Art Camp at Home #6 – Kelly Kilmer Online!

This week’s Art Camp at Home  features a new online class with Art Journaling Artist and blogging expert Kelly Kilmer.

Kelly’s newest class is Ways of Seeing, An Artist’s Guide to Composition and Design.

KKilmer 2014-001

Kelly’s classes are always hands-on instruction and you learn by doing. All of Kelly’s online classes are loaded with techniques and generally use supplies you already have on hand. Best of all Kelly has maintained her low, low, low price of  $20.00 for this class. The class includes access to Kelly throughout the class.  There is also a student forum to share your work and interact with the other students via Yahoo. And, if you are new to Art Journaling, this is a great way to try it on to see if it fits. You can take this class anytime, anywhere.

Kelly has several other online classes in a comparable price range available once you are over at her blog.  She also has a number of in-person workshops through out the year. She teaches regularly in California and the Southwest (AZ & CO) and also hits the East Coast (MA & NY) once or twice a year.

Kelly was one of my first art journaling teachers. She has been my mentor (even if she doesn’t know it) since 2009.

After taking my first in-person class with her in 2009 I signed up for her “A Prompt a Day” online class. I think I did A Prompt a Day every month for 5 or 6 months. During that time I made a full journal spread almost every day! This is when my habit of art journaling every day was established.

We never managed to get her to an Art Camp for Women in Colorado, but it was not for lack of trying!

So whether you are new at Art Journaling and Mixed-media art or an old hand – you will get more than your money’s worth with Kelly Kilmer.

Art Camp at Home #5 – Carla Sonheim Online!

After a week off for Spring Break we are back at it again! Art Camp at Home resumes with a couple of weeks featuring sites with a variety of online mixed-media art classes.

This week we feature Carla Sonheim’s Online Classes page. Her next ‘live’ class is DRAW and registration is now open.Carla Sonheim

Here is what Carla says about herself:

“If you don’t know me, my name is Carla Sonheim and I am an artist and author of several instructional drawing and mixed-media books. I’m known for my projects and techniques that help adult students recover a more spontaneous, playful approach to creating!

Carla has several types of online classes.

drawingcsonheimclass

  • For this year she also has a year-long class that can be joined anytime within 2014.

Year of the Fairy Tale

  • There are also Visiting Artist classes with artists featuring everything from Abstract Art Making to Zentangles, including Steve Sonheim with Photography classes.
  • She also has Self-Study classes, which are classes she has run in the past and are now available for you to take with little or no instructor and classmate participation at a lower cost.

Also Carla has a number of free tutorials that will give you a sense of her teaching style so you can see which of her classes are for you.

The best way to keep up with which classes are current is to sign up for her newsletter once you get to her site!

“I have taken both in-person classes and online classes with Carla. Both have been jam-packed and intense! I come away with my head buzzing with new ideas and techniques and a sense that I too, am an artist. I don’t know which of these is more valuable!”  – Lori Wostl, Art Camp for Women

It appears that her classes run from $25.00 to $198 for the year-long class. (That’s less than $4.00 a week.)
