FREE Progressive Art Journal Workshop- All year LONG!

Almost a year ago I had an idea for an on line class. A class that would encourage my crafting friends to take the easy step towards art journaling. A class where I could share tips, techniques, videos, projects and prompts that would encourage others to try these techniques or ideas out plus take the time to create something just for themselves.  After praying and meditating on this idea I came up with this year long concept that would feature one theme per month. Each week I will share some sort of inspiration to assist in the art journaling process. This will also be a FREE class. This class is as much for me as it is for my friends, so it really makes no sense to charge.

This past year, I have found such a great comfort in Art Journaling. I have been experimenting with my art mediums and scrapbook supplies all while diving into my art journal. It is my goal to share what this past year has done for me here on my blog, and along with that share some amazing techniques that I have come up with along the way.

I invite all of you to join me this year as I share from my heart my own art journaling journey and crafty adventures. I have invited a few of my industry friends to join in each month as well, and I know that they will have just the right words and inspiration to share with you.




So here are the details:

WHAT- To produce some sort of inspiration for a weekly art journal page or prompt
WHEN- ALL of 2012, STARTING FRIDAY, JANUARY 27TH, 2012
WHO- ANYONE WHO NEEDS A TIME TO RELAX AND CREATE :)
WHY- to create a fun environment of creative people who inspire each other freely
WHERE- Right here, on my blog Subscribe via Google Reader or through my newsletter.

To kick this off I will be doing a GIVEAWAY of an art journal kit to get you going. I will pick one winner here on the blog when I return from CHA. Winner will be announced MONDAY FEBRUARY 6TH 2012. To be entered for the prize package, simply commit to the year long progressive art journal workshop. You can do this by signing up for my newsletter or following me on google reader. This is the best way to find out when the new prompts are available. The titles of these posts will have the abbreviation of PAJWLH (Progressive Art Journal Workshop Liz Hicks) in their name so they will be easy for you to find.

I am so excited for what this next year has to bring. I look forward to getting to know you all better through this journey and creating beautiful art together.
