Transform your relationship with paper with Roben-Marie as she guides you through an in-depth, hands-on study of the architecture of an art journal she nicknamed “DJ”- short for Dictionary Journal.

$65



 


You will build your own creative cache of papers
(let’s start by downloading colorful handmade prints),
and then build your art journal step-by-step.


Innovate your pages using the architecture of the journal -
learn how to create both within the pages and on the pages
by layering color, paper and texture.

Once completed, we will work through 4 pages together -
watch and hear the process of building a page in this unique
style combining paper, paint and handmade elements.

 

This is not your expected "build an art journal" class. We will journey from start to finish - creating your own art journal - (you aren't required to name it but you may want to consider it!) the how’s, the why’s and the where’s.


as she shares where she shops for her old books, vintage papers, her unusual papers and her “don’t throw that away!” pieces through virtual field trips and online sources.
