Retro Art Journaling
Sunday, January 28, 2018  —  2:00 – 5:00pm

This art journaling class is going back to the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s for inspiration.  We will use retro booklets (mini cookbooks, pamphlets, etc.) as the base for our journals.  Then, we will use nifty, cool, far-out and totally awesome vintage magazines for visual inspiration and collage materials.  This class will be fast-paced and so much fun!   This class is the perfect starting point to get into the art journaling groove.  We will use collage, specialty markers, and papers to make original works of art in book form.  Appropriate for all skill levels and ages 13 through adult.

Cost: $55 for a 3-hour class (swell!), all supplies included.  Click HERE to register.
Group discounts available.  Contact me for rates on groups of 4 or more.
