I'll be teaching 2 new classes here in Phoenix, AZ in May and June! I wanted to tell you a little more about them, since I'm waaaay excited to teach 'em!
Saturday, May 26th: 1-4pm
Sunday June 24th: 1-4pm
This class is intended to take you through the process of binding your own sketchbook or journal. We’ll start by walking through the store to learn about the different papers you can use, then sit down to learn how to make signatures, bind the papers together, and the steps to construct a cover to create a book much like a hardcover book you’d find on your bookcase! The great thing about this class, though, is that you can finally create a sketchbook or journal that is your favorite size, with the best paper for your artwork & sketches, and personalized with a pretty cover!
Beginners are most welcome. Anyone interested in learning basic bookbinding should check this class out!
We will be browsing the store during class to help you select the best paper for what you’d like to use your sketchbook/journal for, as well as a paper to use for the cover. If you have either of these at home and want to simply bring them to class, you’re more than welcome to do so.
Paint, Play, Discover!
Sunday, June 10th: 12-3PM
This art journaling class will focus on using acrylic paints & other fun media (such as colored pencils, Neocolor II crayons, & inks) to create fun, dynamic backgrounds and accents to build a full journal page on top of. We’ll figure out what colors speak to you, go over the basics of acrylic painting on paper, and learn a few fun techniques to help the paint sing in your journal! We’ll build upon that with handwriting exercises to create flowing, lovely words and writing to capture your favorite quotes, song lyrics, and thoughts.
Beginners are more than welcome!
You can contact the store, Jerry's Artarama, directly to sign up: 480-775-6787
I hope to see you there!
