Transformation: Peeling Back the Layers with Kelly Kilmer


April 29, 2017
10 am – 6 pm
Student level: All

What will be uncovered and revealed in this all day workshop?
You will begin by transforming an old hardcover book (provided) into a uniquely layered journal full of texture and color. 

Jump right in with layers of paper, paint and more. You will start by creating pages that are rich and full of depth. You will then step back and peel away the layers transforming your previous pages into something entirely new and fresh. Learn to rework, revise and transform your pages with layers of color, texture, text and pattern.

Create something that is truly one of a kind using your favorite every day supplies.

Be prepared to get messy and to walk away with a new journal, several finished pages and a desire to keep working. 

Bring your lunch so that we can eat while we work (more time for art!) There is a fridge where you can keep things cold.

Early bird signup date: March 28 ($180)
Final registration date: April 17 ($200)
