Brushstrokes: Playful, Paint Applications on Journal Pages
Instructor: Kelly Kilmer
Date: Friday evening, June 9th 2017
Time: 6:00 - 9:00 3 hours
Class Fee: $75
Let's get messy! Explore, experiment and play with paint in this colorful and fun workshop. We'll start by collaging our pages and then it's time to pull out the paint! You will learn everything I know about acrylics, mediums as well as a plethora of ways to apply acrylics to our journal pages (or canvas, walls, etc...) Explore color, texture and depth as you create original and luscious pages.
You will also love making your own unique (softcover) sampler to remember all of these techniques later on.
Student Supply list: your journal to work in, 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 water, 1” or 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.) Any supplies you may need are available for purchase at the Queen’s Ink.

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.
