Spreading the News!



I'm excited to announce that I'll be teaching a class in  Sketchbook and Watercolor Journaling at the Oak Park Art League this winter! In the seven session class I'll share the techniques I use in my "out and about" sketchbooks. We'll cover different types of journals, materials, speed and memory drawing techniques, page layout and quick journal style formats and tricks. We'll also talk about combining the best of two worlds – the richness of your hand drawn journal pages and sharing those pages with the online artist community.

I hope if you live in the area you'll join us!

Congratulations! I am sure it will be a great class, because your sketches are so good - I especially like your ability to layout and frame the drawings.

Barbara,
Barbara,
I discovered your art blog just recently and I love your work. I would love to take a class with you - I'm a beginning watercolor journalist - but I don't live in Chicago. I would gladly come to Chicago for a weekend class in sketch journaling with you, if you ever decide to teach a class over a weekend.

Please think about it!

It's something I might consider in the future. In the meantime there are many classes for beginners online. Cathy Johnson (http://cathyjohnson.info) and Laure Ferlita (http://paintedthoughtsblog.blogspot.com) both have great classes.
