Create Your Own Book: 1 Session Workshop
Book by Emily Weil
About the instructor: Emily Weil is a painter who works in watercolor and acrylic and needs to paint as much as she needs to breathe. Her work has been shown at Slate Gallery in Oakland and Jco’s Place Gallery in Los Gatos, and she has exhibited at East Bay Open Studios since 2008, when her painting was featured on the directory cover. She obtained a BFA in graphic design from the California College of Arts and Crafts and operates a freelance design business, Red Eye Design, from her home in Alameda where she lives on a floating home. Emily loves to roam around and paint outside at Alameda point, Mare Island, Treasure Island, and various sites in San Diego, trying to capture the feeling of a particular place. She has a daily painting practice and tries to sketch with watercolor or spend time in her studio in Oakland every day.

Description: In this workshop Emily will give step-by-step instructions on creating your own art book. Using a small, accordion-style sketchbook, you will learn how to write your own story and use pen and ink and watercolor or acrylic to illustrate and highlight your writing. Emily previously created a small memoir of her childhood and art adventures (see photos) and for this class she is creating another book: “Dating Life of Grandmas," but choose a topic that appeals — a trip you took, your goals in life or in art, moments in nature, your life story. Please note that it might be a good idea to think ahead on topics and bring some notes to class on your subject matter.
