Event Details

Macabre meets the mini journal in this mixed media class – where you’ll learn to construct, alter, and illustrate your very own miniature spell book. Through step-by-step instruction, we will begin by binding and constructing our two-inch mini journals by hand. Once our journals are assembled, the class will then take you through a variety of individual techniques, prompts, and illustrations to apply within each 2-page spread. At the completion of the class you’ll have a fully altered and bewitching mini journal featuring eight different miniature art spreads…

Roxanne Coble is a mixed media artist, illustrator, and maker of things. Based in Los Angeles, she graduated from UCLA with a BA in Art History and a passion for the creative. Known for her art journals, her work fuses both mixed media and painted illustration. Inspired by the quirks of everyday life, completed pages embrace a balance of humor and dark emotional themes – all while exploring topical events that occur within her personal life. Currently, Roxanne is working as an artist and freelance art educator in Southern California.
