It's here! Today I can finally tell you what the videotaping shenanigans have been all about...I am excited to announce that I am one of the teachers in this spring's 21 SECRETS Art Journaling Class "emBODY".

Taking a Journey into the Expressive Figure

If you want to bring embodiment to some of those lovely faces in your art journal, but the idea of figure drawing has seemed too difficult or intimidating, this mixed media workshop can help you get started. By using altered images and collage, creating loose contour drawings and through
exploring line, shape and color, we will begin bringing our expressive figures into the picture. The emphasis here will be on expression, connection and kindness. No anatomy studies will be necessary!

As those of you who have followed my work know, I LOVE painting faces. However, I started to really feel the call to give those souls who appear in my work somewhere to live, in other words...to give them bodies! These are some of the simple techniques I used to begin getting figures into my journal pages and onto the canvas.

    I created this class with a few things in my heart. First, I want each student to feel encouraged to begin putting their own bodies into their pages and into their individual stories. Next, I hope that you are reminded over and again to approach, not only the art journal page, but your own precious body with a spirit of kindness and love. And finally, I hope that this workshop will help you begin to trust (or strengthen the trust that is already there) the wisdom of both your pages and your body. I hope to see you in class!
