Uncover artistic jewels through spontaneous play and mixed media techniques. In this live online class we will create abstract and artistic pages. Through a variety of techniques that incorporate weaving remnants, fabric paper, textures, mending pages and more you will produce exciting and unexpected results. This new collection of pages will be the perfect addition to your existing Book of Creative Discoveries or inspire you to create a whole new one.
Join me in this 6 week LIVE online class where we can create “together” yet in the comfort and safety of our own homes.
Below is a class schedule with dates along with what techniques we will be working on each week.
If you are unable to make any of the classes, no worries, I will be recording each class so they will be available for later viewing during the session.
New to using Zoom? I will be offering a warm up session a few days before the class begins to help you get familiar with the process of how it all works, so you can feel comfortable taking a class online (To be announced).
You can also watch this quick video on how to join the classroom
Do you feel overwhelmed by the thought of using Zoom? Don’t have a computer with video & audio? Or you just would prefer not to attend an online class live?
No worries. I realize that the whole tech stuff can be a huge learning curve for many and can be overwhelming. It’s more important to me that this class is available to everyone on different levels, so you have the following Non-Zoomer Options to take this class.
Audio Only: You can attend the class LIVE without having to be on video, but you have the ability to ask me questions through audio only. You also have access to send me instant messages in Zoom.
Watch Only: You can attend the class LIVE without video & audio, but still have the ability to view the class through watch only. You also have access to send me instant messages in Zoom if you have any questions.
Email Recordings: You don’t need to attend any of the Zoom classes LIVE, but instead you have the option to take the class by watching the recordings that will be emailed to you after each weekly class has ended. You will receive all the same PDFs of weekly lessons and instructions. You will also be able to email me with any questions about the project and techniques. With this option, since you also receive the Zoom Classroom link weekly, you will have the freedom to join the classes LIVE if you ever change your mind. Recordings will be available for viewing for the duration of the class only.
Below is a list of materials you will need. I’ve tried to make it some what easy so only a few items may need to be purchased.
You will not need all the materials on the first week and will have some time to order items you don’t have.
You will receive an email a few weeks prior, with a detailed schedule and what materials you will need at each class session.
