Have you worked from online tutorials or taken an art e-course but walked away with no new skills?
What if you could take a class that encourages individual, personal expression AND teaches specific skills to grow as an artist?
Altered Books is 6 weeks of creative discovery, playtime, and technical exploration. It’s for artists and beginners, like you, ready to develop new skills, explore new ideas and start celebrating your unique artist voice.
My name is Carrie. I’m an artist and art educator. And there have been difficult times in my life where the pressure of a “big” or “real” artwork has been too much. Altered books have given me space and permission to explore. It allows me to have fun and relieve stress while also practicing assorted art techniques.
What ARE altered books?! Altered books is an art form where you artistically manipulate, or alter, the pages of a book or a magazine.
Your creativity is valuable and important. It is our shared mission to help spread the word AND be an example to others.
Build the skills and confidence to create your own unique art: Join The Soulbrush Sessions: Altered Books Mini.

Altered books are a great medium to explore artist techniques
Altered books have few rules and many, many choices for creative exploration. I recommend this course to new artists who don’t want to worry about whether they are doing something “right” or “wrong” but who also want concrete techniques to apply to their art, both in their altered books and other art.
This course is great for beginner artists who want to learn myriad art techniques. This course is also useful for seasoned artists who want to return to basics or learn about altered books. If you are a seasoned altered book artist this is not the course for you.
- Selecting the “Right” Book for your altered book
- Thinking about Themes
- Sourcing Imagery
- Preparing Your Surface
- Color Relationships
- Acrylic and Water Based painting techniques
- Image Transfers
- Qualities of a finished artwork
There are so many courses out there that show you only one style or creative approach. Altered Books helps you find your own inspiration and celebrate your own creative voice.
You don’t have to create alone either. You get to share your work via our Facebook Group The Soulbrush Sessions (Click to join) an online community where artists work together to discover, explore and improve.
