From the workshop brochure

Here is what I will be doing this weekend. i cannot wait to show you guys what I learn!

The first one is all about journaling. Both [of us] will guide you in first making a 16 page (8x10) journal out of our favorite fabriano paper and then practicing the techniques you learn in class in your new journal during the 2-day event. Topics will include journal writing, collage, stamp carving, lomography, color, lettering, copic airbrush, doodling and more. We will also discuss how to open yourself to the universal creative flow so the art and writing bubbles up from deep inside. We will focus on the playful aspect of journaling through guided excercises that will allow your creativity to come spilling out. This workshop starts on a friday night at our studio when you can wander around and see what goodies we have collected over the past 25 years. We will also paint the pages of our journal firday evening so they have a chance to dry. Then saturday and sunday will be devoted to journaling up a storm as we teach you fun things that will make journaling seem like playing in a sandbox.

Chris' idea of a fun weekend would involve Titleist golf in some form, but this art stuff is the fun for me!
