The Artist's Way [3 Ways to get this Workshop FREE!]

The Artist's Way [3 Ways to get this Workshop FREE!]

by Tangie Baxter

Please do not use any coupons on this already amazing deal, thank you. 

This book is designed to help you to reignite your inner artist, recover your creativity and let the divine energy flow through you as you create your art. This book has been recognized as one of the top 100 best self-help books of all time. It is a journey of creative recovery and inspiration.

-----------------------------

“No matter what your age or your life path, whether making art is your career or your hobby or your dream, it is not too late or too egotistical or too selfish or too silly to work on your creativity.”
― Julia Cameron, The Artist's Way

I'm so thrilled to be hosting a creative cluster book club for Julia Cameron's book The Artist's Way. This book has helped me more than I can say in my creative journey, but it's been a few years and I had at least ten things happen right in a row that pointed me to take this journey again, I'd love for you to come with me! The Artist's Way is an invaluable guide to living the creative life, it is a 12-week immersive creativity course that takes about 2-3 hours a week. Creativity can come in many forms (painter, parent, writer, chef, ideation, sketching, spouse, singer, et al.).

This is a group discussion style workshop. I am not your teacher or your guru, I'm simply facilitating the discussion! Julia specifically asks us not to "teach" this book to anyone, but to be part of it with the group (which she lovingly calls "creative clusters". I'll be exploring, sharing and learning again right alongside you. The more you bring to the discussion the more you will get out of this, very literally, life-changing journey. Morning pages and artist dates are at the core of the program and help us connect to creativity in it's purest form as a divine source. 

This book is spiritual in nature and uses the word God, but as Julia explains to us you can call whatever that source is to you by whatever name feels right for you to call it.

You will need the book which can be found on Amazon or Kindle! (More details about the different versions can be found in the classroom, which you will get instant access to).

From Julia:

  • Stop telling  yourself, "It's too late."
  • Stop waiting until you make enough money to do something you'd really love.
  • Stop telling yourself "It's just my ego" whenever you yearn for a more creative life
  • Stop telling yourself that dreams don't matter, that they are only dreams and that you should be more sensible.
  • Stop fearing that your family and friends would think you crazy
  • Stop telling yourself that creativity is a luxury and that you should be grateful for what you've got. 

As you Learn to recognize, nurture and protect your inner artist, you will be able to move beyond pain and creative constriction. You will learn ways to recognize and resolve fear, remove emotional scar tissue and strengthen your confidence. Damaging old ideas about creativity will be explored and discarded. Working with this book, you will experience an intensive, guided encounter with your own creativity--your private villains, champions, wishes, fears, dreams, hopes, and triumphs. The experience will make you excited, depressed, angry, afraid, joyous, hopeful, and, ultimately, more FREE.

Mixed-Media Art Journaling for Scaredy Cats

Mixed-Media Art Journaling for Scaredy Cats

by Tangie Baxter

This class is for scaredy cats who want to learn tangible MIXED-MEDIA art journaling! 

This class began April 9th, 2018 and will be live for 1 month at which time it will become a self-study course that you will have lifetime access to.

Have you ever said?
I'm scared! Is it Messy?
What is mixed-media?
I'm doing it wrong!
I don't understand, what is it?
Help me, I want to play!
I don't know where to start!
I'm not that creative!
I'm not a "real" artist!

I've heard it all in the last 8 years, and I truly believe that I can help you get over all your fears (or at least learn to be best friends with them)!

Join me as we learn the very basics of mixed-media with tangible supplies

This class is going to be BASIC but not BARE! I'm going to spoil you beyond belief, and hopefully, when you graduate you'll feel empowered to make mixed-media art a process and jump in with two feet.
You'll receive:

  • Introduction to Mixed-Media (Vlog style video)
  • Supplies overview & discussion on why "more supplies" is not always better (You'll see my favorite supplies in action)
  • 3 "Warm up" videos to get you started
  • 3 Step-by-step video tutorials of tangible mixed-media art journal pages by Tangie
  • $30 Coupon to my Collage Sheet Shop to start your very own collage sheet collection!
  • 1- "Live" webinar where Tangie will demo in real time, answering your questions! It will be recorded (so if you can't make it don't worry)
  • Art journaling ideas prompts and challenges
  • Other activities to help you go from "Mixed-Media Scaredy Cat" to "Cool Cat" in no time!

