Art Camp at Home #1! Artstronauts by Tracy and Teesha Moore

For the next few weeks we will be running a series called Art Camp at Home. We will be scouting out online art workshops that you may have missed and posting them here.

Teesha and Tracy Moore, renowned mixed-media husband and wife team, have pooled their resources from years and years of art workshops, fests and friends to come up with The Artstronauts Club!

 

Through the club they send out a continual stream of  ideas, instructions and inspiration. If you join by the month it costs $5.00 per month. Each additional increment after that has a substantial discount i.e. I joined for a year for $45.00. I am never able to get through every bit of information and I have more time than most.

Art Journaling Resources

At our October Art Camp for Women we did casual Art Journaling in the evenings. It wasn’t a course or a class so there was no prepared handout.

So – as promised – here are some resources to get started or to move forward in your Art Journaling.

For the basic formula of a page click here – you know – backgrounds, borders and a focal image.

For inspiration and very reasonably priced online classes:

Finally everyone was ready to go, we already had Yoga, a walk and a great breakfast and everyone arrived at Art Journaling class, dressed and ready to go!

We made some practice covers and then jumped right in to explore some new mixed-media toys, i.e. Derwent Inktense Blocks, Dylusions Ink Sprays and water brushes.

One side of the table started out using the color blocks and the other side started with the Dylusions Ink Sprays.

We started painting backgrounds for pages while our practice covers dried and then we put down the first layer of molding paste on the real thing!

Then we went to lunch leaving the covers to dry overnight.

In the afternoon the Campers went to Fabric Arts Disperse Dyes with Lorri Flint.
