Mixed Media Art Journaling
Betsy will inspire you to keep your art fresh and vibrant.
This fast paced 2 day workshop is for you if you want to improve your creativity. Using the mixed media sketchbook/journal that is provided you will create your personal reference for art making.

Betsy will show you how to assemble a sleek and simple mixed media kit that works in any space whether on the road or at your dining table. Pencils, pens, adhesives, paints, and tools will be reviewed so you can decide what you need for your own journaling kit. If you adore art supplies then you’ll be inspired to use them in new creative ways.
Most supplies and papers will be provided for you. This will enable you to try out materials to see which will work for you going forward. Your tool list will be limited and you can decide what does and does not work for you.
You will leave this workshop with a your complete Art Journal and a head full of ideas to keep your art practice fresh, vibrant and fun!
Betsy is an award winning painter who enjoys the challenge of new subjects, new mediums and new places. Capturing memories and vistas in paint on canvas or paper with oil, soft pastel, gouache, acrylic, cold wax and watercolor on location or in the studio. I enjoy them all as each offers unique qualities for each new work.
After enjoying my artist journey for over 30 years I have a new found love, teaching. I enjoy helping others avoid some of the challenges I have encountered. I have never met a new medium I’ve not enjoyed trying or teaching.
