Art Journal Emporium - Looking forward to August August 07 2015, 1 Comment

The summer is just flying by, isn’t it? As fun as June and July were, I’m excited for August! Want to know why? Here’s a quick look at what’s going on in the Art Journal Emporium this month.

First of all The Daily Art Dose is up for August. This mini-workshop provides a one-word prompt for the day to inspire a quick artistic creation. Sketch, photograph, paint, sing, dance…whatever works for you. Be sure to post in the class room and if you share on social media, tag your creations with #thedailyartdose and #artjournalemporium.

Next, the new ATC swap is gearing up. Our theme this month is monochromatic cards. All cards must be mailed by the 15th, so there is still time to get in on the swap!

Finally, the new book club has begun for the month focusing on Pam Carriker’s book, Creating Art at the Speed of Life. So far (it just opened today) Tangie posted a picture to get us started.

Mindy joined in with her own example as well.

It’s a great month for art…join us in the emporium!
