To make altered art, the most important thing that I use is my imagination. For example, when I look inside the pages of a fashion catalogue, I often see whole new worlds and stories that I can construct by doodling directly onto the pages with my favorite markers.

When I see photographs from my life that I get printed onto glossy photo paper, I see fun and frequently funny scenes that I can create by not only doodling onto the photos but manipulating and altering how they look with things like nail polish remover, bleach, and more. I also like to adhere them onto paper and doodle beyond the photos. Photos from the past can also work well.

In this workshop, I will provide prompts to help loosen you up and to help you see beyond what is on a catalogue page or a photograph so that you can artfully alter them into wild and wickedly fun altered art. I will also share methods of manipulating and altering actual photos that are printed on glossy photo paper. Finally I will share with you how to use the altered pieces to integrate into art journals, and other unique finished mixed-media works of art.

  • Several of your favorite fashion catalogues or magazines. My favorites are by anthropologie, Nordstrom, National Geographic, and athleta.
  • Several of your favorite photos that are printed out onto glossy photo paper. You can get your photos printed from traditional photo printing places like drug stores as well as APPS like Kanvess. You can also print them yourself with systems like the Canon Selphy, or with glossy photo paper that you feed into your computer that is set at the correct printing mode.
  • Posca markers (These are my very favorite markers to use in altered art.)
  • Neon Gel Highlighters
  • Fine-grit sandpaper, fingernail polish remover, other markers and pens and pencils and crayons and inks that you have and use that you'd like to try out. Also any other adhesives and journaling supplies that you have and like to use. If you are new to journaling and you don't have very many other supplies, no worries, you can try out the supplies that I will have on hand.
  • Any art journal or journals that you have been working on that can be used to incorporate some of your altered art into. If you don't have an art journal you've been working on, you are welcome to bring a new one that you can start during class.
  • OPTIONAL: Below are items that I also use to make altered art. If you have any of these items already, feel free to bring them. If you don't, do not feel pressure to go buy everything. However, if you feel like picking one or two things from this list, feel free to do so. You can also borrow my things from this list during class.


  • Due to limited class size, the spot for this class is transferable but payment is non-refundable. Please read about this policy in our Studio Policies.
