This is a two-week project for sure. We are going to build a miniature accordion book in a case that can be displayed as a box—or as a dimensional accordion piece. This first week we will build background layers and then plan for a visual narrative in our book. Next week we will transfer images onto our pages and finalize dour books with embellishments.


August 7 - Miniature Accordion Book in a Box Featuring Photo Transfer Images - continued

This is the second of a two week project.  We are building a miniature accordion book in a case that can be displayed as a box—or as a dimensional accordion piece. This week we will transfer our images onto our pages and finalize dour books with embellishments. (If you missed last week, you can build background layers for your book and begin a visual narrative in our book.)


August 11 OR 14 — Art Journal Breakout: Intuitive Art Journaling

Tuesday 8/14 afternoon or evening:

Saturday 8/11 afternoon:

This week we are going to explore intuitive art making and create an art journal page or spread that will express what comes forth.   Working with guided instructions, we will use images and build layers in a way that will allow you to watch your page come to life. This is art journaling at its core—opportunity to   immerse ourselves in paint and ink and collage while gently allowing our inner selves to shine.


August 21 - Art Journal Breakout: Your Choice

Option 1: As a nice contrast to last week’s intuitive process, you can work in a more structured way and can create a mixed media art journal page or spread to express a theme in your life.  With guided instructions, you can work from background to foreground to embellishment to explore the suggested theme in your life, visually and with journaling.

Option 2: Work on a past art journal page or other project.


August 28 — Handmade paper (from scratch) and Resin Pieces

There’s nothing like making handmade art and then using it later in other art. This week, we’re going to make handmade paper from scratch. And while we’re at it, we will also play with resin and make a few resin pieces. Once dry, you will be sure to use your beautifully textured papers and fun resin pieces in your art journal and other mixed media work.

Class Supplies Lists

Most supplies are provided in our fully stocked studio. You usually bring the recommended surface and any "special to you" items for that particular project. (More about supplies in general below).

 

 

July 24 - Collage Techniques with Monoprints and Other Papers

1) Your Art Journal

2) Optional: Watercolor paper OR 3 small wood panels in the 5X7 range (5X5, 6X6, 7X8 or maybe 1-2 of the 8X10s)

July 31 - Miniature Accordian Book in a Box Featuring Photo Transfer Images

1) 2 sheets of watercolor paper

2) Optional: Images sized 1-2”.   Images are optional because we are going to plan for your images this first week so it is not necessary to have images ready.  And you can find plenty of images in the studio. However, it could be useful to bring in a selection of small images from your personal stash—or go through magazines and other media and cut out some small images. We will definitely discuss what kind of images and how to build a narrative with image choices  this week—and you will need to have them laser printed for next week. 

August 7 - Miniature Accordian Book in a Box Featuring Photo Transfer Images - continued

1. Your accordion book from last week or 2 sheets of watercolor paper.

2. Laser printed images sized 1-2”.   Last week we selected images. Please have them laser printed (not InkJet) and ready to cut and collage into your book. 

August 11, 14, 21 — Art Journal Breakouts

1. Your art journal

August 28 — Handmade Paper and Resin

1. Your art journal

2. Stay tuned for speciality supplies - or possibly a small supply fee. I'll let you know as we get closer.

What can I Expect from an Art Fix Class?

You will get individualized guidance, the structure of a project with freedom to make it your own way. We create all kinds of mixed media art projects over the weeks—from canvases to handmade books to visual art journals and more—with mediums such as collage, paint, ink, and fabric, to name a few. 

Most importantly we have fun, learn new techniques, build skills and unleash our creativity in a judgement-free, curious and enthusiastic community of art makers.

Will we finish each project in the time available for each Art Fix class?

While we try to plan projects so that we can complete them, the reality is that we all work at different paces and approach our work with different processes—and we don’t always finish our art projects in a session.  We will get as far as possible, but please give yourself the gift of the time you need—and complete a project you don't quite complete on your own either at home or during an Open Studio session at the studio. We will make sure you leave each Art Fix session knowing all the next steps.
