new class from KELLY KILMER

i was able to take kelly's online class last year and LOVED it. worth every single penny. i promise.

A Life Made By Hand

Class runs from January 1st through June 30, 2010

Now taking sign ups

$50 (that’s about $8 a month! $ 0.28 a day!)

Journaling isn’t about pretty pages. It isn’t about creating a work of art, either. It’s about learning and exploring who you are. It’s about blending the idea of an artist’s sketchbook/workbook, self exploration and introspective diary keeping. It’s any and all of those things, and so much more.

It is a journal class, yet it's similar to all of my classes where the classes aren't just techniques that you can use in one single form of art but in every form of mixed media art. It's a hodge podge of a class-a mix of this and that. Students will receive a prompt every single day- they can take that idea and create a page (or even a scrapbook page, or an atc or canvas or any kind of mixed media project) in 15 minutes or less. The site where the prompts are posted will be loaded with photos, information, ideas, tips, tricks and techniques. It's going to be a wealth of information. It's journaling but I will also be focusing on teaching a plethora of collage techniques, demos and instructions in the class. The collage ideas that I like to offer are design and composition tips, tricks and techniques disguised as FUN collage pages (that will push and prod even the most experienced collage artist). The journal prompts aren't your average run of the mill writing prompts either. They are designed to make you think and to dive deep. I want them to relate to everyone and not just a handful of people. It's meant to be a fun class that anyone can do at any time. It's great if you can do a page a day, if not, the information is available for you to download and work at your own pace. It's not meant to be hard or to have any pressure. It's meant to inspire, nurture and encourage.

By the way, none of the prompts relate to a specific date. They are labeled with numbers, not dates so that they can be done at any time.

  1. Hi Shosh,
    I just signed up for Kelley's new workshop. We were in her workshop last year. Remember that I initiated the journal pages swap?
    Never heard anything about that - could you please contact me? (AngelikaWestermann@gmx.de).
    Cheers, Angelika
