Summer Fun - Try Sketchbook Journaling!

Summer is a great time to indulge in doing something just for you, whether that means napping in a hammock in the backyard or spending an entire afternoon in a beach chair with your nose in a book. 

Perhaps you have a yearning to explore, to try something new and different. Maybe reading this blog has made you wonder if it might be time to (re)discover your inner artist. Have you thought about picking up a sketchbook and trying your hand at watercolors, but aren't really sure where or how to begin?

Well, if you're ready to take that first step, come and join me for a 4-week, fun-filled, no-pressure introduction to expressing yourself creatively through sketchbook journaling. Lessons on drawing, painting, composition, and mixed media techniques will help you to develop your own style. No art experience is necessary - only an open mind, inquiring spirit, and willingness to learn. Before long, you’ll be seeing your world through new eyes, as you record the everyday things of life in your sketchbook.

  1. I wish I could take your class! The paintings are delightfully colorful and reflect the fun scene of the beach!

  2. okay, it's only 654 miles to your class (12 hours) - I can do that! ;0) Actually, I'm really jealous for the people who live near you. Have a great time!

  3. How ironic that I just posted yesterday about how I want to start doing some art journaling but haven't drawn much in years so am finding it rather difficult to even get going at the moment. Too bad I'm way over here in Kuwait or I'd be there for your class! Best wishes for a great week. Tammy

  4. Well, I certainly love the way you sketch and paint. Perhaps I will sign up when my life slows down a little. Love these beach scenes. I do keep sketching journals but I feel they always need improvement.

  5. On I wish I could! Alas I live in Texas. Love your blog and work.

  6. Would love to take your class, love your blog check it often. Maybe someday you will come to California or do an online class.

  7. Why oh why don't I live in Waynesburgh, PA so I could have taken your class? Maybe you could offer an online class for sketching?????? Your artwork is amazing - thanks for sharing!

  8. This is great, Leslie! I bet you are loving every minute of this and your students are so lucky!! btw, LOVE, love, love that first shot of all the "loungers" on the beach!!!

  9. I some how missed this post. This is so exciting that you're teaching classes -- I only wish I lived closer. I'd love to take one of your classes!
