Location 176 Race Street

Description In this class, Nathalie will show you how you can turn an old, sad book into something beautiful again! You will work with acrylic paints, acrylic inks, stamps, and stencils, and Nat will walk you through some fun sketching tricks. You don't have to be a master sketcher in order to create some beautiful images in your book. In the end, you will have a colourful creative keepsake filled with techniques that you can use for all kinds of Mixed Media and Art Journal projects.
