I am so proud to announce a collaborative teaching project that I'm involved in! It's an online class held February 20th - March 18th called: Artful Pages - 4 artists 4 ways. This course combines 4 different kinds of book arts: art journaling, altered fabric pages, altered books, and vintage gluebooks. The artists teaching and their blogs are: Hope Wallace Karney, Lisa McIlvain, Lenna Young Andrews and Mary Green. Whoo whoo!
Artful Altered Book Pages with Lenna Young Andrews - Designed especially for those who would like to get started or for those who want to renew their interest in altered books, lessons include how to abandon your fear and get started, how to prepare your pages in a variety of ways and how to add ephemera, family photos and more, to personalize your pages and give them greater meaning.
Vintage Gluebooks with Mary Green - Elegantly simple, Vintage Gluebooks are created using only scissors, paper and glue! These lessons are filled with composition lessons and shortcuts, and help on creating your own vintage paper collections for your art. Mary has taught me so much!
Here's a taste of what the course will cover . . .
