My passion is teaching. I would love to teach a workshop for you. You DON'T have to have any special skills or a background in art to attend a Paper Praises workshop. All skill levels and abilities are welcome. My workshops are designed to encourage your inner creativity. No expectations, no judgement...just fun and fellowship!

Bible Journaling Workshop

Bible Journaling is about worshiping and spending time with Jesus through creativity - not about how great of an artist you are (or aren't). At each workshop I will teach the following:

  • Bible Journaling - what it is and what it isn't
  • What supplies to use
  • How to find inspiration and start a page
  • Watercolor and Acrylic painting techniques
  • Hand Lettering and Journaling techniques
  • Using rubbers stamps, stickers, paper and other embellishments in your Bible
  • How to paint the cover of your Bible

We will work directly in our Bibles or journals painting, drawing and writing. You will complete two or more pages during the workshop and leave with the tools and inspiration that you will need to begin your own Bible Journaling and Faith Art journey. All supplies are provided with the exception of a Journaling Bible.

Hand Lettering Workshop

Brush lettering, Faux Calligraphy and Hand Lettering are popular terms these days on Pinterest & Instagram. Would you love to learn how to it is done but don't know where to start? I will teach you the basics of hand lettering and get you started on your journey. At the workshop you will receive lettering practice sheets and I will talk you through how to form each letter. We will learn two lettering styles. We will practice using different types of pens including a brush pen, water brush and Sharpie. You will make one project to take home with you that is done in your own hand writing. All supplies are provided.

I live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

I teach at personal parties, Women's Ministry groups, MOPS, Youth Groups, ladies nights, retreats and for corporations or organizations. Workshops can take place on weekends or weeknight evenings. I can come to your home, business, church, social hall, coffee shop, school or other venue.

Collaborations are welcome. Do you have an idea for a party or a fun pop up at your business? Contact me! I would love to work with you.
