Right Brain Creative Drawing & Journaling Workshop

Saturday & Sunday

July 22 & 23

9:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

With Katherine England

$300 + $50 materials fee.


For Katherine, daily art journaling is her meditation, her solace, her creative challenge, and her confidant. Katherine emphasizes the act of being aware - recognizing moments and feelings without simply writing about them. This class explores and addresses the habit and ritual of daily journaling with the goal of learning self-expression in ways that are satisfying to you and visually interesting to the occasional observer. Sometimes Katherine uses her right brain and sometimes her left and sometimes the game is to use both in creating a story-telling art page. Simply writing or simply illustrating will be addressed, but students will learn new skills in using our artist eye for precise and realistic drawings and also discuss how we switch and coax a whimsical creative art piece onto our canvas. Our artwork  will be encased in a nickel silver and hand embossed book cover.  On first day of the workshop, students will learn mosaic beading to decorate the book cover, and then students will sew pages of the book together using the coptic stitch. On the second day of the workshop, students will begin to fill it with drawings, painting and other exercises in daily journaling which will focus on right brain drawing. Katherine will discuss the best pens to use and how to use watercolor and colored pencils for extra fun pages, as well as how to best keep a traveling journal as well.  Join us for a truly unique creative experience, and walk away with a beautiful hand bound journal that you will add to for years to come.
