“Artvergnugen” — Art Journaling with Nathalie Kalbach

December 3, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 5:30 pm


Instructor: Nathalie Kalbach

Artvergnugen – Art Journaling

It starts the moment you sit down, an experience that is distinctly art journaling. A quick exhilaration, a sense of control, the art media’s surprising responsiveness as if they were simply an extension of you.

There is a word for this creative experience: Artvergnugen!

Artvergnugen is what makes your journal a piece of art. Join Nathalie and play with different art media and supplies; discover fun layering techniques with stamps, stencils and acrylic paints. Let’s talk about colors, composition, love-it or list-it to truly reveal your own style, and learn techniques, tips and tricks to take your art journaling further and turn it into Artvergnugen.


Runaway is pleased to bring Nathalie Kalbach, author of Artful Adventures in Mixed Media – Art and Techniques Inspired by Observation & Experience. Although now living in New Jersey, Nathalie is a native of Germany who has taught classes in mixed media art applications around the world. She has more than a decade of teaching experience and has designed products for StencilGirl®, Stampendous®, RubberMoon® and Art Foamies®. We are very happy to bring her to Runaway to teach three of her mixed media classes in December.
