Learn how to create an extraordinary sketchbook page using the simple building blocks of line, shape, and color.
On Day 1, you’ll design your page and paint the artichokes.
On Day 2, we’ll draw borders to frame the central image and add a title and text box. Each participant will be free to create his or her own version of the example sketch – make yours as simple or elaborate as you like.
You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to build complex borders when you take it one step at a time. And, because this class is so loaded with information, I’m including a full-color handbook for each participant that covers everything I’ll be teaching during the class. No need for notetaking – all you have to do is paint!
The class is live and interactive on ZOOM
Dates: May 13 & 14 from 10am till 1pm Pacific Time
Level: High beginners to Intermediate
Participants: Max 20
Price: $178 for 6 hours
Leslie Fehling is a watercolor artist, workshop instructor, and art blogger from western Pennsylvania. Her illustrated watercolor journals are filled with sketches that celebrate everyday life and chronicle her travel adventures.
She has taught sketchbook journaling and watercolor workshops in the US and abroad since 2014. Her unique approach to illustrated watercolor journaling and her enthusiastic teaching style have made her a sought-after instructor, and her workshops have empowered students of all skill levels to think more creatively and paint with greater confidence. She says, “I love seeing the joy and satisfaction my students experience when they begin to express themselves artistically and connect with the world on a deeper level through sketching. My greatest reward is when someone tells me, ‘You’ve made me look at the world differently.’”
Leslie is a leader in the modern sketching movement. For more than a decade, her Everyday Artist website has been a rich resource for painting tutorials, creative journaling ideas, and inspiring artwork.
Since 2016, Leslie has been an ambassador for Cheap Joe’s Art Stuff, a major art supply retailer, and has designed products for them under the “Everyday Artist” label. Her paintings are found in public and private collections across the US.
