Dear Art Toolkit,

I’m back in the Pacific Northwest after a fabulous adventure in Texas. It was multimodal, from ferries to cars, planes, vans, canoes, and some terrific hiking! The eclipse was breathtaking; I’m in awe of our beautiful universe. I appreciate our incredible Art Toolkit team for keeping things running smoothly while our family traveled!

Read on to learn more about my experience sketching the eclipse, and about our next live demo where we’ll find joy in the little things with artist Jane Maday.

Sketching the Solar Eclipse

I brought an assortment of my favorite sketching supplies to Texas, including my trusty Folio Palette, to capture moments from the trip and, most importantly, of the eclipse itself! Check out the Art Toolkit Blog for a log of observations!

Journaling Moments of Joy with Jane

Join us online on Wednesday, April 17th at noon Pacific for our next live demo: Journaling Moments of Joy with Jane Maday!

In this demo, Jane will share how she finds “glimmers” or little moments of joy every day. Her style, optimism, and playful approach to art are so inspiring! She will discuss finding inspiration, laying out pages, and her drawing techniques so that you can explore a new way of journaling.

Special announcement: During the live demo, attendees will have a chance to participate in a giveaway for copy of Jane’s book, How to Journal Like an Artist, which we added to our Bookshop last year!
