Using Sketching and Watercolor to Create a Beautiful Journal of Your Life
Today highly experienced artist and art-journaling teacher Jane LaFazio will create a relaxed, fun, supportive, non-judgmental environment to inspire us to create an authentic artistic record of how we see the world. Using a straightforward and intuitive approach to drawing and watercolor, she will equip us with the skills and confidence we need to create an incredible memory journal of our life. In this workshop, geared to beginners but open to all levels, Jane will show us how to: take the time to carefully observe an object before starting to draw it; pick and mix the right colors to capture the right shade or feeling; find our own drawing and painting unique style; and much more.

Spend the day drawing and painting objects from real life in a relaxed supportive environment. Jane will show you how to take the time to really look at the item in front of you and draw what you see, not what you think you see. (Haven't drawn since the third grade?

You’ll a few pages as unique as your own handwriting. Jane will show you how to enhance your drawings with creative page layouts and journaling.
Bring something to draw. I'm thinking this would be the perfect year to create your own illustration for your holiday cards. Poinsettia, dreidel, pinecone, or holiday ornament? Bring a selection of things to draw. Fresh flowers, and veggies are always good!
