I am delighted to be returning to teach at The Ink Pad here in NYC. This is the last East Coast class I will be teaching for about a year.
Ruin and Rescue
an all day art journaling workshop
Over the years I have learned that my art journal is a great place for artistic experiments. It’s all about ruin and rescue. By discovering that virtually all “mistakes” could be “fixed,” I gained confidence and lost the fear of ruining my artwork. Come and spend the day learning a panoply of techniques for layering, collaging, doodling, and creating wonderful new things from the ashes of old projects.
- Journal (old or new)
- 6-10 colors of acrylic paint (including black) – any brand
- Collage Materials: book pages, scrapbook paper, telephone book pages, newspaper, security envelopes, photos, photocopies
- 6-10 sheets of plain white cardstock
- Wide Masking Tape
- Permanent Black Pen
- Pencil and White Eraser
- Bristle Paintbrushes: Small Round, Medium Round, Large Flat
- Container for Water
- Matte Medium
- Paper Plate or other paint palette
- Cosmetic Sponges
Here are the exact brands I use from the list above:
Optional for Students to Bring:
- Discarded Art Projects: Small projects on paper or fabric that didn’t work out or you no longer wish to finish.
- Anything that’s on your “must-have” art journaling list (favorite pens, spray inks, stamps, stencils, craft knife, washi tape, etc.)
- Heat Gun, Extension Cord, Power Strip
- Baby Wipes, Paper Towel, or a Rag
- Black China Marker
- Watersoluble Pencil (my fave is Stabilo)
- Wax Paper (to keep your pages from sticking)

Again, here are the specific brands I use from the list above:
