April 18 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 5:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until April 25, 2019
Mary Alice Ramsey will offer classes in Visual Journaling during the months of April and May at Pink Dog Creative in the River Arts District of Asheville. A visual journal is a sketchbook containing both words and mixed media art. No artistic background or drawing experience is necessary to be very successful in this creative expression.
The first class, entitled Mixed Media Backgrounds, will meet in April on Thursday evenings from 5:00 until 7:00 in suite 101 at Pink Dog Creative, http://www.pinkdog-creative.com/ 344 Depot Street. Those dates are April 4, 11, 18 and 25. Topics will be Backgrounds and Borders, Stamps and Stenciling, Collage and Layering, and Image Transfers. Tuition for April is $200 plus a $10 materials fee.
These classes are designed for either artists or non-artists who wish to create mixed media pages that include varieties of expressive lettering. Each participant will produce several complex colorful journal pages and will gain the expertise to continue working independently. It is recommended, for best results, that students take both classes. A second class in Lettering Variations will be offered in May. Both classes are high-energy and hands-on.
Mary Alice Ramsey is an artist, teacher, book-maker, writer and performance poet who has kept visual journals for twenty-five years. Contact her for additional information or to sign up at [email protected] or at 828-275-7071. Enrollment is limited.
