Art Journaling kids workshops is where we get creative with many different mediums in our creative media books, our ‘journals’. It is not about writing, it is more about the process of playing with different art products. (Kids will need a journal of their own, available here in a variety of styles and sizes) Everything used in class is designed by our team and supplied on the day. We might use our beautiful acrylic paints to create an interesting background or get all creative with texture paste and stencils. We have an amazing choice of products at our fingertips! Each class is new and exciting and kids will learn so much.
Held each term fortnightly on Saturday afternoons, and sometimes in the school holidays too.

Sometimes we have occasional spaces throughout term Art Journaling kids classes – (morning and afternoon) feel free to ring to see if there is room to jump in at any stage.
As long as they have a journal (available in store) and a space to sit, we would love to have extras attend.
Some of the things we use in class
Art Journals – Large, medium or small, these have mixed media quality pages that can handle a wide variety of mediums. Prices vary between $17.95 and $45.95. Many keen art journalists have more than one. Begin with the first, you’ll soon know if you need another to play with.
Gesso – this is a great base for many of the techniques we teach . Gesso is a primer, it gives the page “tooth” so paints and more adhere well. It also is a great cover-up for any pages we want to begin again, and we also love the texture of a repainted gessoed page for more interest.
Texture Paste – A thick paste that is applied with a spatula either directly on a page or through a stencil. Gesso dries rigid and looks fabulous when used in conjunction with other mediums.
Paint – Oh boy we love paint. Predominately we have acrylic paint, but we have a certain love affair with watercolours. We teach the use of all regularly. We use paint with brushes, spatulas, plastic cards and occasionally we will even paint with a baby wipes unless of course the art calls for our fingers to get in on the action.
Sprays – Our dye sprays are vivid and we can create some amazing looks with them. This is so much fun as every spray is different, and we all love to watch as the inks run and blend.
Stencils – This is how we can get some of those awesome textures and patterns onto our pages, with so many stencils available we are sure to mix it up with different shapes and word stencils.
