This is a great introduction to mixed media and art journaling! Using Inks and Stencils is really the core to a lot of mixed media and paper techniques. In this one-day workshop we will learn about different inks and uses with Distress Oxide Ink Pads and Sprays, Dylusions Spray Inks and several other inks. We will use an assortment of stencils and techniques!, Distress Oxide Ink. We will use our papers to make a mini art journal! The workshop is Tuesday, October 29 from 10AM to 3PM (we will order Pizza for lunch) and is $100. If you are interested in this workshop on a Saturday, let me know and we will get it scheduled!
Keep an eye out here for upcoming Beginning Zentangle classes! I have several coming up, but have several items on backorder, so as soon as they arrive, I'll put the dates out!
Gemstones are back! and just in time for the Holidays! Our December weekly series will be centered around drawing gemstones into our artwork! I've been teaching this technique for several years and the results are always amazing! We will focus on how to incorporate them into designs for cards, holiday, or any day kind of cards! Tuesdays at 1PM to 3:30PM or 6PM to 8:30PM December 3, 10 and 17 $100 includes all supplies

See a class you are interested in but it's not on the schedule? Class offered during the day but you need an evening class? Just contact me and I'll try to add it for a time that works for you when I schedule the next set of classes :)
Throughout the year I teach a number of classes at off site locations that are open to the public, Vestavia Hills Library in the Forest is one location I teach at several times a year. For these classes you will need to register with the host.
Weekly after school classes are based around a method of pattern drawing called Zentangle. It helps develop drawing skills. We also use other media - black and white ink, collage, kirigami, and we will use our skills to create a mixed media scene in a shadow box in November.
Classes are $90 per month (4 weeks) if paid in advance, or $35 per class.

"It’s amazing! This is my third year taking classes, I started when I was 11, and I love all of it!"
ATTENDANCE POLICY: Any class that is missed without notification will be charged the full rate. If your child has a commitment come up (band concert, field trip, etc.), if you let me know a week in advance I can adjust the schedule and there will be no charge for that class. If a child is ill and misses class (and you let me know they are ill that day), the first miss per semester will not be charged, but additional misses will be charged at the full rate.
We've made cards and gifts for a lot of different occasions including Valentines's Day, Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Halloween, and Christmas!
I teach them the tangles and then their imaginations go wild!
Adding mixed media to Zentangle is always a lot of fun! We have used Brush Markers, Paint, Collage, and even dyed scarves!
