Wabi Sabi Art Journal Nov. 7



4-Week Class
Saturdays, Nov. 7-28
12 Noon-1:30 pm (PST) / 3:00-4:30 pm (EST)
Live Zoom Class

Wabi Sabi is a Japanese philosophy that believes beauty can be found in what is naturally imperfect, aged and weathered. In this class, you will be creating and customizing your own handmade art journal from scratch. Then through a variety of mixed media techniques such as texturizing, collaging, asemic writing, mark making and acrylic applications, you will transform your journal pages into art that capture the feel of Wabi Sabi. In this class, you will also be creating your own unique and rich collage materials. We will cover a variety of techniques such as Citra Solv Nat Geo pages, fabric paper, painted cheesecloth and more. Prior experience working with acrylic paints and mediums is recommended. Color mixing knowledge a plus. Adults 18+

Below is a list of materials you will need for this class.

If you are unable to make any of the classes, no worries, I will be recording each session so they will be available for later viewing during the duration of the class, plus a week after the class has ended.

This class is available to take as a Non-Zoomer Option (See below for more information).

Non-Zoomer Option

Non-Zoomer Option
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 sending 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 sending 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.
