Grow Your Art Practice is a year-long journey of sketchbook journaling offered in four-month segments for $140 each. Workshops include 2-1/2 hours of instruction plus a half-hour to share pages, answer questions, and present homework ideas between months.
Sessions will be recorded and made available to you for a limited time if you miss a live session. All students have access to video demonstrations, examples, material lists, and tips and tricks residing in the entire course’s online segment. The online classroom will be updated monthly with new information and includes a forum on which participants can upload photos of their pages, ask questions, give, and receive feedback.
Melissa Young’s career has been spent in family medicine. But she says:
“I’ve always used creative outlets to help keep me grounded.”
She has dabbled in ceramics, jewelry making, spinning & weaving, quilting, and acrylic and watercolor painting. Over the past few years, she enjoys sketchbook journaling for both every day and traveling. She finds it a useful tool for spring-boarding other larger artworks from ideas developed on her journals’ pages.
