We had another lovely Art Journaling workshop last Saturday sponsored by the Atlantic Center for the Arts. I am thinking about several choices for intentions we discussed for working in our Art Journal.
Here are three Intentions
1. Working on a specific goal/idea to express on the page in images
and/or words. For example, to honor a loved one or express an
emotion through your work.
2. Working intuitively. By choosing colors, images, words that speak to you in the moment gives the ability for the page to reveal its meaning
as we find why we are attracted to certain images, phrases, mantras, words to help tell our stories.
In essence, working intuitively begins with play. Playing with mark making, colors, images that speak to you.
3. Working on your visual and narrative skills.
Simply choosing to experiment as an artist, writer, and/or poet on the pages.
How do you set up intentions for your Art Journaling pages?
Next Art Journaling workshop is Second Saturday in November!
I am pleased to announce
I will be teaching a newly designed painting workshop
October 12-13 at Crealde Art School
in Winter Park, Florida titled
Flora & Fauna: Capturing the Essence of Movement in Nature
You will have a choice to work in one of two methods. Both methods will use traditional painting techniques leading into dynamic brush strokes and light effects 3/4 of the way through.
1. Work from a dynamic abstract background guiding choices of what flora and fauna imagery you will add to composition.
2.Work from a photo or drawing composition
