Description:

I'm tired of throwing away dried up paint markers. I'm sure you are, too. How do we rejuvenate paint markers that won't write anymore? We paint with them! Yes, PAINT! 

This isn't just basic finger painting for adults using paint markers. I've been OBSESSED with using my paint markers lately to do more than just write, draw, color and make marks with. Come to class and I'll share with you all of the ways in which, you too, can make pages as luscious as the above sample photos are (if I do say so myself!) IF YOU HAVE THEM and they're gathering dust bunnies, please bring water based paint markers (Sharpie, Posca, Molotow, Montana, Liquitex) that won't write but have gobs of paint still left in them. Bring water based paint marker refills (Molotow and Montana) that you haven't used in ages and I'll share how to use them (instead of leaving them to dry up or tossing them.) 

We will also be using acrylic paints in this workshop as well. It's a true mixed media experience!

Journey deep into a realm of luscious color, exploratory layers and expressive journal pages. BYO journal and a sense of play to this fun new workshop. Explore layers of paper, paint and pen using a plethora of creative techniques and playful exploration. 

I have been obsessed about the freedom and creative possibilities offered in this workshop. Be prepared to play, expand and experience... also, to laugh. 
 
If you have them, please bring any of your favorite water-based paint markers and refills to class (I will have a generous selection.) It's a good way to explore paint markers you might not have played with in a while. (Do NOT go out and buy paint markers for this workshop!)

Supply list: your journal, water based paint markers and refills (see above comment), IF You have a 01 Mini Catalyst Tool please bring it to class (I will have some to share), some folks are squeamish about painting with their fingers (please consider wearing finger cots or gloves. I will have my favorite barrier cream for your hands available.) an apron, scissors, a small selection of favorite collage ephemera (think about reading this when choosing your images and papers), cork back metal ruler, a full roll of paper towels OR old rags, your favorite paint brushes, a few of your favorite glue sticks (please trust me when I say that large glue sticks will last you longer. I always have two or three 40 gram glue sticks in my journal bag and that's more than enough for a long weekend. You WILL go through the smaller glue sticks in MINUTES), 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.) Also, bring baby wipes!
