Online Art Classes

Since my discovery of the art journal I have been obsessed!  With some of my Christmas money, I purchased my very first Moleskine art journal.  It has a black leather cover and the pages in a Moleskine are ideal for art journaling.  The one I got had the purple cover slip and it is called a sketchbook.  They sell them at most art stores and also at Barnes and Noble.  The one I got was $17.95.  A little pricey, but soooo worth it.  The pages are smooth and thick and buttery colored.  I am in love!

One of the things that I really wanted for 2011, was to expand on what little art knowledge I have acquired thus far.  You tube has been an invaluable tool and I fell in love with the artwork of Suziblu.  She is a sweet, free-spirited young woman that makes art journaling videos.  She has a blog at  I went to her blog and found that she also does online art classes, most of which are self-paced downloadable videos.  I have really wanted to learn more about drawing faces and she had the perfect set of classes called Stylized Faces.  It is actually 3 classes in one and it was only $35.00!  I have to say that it was really worth it.  I am only through the first few lessons and I have already seen a huge improvement.

Side bar:  I am not affiliated with Suziblu...she doesn't even know who I am.  I am just a very satisfied customer who wants to share with others the great tools I have found. :)

Anyway, here's a picture of what I have done so far.  I have a set of Prismacolor Colored Pencils being shipped to me as we speak.  As soon as those come in, I will be able to move onto the coloring lessons and make my sweet faces come to life with color, color, color!
