Workshop with Jack Turpin

For two days in the Fall of 2017, several members gathered to 
with Jack Turpin, a local and fabulous artist,
also my daughter's high school art teacher who encouraged her to become the artist she is today!

We spent two delightful, art filled days and lots of spare time in between the workshops with homework assignments. In fact, we had such a good time, we have asked Jack to come back for another day in April, 2018. 

There was a combination of lettering, although Jack doesn't give himself enough credit for the level of wonderful that is his italic lettering! and drawing and creating pages and writing.  It gave us a whole new meaning for journalling and may have changed the way some of us work in our journals in the future.

Some artists who have been influences on Jack's work include Nick Bantock, Brian and Wendy Froud, Anne Marie Harvey, Mike Svob, Robert Genn and Stephen Quiller. Google them!

So much fun! and we get to do it again in April!
