Whimsical Wash Days

"Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life."

Join us for a once-a-month hour of delving in the artistic side of life.

If you are interested in learning how to create pretty pages on which to journal, plan your days, or document your life, then this informal class is just what you need! Starting in January, you will learn how to paint backgrounds, layer with mixed media, develop pretty lettering, and more. Whether you are experienced in art or have always wanted to learn, this hour will be a place to experiment and have fun.

This class is a byproduct of experiencing the Documented Life Project at the Art to the 5th Academy. This project is part planner, part art journal, and is a beautiful way to document your life and express yourself creatively at the same time. The journal we recommend (see below) is what thousands of others will be using to document their life in 2015. You are not obligated to follow along in the Documented Life Project in order to come to this class. Come to learn, play, and let yourself go!

We need you to RSVP at the bottom of the page (in a google doc) so we can make sure our meeting space is large enough and we have enough freebies for you.
