Our New Year's Resolution Posted on 19 Jan 12:33 , 0 comments

The month of January is full of excitement. There’s been the buzz of the holidays and the dreams of new years resolution to get us pumped for a brand new year. But what about when life takes over and things seem a little daunting? Well as Uncle Walt would say “If you can dream it, you can do it!” Our new year's resolution for 2019 is to help you achieve your dreams! And oh boy have we got some AMAZING things lined up for you. Here are 5 ways that the whole Art Journaling the Magic crew want to help you make your dreams come true.
Art Journaling the Magic Live Retreat
There are still a few spots left for our February retreat! We will be playing at Walt Disney World and exploring every magical nook and cranny through art. Come meet new friends, get away for an art-cation and see the world through the eyes of a little child once more.
Happy Place Subscription:
Hot dog, hot dog, hot diggety dog! While the Happy Place may not be the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse it sure is close. And what’s even better is it got a makeover for 2019! From Sketch Challenges to Disney inspired recipes to magical playlists- there is something for everyone! Each month we explore a phrase from a Disney movie or song and give it magical meaning in our lives. It’s a perfect way to set aside some magical minutes for yourself to play, do art and be online with friends.
A Walk In The Park: Walt Disney World
Whether you are an Art Journaling the Magic veteran or still aren’t sure what all the fuss is about- A Walk in the Park: Walt Disney World is perfect for you. We explore techniques used at the live retreats and use them to draw our favorite WDW attractions. We’ve already got tons of lessons up and there are more where that came from!
A Walk in the Park: Just for Kids
If you need something for your cute kiddos to do or if they want to art journal with you then we have got just the thing! A Walk in the Park: Just for Kids is for kids by kids! Not only do you get lessons from Tangie, Sammy, and Dave- you also get exclusive bonus videos from Tangie’s nieces.
Golden Books, Stickers, and more!
Journals, stickers, and prints oh my! As always our main shop has goodies to satisfy your artist cravings. Whether you need a new journal or some fun stickers designed by Tangie we have got the thing for you! We are always adding new covers for our signature Golden Book Journals by Dave. Don’t see what you like? We do custom too! Let us know if you have a special request and we will see what we can do!
So come play with us and make your dreams come true! And just remember

Art Journaling the Magic No. 8 Recap! Posted on 30 Nov 00:00 , 0 comments

It’s kind of fun to do the impossible!

Our first retreat of the 2018-2019 season was a blast and truly magical. Mindy Lacefield came to play as our guest teacher. We discovered something even more magical when we realized that it was our 5 year anniversary! What?!?! Tangie told us the story of how Art Journaling the Magic came to be and we wanted to share that with you.


We’ve come a long way (literally across the country!) since the first Art Journaling the Magic and we plan to go further still!

AJTM No. 8 was truly magical. We started off the week with our opening night party at Earl of Sandwich with TONS of goodies. Including custom AJTM ears from Tangie and a bag of surprises by Mindy. 


Over the next few days, we explored Animal Kingdom, Epcot, and the Magic Kingdom. We loved every moment of it.

As Tangie’s says “No two retreats are the same!” so we can’t wait to see how the next one goes. Make sure to check all of our retreat options so you can join in on the fun!

Retreat Season Fall 2018- Winter 2019 Posted on 14 Nov 11:31 , 0 comments

Last week was our first retreat of the season, and it was AMAZING! We met so many wonderful ladies (1 even came from Australia and 1 from England). There is nothing, nothing in this world quite like creating art together at the Disney parks. Many of us talked about how healing it is, you feel like a little girl again, giddy in a world where anything is possible. A place where there is magic if you know where to look. We'd love to have you join us for the adventure! Each of the remaining retreats has about 2 spots left! Won't you join us? We want to experience the magic with YOU!

If you loved the original "A Walk in the Park Online Sketchbook Adventure & Tour" you don't want to miss this spectacular add-on class! We will take a trip down "Memory Lane" to beloved Disneyland attractions long gone, learning the history of vintage rides while using NEW techniques not covered in other classes. 

For a limited time, if you purchase "Memory Lane" you will also get our new kids class FREE! 

[Just for Kids Art Journaling & Autograph Books] Sketchbook Class

Kids LOVE to do art! What better way to feed their love of Disney and being creative? They'll also learn how to turn their journals into custom made autograph books. This super kidtastic class is all inclusive and perfect for kids 03-103; it includes VERY BASIC watercolor instruction suitable for little hands. Advanced students will love it too, as an add-on to the original "A Walk in the Park Online Sketchbook Adventure & Tour".

Happy Birthday Alice Posted on 28 Jul 15:38 , 0 comments

The original Disney "Alice in Wonderland" movie was released on July 28, 1951, according to Disney, but there is also a release date of July 26.  So in honor of Alice's birthday, which ever date it is - I thought I would share some student sketches of Alice from the Walk in the Park online class.
