“Instructions for living a life: Pay attention. Be astonished. Now tell about it.” - Mary Oliver.  

This class will focus on how to perfect the fine art of seeing and capturing the essence of a place, a subject, a moment (paying attention, being astonished) – with practical techniques for how to tell their story,  through watercolor sketching and journaling (telling about it).  Class will begin with a brief tutorial on how to create a simple, handmade Gellin’ Journal TM.  Students will be provided with journals pre-made with Trish’s colorful Gel Press printed papers already collaged into the pages! Classroom time will focus on Trish’s unique approach to quick watercolor sketching by drawing with her brush!  Then students will learn techniques for filling their journals - integrating their watercolor sketches with the fun printed patterns on their journal cover pages through repetitive color, lines, and shapes –the foundational design principal of harmony. Students will be inspired and encouraged to use these journals as the foundations and “seeds” for future paintings.    SO…who wants to Tell Me About Me It?! 

Trish will provide:  gel-printed watercolor sheets, needles, binding thread, handouts, stencils, paint, brushes and most importantly: INSPIRATION through various creative ephemera – ie, fun words to collage, stencils, stamps, inspirational quotes, reference material (if needed), handouts, and more.  

Supplies to Bring:  Bone Folder, Scissors, and an Awl - Trish will have a few of these for the class to borrow also 

Optional Materials to Bring: personal inspirational ephemera for the journal - favorite quotes, beautiful papers to collage, your favorite textural stamps, stencils and reference images from a trip, or whatever inspires you, note: reference images should be sized 5” h x 7”w if possible.
