PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS A THREE-PART CLASS that will be taught on Saturday, October 26, 2019, from 11:00am to 2:00pm; Saturday, November 2, 2019, from 11:00am to 2:00pm; and Saturday, November 9, 2019, from 11:00am to 2:00pm.

Starting with a pre-loved book, join us for the creation of one of a kind visual diary - an expansive, creative, personal art piece. More than just a re-purposed book project, students will dive deeply into mixed media and explore creative uses of color, collage, personally created patterns, photos, mini-paintings, ink, lettering, tangles, and much more. It’s personal story, creative journey and unique artwork, all in one! All levels are welcome whether you’re a beginner, an experienced artist, or simply a journal keeper! This class is for everyone age 16 and over. The cost of this three-part class is $85.00 per person. All supplies will be provided. Pre-registration is required and online registration is preferred. Click here to register online. Having trouble registering for class online? Please call us at (805) 525-5554. 

This class is offered in collaboration with Blanchard Community Library, and books for repurposing have been generously donated by the Friends of the Library. FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY MEMBERS GET 10% OFF REGISTRATION. Just use discount code “LIBRARY” during checkout.
