My DVD from Interweave Press
Want to keep an art journal but don’t have time for another project in your already busy schedule? Pam Carriker, mixed-media artist and author of Art at the Speed of Life, shows you fast, innovative ways to use new media and tools made from your own work to create one-of-a-kind journal pages that showcase your signature style. By creating the background first and then using Pam’s easy “10-Minute Journal” method, you’ll never stare at a blank page again! After discussing her favorite supplies, Pam dives right into designing multiple backgrounds at once, using a large sheet of watercolor paper. Next, discover ways to take imagery from your previously created artwork and incorporate it into your current journal pages; tools and techniques covered include: image transfer, stencils, Thermofax® screen printing, and carved stamps. Then, move to the next portion of journaling: the art of creative writing, and learn Pam’s approach to the art of lettering. Finally, discover Pam’s strategy for adding a final layer to tie everything together and create a visually appealing impact. Pam’s methods—and her introduction to a variety of tools and new products—are sure to inspire you whether you’re a longtime art journaler or just wanting to get started art journaling.
Past Online Workshops Now Available as DVD’s
I’ve offered these classes in various ways and always through other online venues, but by now offering them as DVD’s will allow me to re-run workshops that people may have missed or for those who would like to have the videos available to refer back to as often as they like. I will only offer a class as a DVD after I’ve decided not to open it for online teaching anymore. Please remember that as I set my price point for each DVD many things are taken into consideration and while I want to keep things affordable I also need to respect those who have previously paid to take the workshop in it’s online format. Because there are no handouts, or instructor involvement as in a workshop, the price will reflect that. The video’s will occasionally refer to “links on the site” or “PDF downloads” etc, and these pertained to the online workshop as it was originally taught. There are no downloads that come with the DVD other than the insert inside the case and you can easily find the supplies used by simply googling the name, most often dickblick.com or jerrysartarama.com will carry them.
All DVD’s are professionally manufactured by a company that will drop ship them directly to you in the manner of your choice. They have been very good with a quick turn around. The DVD’s come in a Traditional DVD case with the insert as pictured below. The DVD’s themselves have graphics on them as well and each set has an insert in the case with additional information for the class.
Pursuing Portaits 6 video Lessons Available for 40.00 plus shipping of your choice
Journal your way to a self portrait that reflects your true self. During this 6 lesson course you will work in the comfort and safety of your own Art Journal. This will be an exploration of our own self and the face that we see in the mirror each morning as we dig deep to find what lies behind the face that we show to the world. Your face may not even look like you, but it will be representative of the inner you. I will show you the techniques I use in my mixed media portraits and guide you towards creating a face that is uniquely yours.
This workshop is intended to be a starting place for those wanting to pursue the art of drawing faces. I say ‘pursue’ because that’s exactly what I’ve found it to be. You can draw a face every day and not have them look alike. Portraits are a great way to watch your growth as an artist. Since the time I created this workshop my work has evolved a lot, but the basic techniques I teach here are still the same. This is a great starting place on a journey that never ends and I’m excited to be offering this retired workshop as a DVD.
