About the event
Led by Paula Pugh
Suggested donation: $5 – $10
Come and get inspired to start an art journal or get new ideas for your own practice. Paula will introduce watercolor journaling for new people, and she will also teach a new technique for new people and for folks who have been to her previous classes. Paula has been recording her life in watercolor journals for over a decade – and her books are beautiful! In this class, Paula will share a selection of her journals to give you ideas and will talk about how to get started doing your own.
She'll share a variety of drawing techniques that will add a unique flare to your journaling. There are no rules with watercolor journaling. It's your book and you can do what you want, sometimes it's hard to know how and where to begin. And that's what this class is about: having fun, creating and not letting your inner critic get in your way. All levels of arts experience are welcome.
Supplies: You will need some 140 pound water color paper or a journal made with 140-pound paper and a micron 03 pen. You can purchase these items at Casey's Crafts in Bayview. Bring your own watercolors if you have them and brushes or we have some in the space that you can use. Paula recommends water filled brushes that you can purchase at Casey’s.
Paula Pugh has lived on Whidbey since 1972. She started her first travel journal in 2005. She soon branched out to experiment with many kinds of focuses (a trip, a theme, a class), but mostly she has settled into keeping a chronicle of what’s going on in her life. Whatever happens gets documented. Join Paula as we explore together and ‘see’ what we find.
How to find us: Create Space Langley is located at the South Whidbey Community Center (formerly the Langley Middle School). We are the Spenser Building, directly behind the Island Dance School. No need to sign up, just arrive at the door. Fully vaccinated people only, please.
