What you'll do

Your Art Journal will be a handmade book that can provide you insight, inspiration, strength and purpose. Your Journal will include a cover and pages that are created free-style, by mixing a variety of art mediums, art forms and specialized techniques. You are making a marvelous, multi-media expression of your self — for yourself. COVER You will begin by creating the cover. Paperboard, cardboard or canvas will be the underlying surface. INSIDE PAGES For the inside pages, an eclectic selection of paper and fabrics will be used as surfaces. From Rice paper to hand-made abaca paper to muslin to silk, we have a huge selection of materials which can be combined any number of ways (see "What's Included"). EMBELLISHING YOUR COVER AND INSIDE PAGES You can create layers of color, texture, pattern and design with a mix of mediums and techniques. From acrylics to India inks to botanical dyes to pastels, we have a ginormous supply of mediums (see “What’s Included”). You can add collage to your journal, selecting from a bountiful collection of magazines, books, newspapers and our special box of random words, phrases and quotes. Your own written word can also be layered for a touch of personal meaning. BINDING YOUR BOOK The final step is binding all your pages into book form. Your Art Journal will be a strong, secure, beautiful representation of what is significant and inspiring to you.

Learn more about Jessica

Jessica

Through my years of working in the tourism industry, I traveled extensively throughout South America and the Caribbean. In spite of my busy schedule, I was able to carve out time for personal study with indigenous artists in remote and magical locations. From these experiences I bring native elements of simplicity, intuition and authenticity to the teaching process. When facilitating others in art-making, I follow a “whole-person” approach. This includes supporting people as they learn specific visual art techniques, while at the same time exploring their inner world and aspects of light and shadow, as catalysts for creative expression. If you wish to extend your Experience, the studio fee is $45 per hour, for a maximum of 2 additional hours. Private booking is also available. Please request further information.
