[This is one of a series of posts on resources for digital art journalers and collage artists.]
Digital art journaling has come into its own; the internet is busy with offerings to keep us inspired.
2013 is the fourth year that Tangie Baxter has offered the Art Journal Caravan, different each year and still worth many times the price, $49.95 for the starter kit and a year of tutorials, challenges, prompts, encouragement, support, and community. And freebies.
Tangie releases regular (monthly, this year) Caravan kits, which are available to members at a deep discount.
I joined the Caravan in March 2011, then purchased the "2010 Caravan in Review PDF" and did that year consecutively with 2012, and have begun 2013. This year Tangie is out-doing herself, with inspirations and treats and new challenges.
This year-long workshop is designed for both digital and hybrid art journalers, so whichever you are you will find it useful. It may even inspire you to move into the other media on occassion. You can participate as much or as little as you like. There are forums and a gallery to share work, which you may or may not choose to do.
One of the things I especially appreciate about The Caravan is that its home, Scrapbookgraphics, is an open gallery. This means that pages can be posted that were made with images from many different sources; we are not limited to using only Tangie's work, wonderful though it is.
If you are going to choose only one workshop to do this year, this is the one.
There are other good opportunities as well, which I will address in another post.This is my photoset so far for Art Journal Caravan 2013:
