New Online Workshop: The Compass Rose

My newest online workshop offers just one ( okay maybe two) multilayered assignments. No more long drawn out classes you never finish- just one assignment. Contained within this one assignment is everything you need to know about visual journaling- how to combine journal writing with art making for self dialogue! 

How do you know which direction you are headed? How will you chart your course? Learn all about it in this amazing assignment! Workshop officially begins Nov. 16, but early registration with a discount of $25.00 begins now- you will also receive a free workbook download if you are one of the first 20 to register! See you there! You won't learn to work like me- you will learn to work like you. You will not be creating the following journal pages- you will make something uniquely you.

Morocco Mail Art

Posted by Juliana Coles on May 25, 2016 at 10:18am 0 Comments

I had a blast teaching my Morocco Mail Art workshop at in Encinitas Cal! You can join in the fun and sign up for my online workshop "Postal Alchemy" and go postal with my amazing mixed media techniques. I designed the workshop for fall and day of the dead theme, but insert your own theme, travel destination such as Morocco, or even holiday by collecting collage ephemera that represents that idea, and you have one workshop for all seasons! Registration is ongoing...

Choosing A Book

Posted by Juliana Coles on June 4, 2015 at 12:44pm 0 Comments

We are just now beginning our 2nd week of Altered States, but there is still plenty of time to register and work along with the group! You can still register at any time during the next year and work at your own pace! Thanks to this amazing group of artists, I was inspired to choose a book to alter I hadn't thought of before! Looking to jumpstart your creativity and find motivation from working in a group- then this is the class for you!
