Beyond every obstacle lies an opportunity.....
In this artist workshop you will begin a journey in your sketchbook in a way you may not be used to working. Using personal images, text, painting and drawing you will be encouraged to transform your sketchbook into a work of art as a personal journey. A visual journal sketchbook is a way to express your inner voice through personal observations, and your past experiences. The artist within you, is a storyteller just waiting to unleash a journey using the universal visual language of lines, shapes, and colors.
Before packing your art supplies for this adventure of journal art spilling, you will need to bring a sketchbook with “prepared” pages to get journaling when you arrive. This will ensure you will be able to plunge right in with a variety of art media methods and techniques to get your creative juices flowing upon on the pages. You will be encouraged to journal in your sketchbook with what ever media you love most. Paint, pen, pencil, ink, and collage. Your sketchbook journal may be strategically planned out or be about your experience as you go through your daily revelations and the beauty of the Island when you engage in your Yoga/Art retreat.
I enjoy the process of collaborating with other artists, so, at the end of the workshop I will invite you to participate in a ‘round-robin’ sketchbook collaboration. We will each pass forward a Moleskine sketchbook after completing a work of art, to the round-robin participants. At the end the process, you will have the original sketchbook you started with a unique art collection from each of the artists from the retreat. As the ‘skines are filling and you are spilling, it is my hope to document and share the images on my blog which I will specially design in celebration of our journeys of art spill. Join us in a creative art journal spilling process as you unleash the newest marks of your visual story.
