January Art Events

It’s going to be a great year!  I have many events on the horizon, including more shows, live art journaling, live painting, and monthly Art Journal workshops at Imagine Coffee in Corvallis. 

This January a selection of my original art journals are up at The Beanery on Circle in Corvallis (922 NW Circle Blvd Suite 130, next to Market Of Choice and Yogurt Extreme).

I am excited to have my work in this large, but cozy space. Drop in anytime in January for some tea, coffee and original art available for sale.

Have you ever wanted to try Art Journaling? Why not start now, at this time of renewal in the New Year.

It’s 2014, and the possibilities are endless, the script has yet to be written. Let’s take this opportunity to slow down and focus on our intentions for 2014. Similar to “vision boards” we will be art journaling as a way to create altar spaces.

Altars are places of veneration, places we create for honoring what we find important in our lives.  We make them sacred by defining the space.  I create 2-dimensional altars inside the pages of my journal where fill the space with thoughts and images I believe sacred, or wish to honor.

One of my favorite quotes is by Julia Cameron (author of The Artists Way)

“As you move toward a dream, the dream moves toward you.” 

What dream would you like to move closer to you this year?  It could be a goal, such as a skill you want to learn, it may be a person, or simply a word.

Don’t have a specific goal/intention in mind?

No problem! I’ll provide images and words as prompts to get you started.

In this two and a half hour workshop, we’ll play with paint, paper, images and gel pens. Layer by layer we’ll create “altar” spaces in our journals.

Please join me in the spacious conference room at Imagine Coffee in Corvallis this January and we’ll dig right in!

Just bring one unlined journal or sketchbook, a few printed images of your choice and I will bring the rest.

Sign up by emailing me at rachelurista@gmail.com -OR- drop by Imagine Coffee or call them at 541-286-4340.

Best wishes for a Creative New Year for you!
