I'm Teaching at Whispering Woodlands September 26 & 27

I am looking forward to teaching at Whispering Woodlands again. Last Spring I had a wonderful time teaching my first Interactive Art Book Class. This Summer I took a class there. I am now looking forward to visiting the retreat's beautiful surroundings in an Autumn setting. There is still plenty of space available.

The class is based on my book "Interactive Art Workshop - Set Your Mixed Media in Motion". Pull tabs, spinning circles and textures aren't just for children's books anymore. I'll teach you how to bring sophisticated style, meaning and movement to your art by learning how to create books with interactive components. With demonstrations and exposure to a variety of samples, I will share my passion for the creative process while guiding you through color theory, working with a limited palette, composition and background techniques. Quotes and embellishments may be added as time permits. Expect to take home an original art book with several interactive features.
This is a fun surface to write and draw on.

The pattern on my dress changes.

My arm moves.

Come join the fun!

Very, very cool, Kim! I LOVE interactive elements! Super application and execution! No trips to Wisconsin for us this year :( Maybe next year...have a great time with both the class and with Raevn's Nest! Hugs.

Hi Kim, I have been thinking about you. You have been so quite lately. Looks like your energy has been going into prep time. It looks like a great class.

Hi Joy,
Actually I have been really busy organizing RAEvN's Nest Art Retreat. Plus big projects around the house.

Not enough creative time!

The Interactive Book class is pretty much under control. I say that now. Wait until the week before when I'm packing :)

Thank you,
