|"Play & Art" collage by Lani, textures by FlyPaper.|
Are you attending the Master Class Visual Art Journaling: Remembering Who We Are with a Daily Art Practice, Expressive Therapies Summit in NYC, Friday, November 11th, 2016, with Susan Anand and Lani Gerity?We will be learning how to create a simple art journal from basic office supplies and then actually working in them with a series of very easily adaptable directives. When you arrive we’ll have a link for you to download a “zine” of instructions and directives to keep.
There will be basic art supplies provided but we highly encourage you to look at this list, prepare ahead and bring some fun collage materials. The thing with learning a new skill is that it is so much easier if you are using images and materials you love. This will be a time to create and play with your best stuff!
You might think about bringing some of these items:
Gaffer’s tape or hockey tape (cloth tape)
Fabric samples and any favorite paper scraps.
Wall paper samples, scrapbooking card stock, craft tags, blank artist trading cards, index cards and heavier scraps.
Magazine images, photo images, printed images for collage which could include human figures (when collecting human figures it’s an interesting exercise to look for images that match the demographic that you happen to work with), animals, interesting environments, interesting objects that could represent gifts and treasures, maps and of course wings. Let your intuition be your guide.
Interesting text, positive and inspirational words are always good, different fonts can be interesting.
Your favorite fibers and waxed thread is good for the simple binding.
Embellishments, beads, charms, watch parts, etc.
Your favorite pens (sharpies, paint, gel, etc.) to include written text.
Any favorite stamps and stamp pads.
And of course your creativity, inspiration, and sense of playful fun (most important).
