Jane is one person I have wanted to take a class from for quite a few years now. I really love her journaling technique and my missing link is being able to incorporate more art in my daily journaling. I'm really happy to be able to have a great class available to me right here in Paradise. Check it out and contact Jan to join us ! Remember - September is generally a really nice month here
This is the class information directly from Jan's blog:
September 10-11, 2011 Workshop Price: $265
at Sleeping Sea Guest House
Sketching & Watercolor: Journal StyleThis workshop will be conducted at a charming, private vacation rental in Friday Harbor, that will include a variety of accommodation options for attendees on a first come/first serve basis. For more information about lodging at "Once In A Blue Moon" guest house, please check out the link on this site and contact Jan Murphy at (360) 298-2195 for reservations and additional information.
Be inspired to record your life, a special trip, or your daily adventures in a loose, quick journal style format. Spend the day discovering Friday Harbor with artist Jane LaFazio. Jane, known for her friendly, encouraging teaching style, will demonstrate drawing and watercolors on location using a straight-forward, intuitive approach. You'll draw what you see, capturing the details of the local flora & fauna, paint and then journal your thoughts and impressions on 5x7" pages. Everyone has their own drawing style, just like handwriting, and Jane will help you to see and then record what you see on paper. The class is geared for beginners, but all levels are welcome. (Really, even if you haven't drawn since 3rd grade, Jane can teach you!)
Supply list: Bring watercolors (PRANG children's watercolors are surprising good), a pencil and eraser. (Also bring a hat, small stool, sunscreen. We'll be outside, weather permitting)
Materials fee: $15. Jane will supply the 5x7" paper and a special waterbrush for each student.
