I’m very pleased to announce that my July guest artist lesson for The Journey Within 2016 – book making and art journaling online course with Kiala Givehand is now available in the course portal! For those who are not signed up for the course, it’s not too late to sign up for the 3rd Quarter here.
This is my first time teaching online and I really enjoyed the process of making the videos for my lesson and a chance to share one of the ways I love to journal with Zentangle, as well as making a simple textured finger labyrinth for your journal. So I went a bit overboard for my offering and there are 4 videos up, including a mini Zentangle intro lesson and a pretty good sized pdf! The 2 lessons and bonus lesson serve as a good reminder to slow down and enjoy the process – carve some time out for yourself and find your flow!
In my last post I showed just a tease of the journal page I created for my lesson, and I’ll post the full spread here so you’ll get and a better idea of what we’ll be making for the journal spread. I’ve also made some fun discoveries since filming the journal spread that I’ll share with the Google Plus group that course attendees have access to!
If you sign up for the 3rd Quarter and you’ll have access to the July/August/Sept book structures, artist journaling lessons and bonus lessons that Kiala often adds to the course, as well as the Google Plus group! If you end up loving it… you can sign up for the next quarter when it’s ready, or even the full year and get the lessons from the last 6 months. A great summer and beyond project, and the diversity of teaching styles is really tremendous! I am pleased to be bringing some Zentangle to the mix!
It’s been a busy busy month for me! I came home last week from leading a week-long workshop in Zentangle with an intergenerational Friends group (Quakers) at Friends General Conference which was held this year near St. Cloud, Minnesota. It was a week of tangling, worship, color and pattern. I’ll leave you with a few pics of some of the group’s artwork below.
Wishing you many opportunities to relax, chill out and connect with that inner spark…..
