Upcoming Classes!

So I've been terribly busy with getting my house ready to put on the market and it is such a relief to say that IT'S DONE! It's never looked so good (I certainly couldn't live this clean all the time) but it's attracting buyers, so that's good! 

I am on the road quite a bit this month teaching a bunch of exciting classes, so if you're local to these places I'd love to see you! Classes are almost full (and I think they might be sold out in Nanaimo) so call ASAP!! 

Vancouver Island/Nanaimo
The Art of Journaling: A Comprehensive Mixed Media Workshop
Saturday July 12 9:30 - 4:00 pm includes a 30 minute break for lunch
Cost: $81
Instructor: Tobi Crawford
What is the with this trend of Art Journals and Mixed Media? And what do those terms even mean?? Art Journalling is different for for each person and there are as many techniques as there are artists on the planet, BUT, there are quite a few techniques that every art journaller considers staples in their "bag of tricks" and we will work through many of them. I will be using a lot of different mediums and tools to allow you to discover what your thing is, and will hopefully shed the light on what "Mixed Media" and more importantly, "Art Journalling" means for you. You will be asked to bring materials such as: acrylic paint, Dylusions Ink Sprays, glimmer mists, stencils, stamps, gelatos, Pitt Pens, but if you do not have something, I will have plenty to share!

Watercolour Wonders with My Favourite Things
Sunday July 13 10:30 am - 1:00 pm
Cost: $37
Instructor: Tobi Crawford
A great love of mine is colouring and I love to share tips and tricks with people who are curious about: shading, light source, contrast, and blending and we will be using the very user-friendly medium of watercolour markers to explore those topics. Once we are done with our colouring masterpieces we will make four super-cute cards that will showcase all of your hard work!! I used a combination of Tombow and Distress Markers for watercolouring, along with a waterpen. Please feel free to bring any watercolour markers you have and make sure you have a waterpen! You will also receive a list of basic cardmaking tools to bring.
