Bring your Sketchbooks!

Join Harper Leich in The Goldenrod Studio in The Canopy at Art Garden AVL for this workshop!

This 3 hour course is open to anyone with a sketchbook who wants to play together!

In this workshop together, we’re going to explore ways to embellish the drawings and paintings and ink washes (or whatever!) that you already have in your sketchbook as a way to bring more depth and playfulness to the pages. We’ll also talk about how adding journaling into our art can be a really great way to record our experiences while adding visual interest.

If you don’t already have a sketchbook full of drawings or paintings to embellish, you are still welcome! You can work on a page in class, employing some of the techniques we will cover.

At the beginning, I will show some examples of adding embellishments within my own sketchbook. I will then demo gold leaf technique, rainbow ink wash, and introduce materials.

I will supply: Gold Leaf and adhesive, vintage books and contemporary magazines for collage material (plus adhesive), watercolor inks for washes, acrylic paint markers, glitter paint, and glitter, colored pencils, etc.

After the demo period, we’ll work independently together on our pages. I’ll be available for any questions or guidance along the way.
