What to expect

Art Toolkit workshops are live events that take place on Zoom. During the workshop, you will have a chance to ask the instructor questions. After the workshop, we’ll provide you with a recording to review on your own time.

We’ll be in touch a week before the workshop with instructions for connecting and additional information. Please remember to adjust for your time zone. Tickets are non-refundable, but we may be able to transfer your ticket to another student if there is a waitlist.

                About Chelsea

                Chelsea is a California native, plant lover, cat lady and travel addict. After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin with a BFA in Studio Art, Chelsea flew off to Italy for 2 years to fill sketchbooks and create while abroad.

                In 2012, she returned to California and started turning her sketches and paintings into prints and greeting cards. Sketchy Notions has since grown to a collection of over 100 card designs for various occasions, as well as a variety of colorful and cheerful paper goods and products.