What supplies will I need to participate in this class? More details will be available to you in the classroom right after purchase but the following is the very basics of what you will need:

  • A substrate (such as a journal or watercolor paper sheets)
  • A glue stick
  • Several pens/pencils of your choice
  • Watercolor (ANY will work, even Crayola)
  • Paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • Collage fodder (such as collage sheets, junk mail, magazines, etc.)

 

It's one thing to chose NOT to do mixed-media because you've tried it and it's not for you...
But it's NOT okay to be scared and never discover for yourself what it has to offer you (it's not as messy as you might think).
Come, discover, play and be brave, you may just find a part of yourself you never knew needed to be set free.

 

Want a few more details?

  • This class will be released over the span of a week, but you can work at your own pace (everything you need will be downloadable/watchable in the classroom)
  • This class takes place off-site in a private classroom, offering you an amazing state of the art classroom experience

Heart of Scriptures Workshop - Part 2

Heart of Scriptures Workshop - Part 2

by Lynne-Marie & Grace in Color

Welcome to the second Workshop in the Heart of Scripture Series where we will go on a journey of Faith and Creativity as we study the Psalms together. This workshop is a 4-week study on Thanksgiving and Confidence and we will focus on one chapter a week, discovering how these songs written so long ago apply to our lives today.

You will also have creative prompts to help you represent what you are learning visually.  Bible Journaling can mean many different things and in this workshop you will see examples of digital, traditional and hybrid styles of Bible Journaling.  If you have been comfortable with Bible Journaling for a long time, or are brand new to the idea, you will be encouraged and it'll be a lot of fun.  

You can find the first Workshop in this series, Praise and Petition, in the shop HERE but each Workshop can stand alone.  There is so such thing as being "behind".  

Also included in each Workshop is its own private forum where women share their art, their thoughts on the Scripture, prayer requests and provide community for each other.  There are music playlists, tutorials and the occasional extra bonus from Jen.  This is where all of the information for the Workshop will be posted!

Workshop Schedule: Note that you may join at any time! Most of the files are available for download at the time of purchase and all of the chats, tutorials, and lessons are recorded and available to access for as long as you own the workshop!

Tuesday 6.5.18: Private forum opens

Heart of Scriptures Workshop - Part 1

by Lynne-Marie & Grace in Color

Have you ever felt like life was just too busy to do one more thing? We've all been there. And for me, one of the things I tend to let slip is time with God. This, my friends never goes well for me and always leaves me lacking. One of the ways I personally keep the discipline of prayer and Bible Study from becoming boring or neglected is to infuse it with creativity. And whether you are a veteran Bible Journaler or have no idea what that is, I'd like to invite you to come with me on a journey where Truth meets Creativity. I am so excited to announce the first Bible Journaling & Bible Study Workshop at The Lilypad! And what better place to begin this adventure together than in the Psalms.

The Heart of Scripture Workshop is a 4-week study on Praise and Petition, two common themes found in the Psalms. You will study one chapter each week and learn to hear what God says to you through these instructive Psalms.

There are few things in this world I like to do more than play my watercolors! They are a unique medium that lend themselves to ~*PLAY & EXPLORATION*~ in this class we'll dive in together to learn the basics of watercolor, including mixing our own unique signature colors, but mostly we'll be explorers!

  • You like a "no rules" approach and would love for me to cheer you on every step of the way
  • You need help getting over any sort of "anxiety" about doing art or feeling like you are good enough to do this, I still struggle with this sometimes, but I also know we were born to be creative and I can help you move forward!

  • Videos &  overview of watercolors by EXPLORING & PLAYING including what I do with every new set of watercolors I get
  • 6 example projects with videos that you have lifetime access to (These will be brand new projects, exclusive to this class and never seen before--previews are for an idea of some of the play we will be doing)

Day of the Dead Craft Party

by Tangie Baxter

"The Day of the Dead (El Día de los Muertos or All Souls' Day) is a holiday celebrated in Mexico to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died.

