 Hi everyone.....

On these posts, I'll share my views on products, workshops, resources and all things arty!

I hope you enjoy these 'ARTicles' ....I know that I'll have fun putting them together! :)


Today, I have a workshop review for you.

(I was so lucky to win this workshop in a competition drawn by Leslie herself. It in no way reflects on my review or opinion of the class)


  During this course, Leslie is going to hold your hand through the whole process of creating your journal, adding backgrounds to each spread and then developing fun and interesting blob creatures.


I had a relaxing, fun time creating and filling my journal and it is one of the few times that I have have gone from start to finish on a workshop project without getting distracted by a shiny, new art idea.


I don't know about you, but I often skip videos from workshop teachers that are purely thoughts and commentary about their classes. Leslie is not one to be skipped however.

She has a quirky way of relating to the camera and her honest and unrehearsed commentary are delightful and entertaining. (Whatever you do, don't miss the 'blob definitions' video!)


 Leslie has a reassuring and encouraging teaching style that I enjoy and she allows us to listen to her thought process as she works through each artwork.


From the enchanting stop motion video intros right through the entertaining naration and thorough instructions, you will enjoy every moment of this delightful workshop.

It truly is Blobtastic!
