Book Club is incredibly popular at A Work of Heart. We all love to buy the latest and greatest released art book but do we ever actually create the art that is featured in these books? That is what our Book Club is all about…not just enjoying the inspiration but actually creating using the inspiring art as a spring board. It is the next best thing to taking a class with the actual artist/author.
Our all time favorite book that we’ve covered in Book Club has been “Art Journal Freedom” by Dina Wakley. Due to popular demand, we are repeating the book again for a record breaking THIRD time! Thursday mornings from 10am-12pm starting March 5th.
Art Journal Color! Art Journal Composition! Art Journal Freedom!
Color is all around us and we often find ourselves drawn to particular combinations or arrangements. But how can you effectively and artistically capture those eye-catching compositions in your art journal?
It’s true, art journaling has no “rules” and is a safe place for free expression of your one-of-a-kind life. But knowledge is power and knowing the “rules” of color and composition gives you the freedom to use and break them willfully to create the effects you want. Dina shares these principles in a fun and approachable way with dozens upon dozens of unique journal pages to show you just some of the many possibilities.
Inside You Will Find:
- Lessons and tips about composition and color including dominance and repetition, symmetry, contrast and the power of black and white.
- 10 step-by-step technique demonstrations.
- Dozens of color and design tips and page challenges.