Do you have an idea what Photoshop can do for you, but not sure how to apply it to your mixed-media projects or would you like to become a better digital artist? You’ve come to the right place! We will be learning composition and how to create digital collages using some of Photoshop’s most amazing (and often overlooked) features. We will thoroughly cover layers and how to use them to their fullest potential, groups, layer masks, clipping masks, cloning, duplicating documents, basic adjustment layers, using brushes, basic shadowing, basic typography, extracting, hand-tinting photos and so much! (See Table of Contents)
 

These tutorials are taught in CS5/Photoshop 5. If you are using any other version of PS or are a PSE user I know you will still learn a lot but please be advised that not all features will be available to you.

GUARANTEE! I am confident you will LOVE this class. If for some reason you are not fully satisfied after you have done ALL the lessons (finished workbook required), I will refund your purchase!

If you have ANY questions please do not hesitate to contact me: tangiebaxter@gmail.com

Art Journaling for Kids Online Workshop

Art Journaling for Kids Online Workshop

by Tangie Baxter

Imagination is more important than knowledge.

-A.Einstein

Dave, Sammy and I have been talking about this for a long time and decided that the time is finally right! We are ecstatic to announce that our entire family will be teaching this new online workshop for kids and the young at heart! We've been doing Summer camp for kids in our Studio for a few years now and Tangie owned her own preschool for 4 years!

This workshop will focus on the heart of what art journaling truly is and we hope to inspire a lifelong passion with art journaling in your child! 

A few of the ideas we'll explore: Imaginary creatures, Sweets & Treats, Sammy's dolls in watercolor & collage, Robots & Not so scary Monsters, Scribble Flowers, Collage in all its wide variety, basic watercolor techniques, doodling and tangles, plus so much more!

Anyone who says you can't see a thought simply doesn't know art.
-W. Reynolds

What you receive in this workshop:

  • Access to our secure offsite classroom for your family (only one workshop needs to be purchased per household)
  • 30+ Videos by Sammy, Dave and Tangie Baxter creating 30 Art Journal Projects (The focus of this workshop will focus on watercolor and collage, using supplies you can usually find at home).
  • 30 Downloadable, Printable PDF files that match the lessons with supplies used, sample of finished project and journal prompts to use while creating art journal pages from the videos. (Watching the videos will be required for the "how to" portion).
  • These videos will be released each Tuesday until they are all released
  • Several Bonus Collage Sheets to print and use (optional)
  • Lifetime Access for your child to work at  his/her own pace. 

The journal prompts will be thought provoking but appropriate for children (or the young at heart). This class is perfect for children ages 4-14 (But truly why not 4-104?!).

Please note that our samples don't have journaling on them yet because journaling will be done in our "quiet time" videos which are part of the classroom. Journaling is a very important part of this course.

What do you need? (links for reference, give you an idea of the type of materials needed, many items you may already have or can be picked up cheaper at your local store)

  • A place where children feel like they can create freely (perhaps on a tablecloth all their own)
  • Composition notebook (will wrinkle, but will be fine!) or watercolor journal. We are using these Fabriano journals in our video, the paper wrinkles but we love it! 
  • Crayola or Prang watercolor set
  • Paint brush(es)
  • Set of markers & Crayons
  • Glue sticks
  • Appropriate magazines to cut up (Don't have any? Ask neighbors or friends if they have some you can cut up, some thrift stores have magazines or you can use "junk mail" if you don't have access to any magazines).
  • OPTIONAL: Small set of Acrylic Paint or Gouache  (Some white paint would be very helpful, at the very least)

Before purchasing please note:

  • Images used in the previews are IDEAS of what the projects may look like. Actual projects may vary slightly.
  • By purchasing this product you agree that your child has permission to participate in this class.
  • Children are welcome to share their art in the classroom, but it is not required.
  • It is REQUIRED for the parent to have access to the classroom. If you would like to add access to the classroom for a child over the age of 13 you can email us once class starts. 
  • Supervision of children using craft supplies and scissors should be at your discretion.
  • Parent "help" with the actual projects & journaling should not be needed for ages 4+ and is in fact, highly discouraged.

Art is not a thing; it is a way.
-Elbert Hubbard

*Lifetime always refers to as long as Tangie is teaching online.
