I was in need of a creative project for 2021 and I have found one that looks perfect for me. I am very excited to say that I have signed up to 'Wanderlust 2021'.
"What is this?", I hear you ask. Well, it is a year long online course about art journaling using mixed media. It is made up of weekly lessons by art practitioners and each lesson will bring something different. I already follow several of the teachers on their blogs or on Youtube, so I know a little bit of what to expect.
As I have signed up early, I also have access to bonus videos and handouts and downloads, which I have been working my way through. The cost for the year is $99, until 9th September, which worked out to £72.00 and I think this is very good value. After 9th September, the price goes up to $175.00, but people can still join until 31st December 2020. I am hoping that the course will help me to develop my own style and 'voice' as well as show me lots of mixed media ideas and techniques.
I will also be given bonus videos on 'Braving the Blank Page' which will appear on 14th September, again, because I signed up in good time. The other good thing is that I have pretty much all the supplies suggested and I have just bought a new and rather nice art journal to work in. I also have a journal for notes, sketches and other bits and pieces - more of a working document.
Here is a link to the website, in case you are interested/curious - Wanderlust 2021. I have enjoyed the videos so far and am working on a mixed media piece with a star theme which I will share when it is finished.
I am hoping that 2021 will be my most creative year yet and I am looking forward to getting started in January.
