Workshop | Tell Your Story: Visual Journal Pages as Narrative with Kelly Kilmer
Instructor: Kelly Kilmer
Date: Saturday evening, June 10th 2017
Time: 6:00 - 9:00 3 hours
Class Fee: $75
Where do we start when we put pen to paper? How do we translate what is in our heads to our visual art journal pages? How do we combine the visual with the written word?
Learn to combine paper, paint and pen to create visually expressive and unique journal pages. In this class, you will learn a plethora of layering techniques using not only your pens and markers but also paint, paper and more. Think that you know what there is to putting your heart onto paper? Think again. I first developed this class to challenge myself and now I'm challenging you. Bring your journal and the supplies listed below (I will have plenty of art supplies to share as I don't travel light) and be prepared to spill out onto the page.
Supply list: a journal, an apron, scissors, a small selection of favorite collage ephemera (think about reading this 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 (if you have one), a container for your paint water, 1" 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
