So by now we hope you've heard the good news -- Dyan Reaveley is returning to the Playground for a weekend of fun, stamp-happy and inky teaching. She's offering several different classes, which are described below with pictures that are representative of the content she'll be teaching. And all you need to bring to Dyan's classes is your creative self. Everything you need to create will be provided.
Saturday, October 18, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Anatomy of a Page ($70)
Curious (and maybe a bit intimidated) about the art journaling phenomena but not sure where to start? This class is for you! Dyan will break down the journal page into easy bite-size steps -- from background to stamping borders and journal lines, to adding collage elements and doodling. Then she'll have you do it again and again, adding a new twist or element. You'll soon be loving it and raring to go solo!
Saturday, October 18, 2 p.m. - 6 p.m.
Art Canvas ($80)
Join Dyan as she takes you through the step-by-step process of creating a 24 x 24" canvas that will involve painting, inking, collaging, stenciling, texturing, spraying, doodling and all things fun and fabulous. In the end, you'll have a substantial -- and unique -- piece of art for your wall that will amaze your friends and family! From this class, you'll know how to make more works of art of your very own (great holiday gifts perhaps?).
Sunday, October 19, 9:30 a.m. - 6 p.m.
Art Journal Extravaganza ($140 - includes Dylusions Creative Journal)
Whether you've fancied art journaling but didn't know what it entails, or you already art journal but want to learn even more, this all-day workshop with Dyan is for you! She'll guide you through creating pages in your Dylusions Creative Journal (included) and share her many art journaling tips and techniques. You'll learn where to start, how to plan a page from start to finish, where to find images and how to use them. But that's not all! You'll learn how to add interest to a page with flaps and tags. You'll doodle, silhouette stencil and add couture images. It's sure to be a great -- and oh so creative -- day that will really tap into your creativity.
