You are registering for a live on-line workshop on the Zoom platform. All sessions are recorded and will be available for registrants for playback in case they need to miss a session in person.
We will explore the art journaling practice of the selected influencer/artist. Our focus will be on artists who share process videos and use a mixed media approach.
Our time together will be spent in study and observation of the selected artist of the session for the first 15-20 minutes. After our visual inspiration we will work together in our own individual journals applying what we've seen as we use our own supplies.
This practice of consuming inspiration and responding in creative action has been the most powerful catalyst in growing my confidence in art making.
How many times do you swipe through social media admiring the work of these wonderful, talented and generous artists and think, I'd like to try that?
Our Under the Influence series is your opportunity to do exactly that in community. You will be guided and promted by watching Andrea, Artist and Session Facilitator, work along with you real time. We call this "parallel play".
Basic Supply List: (customized kits can be put together in our online shop here)
We will be creating a custom "junk" journal to be used in the following weeks of this Under the Influence series to house your art journal spreads. The types of papers you include are entirely up to you but be sure to have plenty of watercolor/mixed media paper and manila folders as those are my favorite surfaces for sturdy art journal pages.
Andrea Chebeleu is the artist and entrepreneur behind A Work of Heart Studio. A creative innovator from a very young age, Andrea enjoys a challenge and most of all figuring out how to make art with what’s on hand. As an art instructor, her greatest joy comes from leading students through a process that, on the surface, looks complex but is achieved in simple steps. Andrea's students appreciate her knowledge of materials, techniques and "try it and see what happens" attitude. Creativity comes intrying and retrying. Andrea takes the fear of trying in her approach of "first, not only." While it may be the first time you’ve tried this, it’s not your only time. Students are empowered to freely approach learning with playful curioisty.
