Workshop | Book of Intentions with Kelly Kilmer
Book of Intentions
Instructor: Kelly Kilmer
Date: Saturday Morning, June 10th 2017
Time: 9:30 – 4:00 (6hours with a half hour lunch break)
Class Fee: $150
We will begin this class with a bit of recycling. You will transform found ephemera, acrylics, some of my most favorite art supplies, as well as a few new tricks and techniques into a new and unique to you journal. I have never taught journal making quite like this before and I am excited to share it with you! You will create entirely unique to you pages that set your intentions for the coming year. Think of it as a vision board meets planner all combined and rolled up into a very expressive (and impressive) art journal. Learn to combine the visual with the written to create soulful and inspirational pages. Lao Tzu once said,"To see things in the seed, that is genius." What ideas will spark your interest in this all day, (painted) hands on workshop? Be prepared to have fun, get messy and leave inspired!
Supply list: an apron, scissors, a small selection of favorite collage ephemera (think about reading this class description when choosing your images and papers), bone folder, cork back metal ruler, a full roll of paper towels OR old rags, permanent black ink pad (only if you have one), a container for your paint water, 1 to 2" brush to glue and paint (I like chip or bristle brushes) as well as a few, smaller, detailed brushes, a few of your favorite glue sticks (large glue sticks will last you longer), roll of waxed paper OR an old catalog or magazine to glue on (if you don't want to use all of your waxed paper for this.)
A Note from Kelly:
My workshops aim to teach a variety of NEW ideas involving collage, creative processing,
self- expression, composition, design, layering, painting and much, much more. My workshops are always process-based learning while creating a unique product. I am well known for not traveling light and bring a large variety of supplies including (but not limited to) collage material, rubber stamps, stencils, pens, markers, tape and more.
Beginners to advanced students are welcome in ALL of the classes. The class fee includes a vast array of mediums and materials to complete the necessary project. It is well known that I do not travel light to any of my classes.
I DO NOT travel light to my classes at all !!!
I will be bringing and supplying for the class such things as:
• all materials necessary to complete the project (handmade paper, decorative paper, board, glue, etc...) bookbinding supplies (thread, awl, needles)
• rubber stamps, ink pads
• decorative tape, collage ephemera and other goodies
• pens and markers
