Nathalie Kalbach:
I am a self-taught mixed media artist. I was born in Germany and lived most of my adult life in Hamburg before moving to the United States in September 2013.  I now live in Jersey City, NJ.  My early love of paint was squelched by an art teacher who told me I had no talent. I worked as a paralegal for seventeen years and might have remained in the wrong profession had I not discovered mixed media painting in 2004. I regained confidence in my creativity and have spent the last decade exploring the possibilities of creating dimension and texture by layering different materials and paint media. I have worked in art journals and on canvases, incorporating collage and found objects. By 2011 I was able to give up working as a paralegal to become a full-time artist.  Since 2006 I have taught workshops in Europe, Canada, the U.S., Australia, Israel, Malaysia and online. Since Spring 2015 I am teaching Mixed Media Workshops at Pratt Institute for the School of Continuing and Professional Studies.    My artwork is licensed through StencilGirl Products, RubberMoon, Stampendous and ArtFoamies

I have a book coming out on June 8th, 2017:
"Artful Adventures in Mixed Media: Techniques Inspired by Observation and Experience" is available now for preorder, ISBN # 1440348334.  I am happy to sign copies in store for you or any of the students.
 "This book invites everyone to go on an Artful Adventure with me. I wrote it to share the  methods that make mixed media accessible to everybody, no matter your skill level. It's  about the process from inception to realization, how observations and experiences can  be turned into works of art. I give practical guidelines and oodles of examples of how I  find inspiration, how I gather and keep my ideas in sketchbooks, journals and photos,  and what materials go on the journey with me in an Art-on-the-Go kit. In each chapter there are techniques and step-by-step instructions for projects - stencils, layering, collage, textured painting, mono-printing, photo manipulation, and more, to ensure that the reader can go on their own Artful Adventures and create their own meaningful mixed media artwork!" - Nathalie
Sept. 9th 

10am - 6pm
w 1 hour lunch break

It starts the moment you sit down, an experience that is distinctly art journaling. 
A quick exhilaration, a sense of control, the art media's surprising responsiveness as if they were simply an extension of you. There is a word for this creative experience: Artvergnugen! 
Artvergnugen is what makes your journal a piece of art. Join me and play with different art media and supplies; discover fun layering techniques with stamps, stencils and acrylic paints. Let's talk about colors, composition, love-it or list-it to truly reveal your own style, and learn techniques, tips and tricks to take your art journaling further and turn it into Artvergnugen.
Sept. 1oth 

9am - 1pm
Walk With Me
Altered Book Workshop

There is something so beautiful about a book - the cover, the spine, the paper, the typography and it makes a beautiful companion on a journey. Walk with Me and give an old and maybe discarded book a new colorful life. Learn fun stenciling, stamping and book altering techniques. Learn how to draw when you can't draw and use the book as a wonderful substrate to create a beautiful keepsake. 
Use acrylic paints, and inks and fun tools and techniques and 
be ready for a fun ride.

Master Art Express
Art Journaling Class

Imagine you could take a trip through Europe and at each stop one of the many masters
of European art would materialize and invite you to explore their art to implement into your art journal.
Let's take this imaginary trip together and explore different European artists at each station, taking their artwork as an inspiration for mixed media techniques and colors.
We will discuss why some things work and why some things don't work and will solve the little "problems" that sometimes occur while creating art. Work with acrylic paints, acrylic inks, different tools and materials and gain a deeper knowledge about the
versatility and possibilities of your art materials. Let the travel itself be part of the journey and take the elements of art in to push your own art journaling style just a notch further.
