For this spring Julie Anne, founder and owner of Turtlewings got together and figured out what courses to offer this spring. As promised, we're working on an online course, but before putting that out we want to make sure we understand the platform we're working with to offer the best experience. Also, we've got a couple of one-time adult classes coming up that we need to find a good time for that I'll announce shortly.
BUT! I can tell you about these two things already. So mark your calendars, and sign up!
February 5th, 12th, 19th, 26th: Art Journalling with Anna
(Parents + children ages 8-14)
Back by popular demand this DIT (do it together) course for parents and children ages 8-14 is the first in our monthly serious of Saturday Afternoon’s with an Artist/Designer. Learn to view your world, experiences, and memories in a creative light whilst reconnecting with your inner artist through keeping an art journal and have fun collaborating and communicating in a different manner with your child! This art journal course is for parents and children and will take place on four consecutive Saturday-afternoons in February.
After completing this course you will have a clear idea of what keeping an art journal can bring to your family and creative life, be able to translate your experiences into journal pages, you will have a small personal library of prompts and inspirations to work on in your personal journal, have learned about materials, techniques, layouts, and colors!
This course will be run by Turtlewings designer, owner and creative director Julie Anne Verbeelen, and art journaller, illustrator, and blogger Anna Denise van der Reijden.
Spaces are limited so sign up today.
Fee: 168€ (for both child & parent)
Place: Turtlewings Atelier, 165 Rue Washington, 1050 Ixelles, Brussels

I love keeping an art journal, painting and sewing, but it's not quite a social hobby like tennis is. So, we decided it's time to change that and set up a monthly meeting for art nerds! Whether you need to update your website and need help, want to finish that novel you've been working on, or just want to swap ideas on what stamps to use in your art journal - this is the place for you!
* Think art journalling + drinks + sweets + creative talk + a welcoming space full of likeminded people!
* Swap art ideas, tips for supplies and techniques and find your art loving buddies right here in Brussels!
* Meet art journaller and illustrator Anna Denise and other fellow art geeks every 2nd Friday of the month at 19:30 at the Turtlewings Atelier!
[Sign up for our next and first meeting on Facebook]
With special thanks and lots of love to the amazing Julie Anne of Turtlewings, who has been so fantastic as to welcome me into her studio, life, and amazing circle of friends. I can't thank her enough, so the least I can do is put up a great big banner to her wonderful wonderful company (and she's setting up another amazing company, which I will blog about later)!!! If you're a parent or creative in or near Brussels, craving for more fun and creativity in your life - be sure to check out Turtlewings.
These drawings I made with fellow artist and son of Julie Anne, Natan (age 9). I love his style and I love working with him - there's a project here, I can tell!
