WATERCOLOR ART JOURNAL, Creating a Visual Diary

With a few watercolor art supplies and your journal, you will be ready to capture memories of your travels in a colorful and unique way.  Create a visual diary of watercolor painting, journaling, and mixed media as you slow down, observe, and savor your time in beautiful coastal Maine.  This exciting class will motivate artists of all skill levels to record their journeys in an imaginative way using watercolor and mixed media.  Students will explore ways to make their travel journal interesting and reflective of their experiences as we work our way from the studio to painting plein air the quaint coastal scenes of Maine.  It is fun to create a personal work of art more wonderful than any photo album.

Jacqueline Newbold is known for her experimentation with combining watercolors with mixed media.   Her watercolor journals are filled with charming paintings using water-soluble pens, pen-and-ink, painted postcards, and unique backgrounds.  She is a member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon, the Northwest Watercolor Society and the High Desert Art League.  She teaches watercolor workshops in her Oregon studio, the CREATE retreats in Chicago and Seattle, Art Unraveled in Phoenix and the Art & Soul Retreats in Portland, Oregon as well as conducts watercolor workshops in France and in Italy.  She enjoys sharing her watercolor techniques with a self-published book, her Interweave DVD, Art Journals On-The-Go: How to pack, paint and more; and through the many articles she has written for Cloth-Paper-Scissors, Studios, Pages, and Somerset Studio Art Journaling magazines.
