This is a one day workshop that is repeated Friday, Saturday & Sunday August 1, 2 & 3rd. Pick the day that works best in your schedule.

Spend a rampant day of creativity and experimentation, as we work both sides of the brain.
We will explore countless ways to add depth, meaning and layers to your personal pages, art journals and mixed-media collages.
Plus, we will spend the day creating a singular collective and collaborative work of art. You will gain insight into how to use images and words to prompt a continual stream of creative ideas, as well as use low-tech methods for adding richness and depth to every art surface.
A process-driven class for seekers and adventurers, with a new "twist" created especially for The Artist's Nook.
Lynne teaches you to push yourself as an artist, help take down the walls we build for ourselves and create...
