Over the weekend, we tied up the fall session of children's Creative Journalling Workshops. We met on alternate weeks created pages using monotype, stamp carving, stencil making, decorative text, 3D page construction and collage. Students ranged in age from 5 to 13, and all of them have enthusiastically embraced journalling.
A big warm thanks to the parents of my students - encouraging your child to find their own expressive voice is a tremendous gift. I thoroughly enjoyed working alongside each of my "kids," and look forward to seeing many of them return.
Our next workshop begins in January - the classes are an hour and a half on alternating Sunday afternoons. Enrollment includes all materials' costs - the students need only bring a blank book and a little bit of imagination.
Over the next 2 months I'll be researching and trying out new materials and techniques, so that we will have a realm of new experiments and ideas to try on.
Classes will be held at Little Monsters (downtown Lake Orion) from 1-2:30 on January 16th and 30th, February 13th and 27th, and March 13th. You may enroll your child in all 5 for $60 or choose individual sessions at $15 each.
I'll be happy to put together a special certificate should you want to gift the workshops to a child.
If you are interested, please let me know! Classes have limited enrollment and I anticipate them filling up quickly!
