper and/or watercolor paper for collage possibilities - loose or in a pad 

    (I use a 4x6 in. Global Arts Handbook drawing pad) 

    a lined journal for writing practice (or you could just use your sketchbook) 

    a glue stick (I use Uhu) 

    a pair of scissors

    a pencil & eraser (I use a mechanical pencil) 

    a pen (I use a Uniball Vision - micro)

    colored pencils, pastels, watercolors (or any other medium you feel comfortable using) 

    *if you are new to art making, please feel free to choose one medium! perhaps in a variety of colors

    *if applicable, please be sure to have a pencil sharpener, brushes, a rag, a container of water

    a book to use for word gathering (we will just be writing words down from it, not cutting the book up) 

    a treasured object to use as a drawing reference - perhaps a teacup or a pair of shoes. 

    anything you might want to incorporate into the collage work on your layered page: masking tape, fabric swatches, handmade papers, tea bag paper, etc.
