Create Arts Online is thrilled to have Katherine England and her magical online course “Book Building and Daily Art Practices.” Many of us have been told since our childhood that in order to be good at anything, it will take practice. That adage still holds true, and especially when we talk about a daily art practice.

In this online course, Katherine shares what she has learned about building your very own art book, and then introduces many exercises and practices that can help to make you a better artist.

Katherine starts with how to build the book, and gives options for taking an original cover of an old book, or creating one by using some birch wood panels. Katherine leaves no stone un-turned as she shares many tricks and techniques for how to build these one-of-a-kind high quality books. Katherine has been building art books for over twenty years and she discusses the best paper choice for the pages and demonstrates how to tear the pages for a great effect. Then she will show her step-by-step process for creating a Coptic stitch. If you follow Katherine’s instructions properly, these books will last a lifetime.

Once your book is built, you will fill it. This book will provide you with the opportunity to find a daily practice of doing something creative. This is your non-judgment zone. Katherine shares her experiences from teaching this workshop for many years, combined with what she has learned from her own daily practice. She explains in great detail how the brain works and how you can actually alter your brain in a positive way through her exercises and lessons. This is your safe place to add everything from doodles, collages, watercolors, and anything else you can dream of and create. She will teach some fun techniques including how to create a transfer and other silly stuff. Katherine has witnessed countless students become more creative confident artists from the content she shares.

This online course is an incredible tool for all artists in any medium. Once you create your first art book and start filling it up, you won’t be able to stop.

Katherine offers a kit with all of the materials for creating the books. This is available for purchase in one place, and a link for purchase can be found on the materials PDF.
