Good Tuesday Morning everyone. Today's topic is something really FUN! These comprehensive how-to-scrapbook classes will be starting at The Studio sometime in November! Here's the link for ALL of the SDU information, but I've listed below some general info about the classes! http://scrapbookdesignuniversity.com/
The curriculum of SDU® starts at the very beginning! In these classes you will learn about the emotional value of scrapbooking along with the basics on how to plan and prepare for a scrapbook project. These classes present the foundation for beginners while exposing advanced students to view scrapbooking in a whole new light. Cost of the classes (all 4 included) to be determined, but I can assure you, it will be REASONABLE! You will need to have a "toolkit" for the classes, all of which can be purchased at The Studio, but we will go over all of that in Class #1, so relax! And enjoy a whole new learning experience in Scrapbooking!
Class #1 - Scrapbook Basics
In Scrapbook Basics, discover the inspiration that comes from creating scrapbooks. This class will orient all levels of papercrafters to the tools of the trade, practical organization and the elements of scrapbook design. Learn step-by-step how to create focus and unity through a variety of matting techniques, and leave class with a full understanding of the elemental components of scrapbooking.
Class #2 - Building Blocks of Design
A working knowledge of color theory and its relation to designing scrapbook pages is essential to the development of well structured layouts. Combining this understanding with the building blocks (photographs, journaling, titles, enhancements, color, line, letter and shape) and the principles of design structure will assist scrapbookers in the creation of strong layouts that complete a balanced and unified story.
Class #3 - The Power of the Pen
A picture is not always worth a thousand words. It is vital that every scrapbook designer develop an appreciation for the integration of the written word on a scrapbook page. The Power of the Pen will provide students with basic writing techniques and exercises to assist in the development of engaging titles and impact filled journal entries. Additionally, students will begin to understand the influence that hand lettering has on their reader, and how to incorporate their personal script into each design.
Class #4 - The Final Touch
Embellishing scrapbook pages is a true testament in the development of a papercrafter's design process. Page enhancements such as titles, stickers and punch art, allow the designer to create balance, rhythm, movement, contrast and depth with a layout. Design spectacular titles, learn techniques that give new vitality to your collection of stickers, develop knowledge of punch maintenance and the incorporation of punch art design in layout design.
