Intuitive scripting at first appears simple and direct, yet it takes connecting to a silent voice that rarely speaks, within to foster its natural and instinctive occurrence.

Join us in a two-part workshop and explore the specific techniques and tools needed to freely create beautiful brushstrokes and to hear what your heart may be saying to your hand.

You will also receive a set of downloadable Printables to use during this workshop.

Many of my followers find it difficult to produce a consistent and beautiful result with intuitive scripting. After many requests and much thought I’ve developed an introductory class devoted specifically to this practice. In this workshop you will learn to access the place within from which this intuitive language flows. I will share about the importance of exploring and going on a journey of discovery. You will be encouraged to quietly dialogue with your inner muse and learn new ways as the spontaneous movement of your hand connects with the lucid, fluid right brain, the creative mind.


Intuitive Scripting, or “soul writing”, not only adds an inimitable personal touch to your work, it instantly creates an ever-available portal to your creative voice. Whether you are using it as a mindful exercise of inner attention or applying it as an artistic practice, this graceful dance of brush and ink can become a rewarding and soothing addition to your creative work.



Many of us, especially women, were taught to be careful about “leaving a mark.” Where we long to create boldly, we remain tentative and careful, often stifling the emerging seedlings of our emerging style. The very act of confident mark-making serves as a vital breakthrough—it helps us access that infinite pool of individual creativity.

We will meet together in the space of an online workshop and bring forth a new visual vocabulary that will create new dialogues in your work. I’ll ask you to organize a quiet, visually inspiring work space—maybe a small plant, a candle, your favorite rock, feather and crystal. Let’s set the atmosphere to encourage a new relationship with our art and ourselves.

Intuitive scripting is our soul’s language, it comes from a deep place and is oddly connected to so many things that we love. It is an abstraction of all the things that fill our world and bring us joy.

“Let’s Talk Art: Encaustics”

Hi everyone! I am premiering a new series called “Let’s Talk Art” in the Clarity Thru Color Facebook Group. Join me twice a month for a discussion about all things art and occasional interviews. Topics will be based on your questions and suggestions for discussion. The first show will be tomorrow and will feature Seth Apter. As a member of Seth’s Creative Team, this will be my first project for the month of October. I will be working with his baked textures and it will be a great opportunity to learn directly from Seth about their characteristics. Hope to see you there!

Traditional Concertina Part 2

Gelli Printing and Collaging

Hey everyone!

I hope you have gotten a great start on your concertina project. In this video we covered some exciting additions to the book. I found this great piece of corduroy fabric that I thought would work great for the cover and you will get to see how I used my stencils that will be available this October to print some of my scripting onto it. We also dive into a collection of vintage Asian papers and work on using them to add decoration to the book. We finish with a gelli printing glazing with beautiful gold colors. Enjoy!

Happy Creating!

Traditional Concertina Project

A New Project Begins

Hey all! Fall is upon us and it is a great time to spend cozy evenings creating art. I’d like to share with you a recent project of mine called the Traditional Concertina using large format paper. This style is great for creating a travel log. I like making simplistic travel books on my travels and I try to make one for reach one of my journeys. This style is also great if you have a collection of gelli prints that go together in a theme and you are looking for a book format that does not require as many pages as a full journal. For my Concertina I will be working with September’s Design Team Printables. In this first video we work on creating the structural foundation of the project. As you will see, the completed project will make a great gift or a decoration for somewhere like a coffee table. I used a large sheet of 23 by 18 drawing paper that I have used on my desk for coffee staining and spray painting so it is also a great way to re-use past art materials. I hope you enjoy the video and stay tuned for the next part where we will work on adding ink blots to our artwork.

Happy Creating!

Lebenzon Brushes, 10K Giveaway, and Intuitive Scripting Workshop Seats Raffle

Hi all! I had the opportunity to interview Tracy of Lebenzon brushes this past Saturday morning. Especially when it comes to intuitive scripting in the kana style, I need a brush that feels like an ice skater on ice; Tracy’s brushes have fostered the best experience I could imagine when it comes to my art. Throughout the interview we learned a lot about brushes such as brush structure and how important it is in preventing bristles from falling into your art. I think we all benefitted from the conversation on brush cleaning as well. Tracy taught us that most cleansers are meant to strip away protein and fat, hence why it is important to use a gentle cleaner since brush hairs are made of protein. I highly recommend using shampoo to clean your brushes. As for older brushes, Tracy suggested allowing them to soak overnight in shampoo. Oh, and we all learned how to correctly pronounced “Wangi” 🙂 Definitely checkout the youtube video if you are interested in learning more details. Also, if you would like to purchase a hand-made brush by Trace, he is running a 20% off special until the end of September for my followers and subscribers. The promo code is: Robyn20 and you can purchase the brushes at: https://lebenzon-paintbrushes.com/

I would also like to share with you some exciting news. Many of you have reached out about how close my Instagram is to reaching 10K and have inspired me to create a 10K Giveaway Event. The rules are fairly simply, all you need to do is make sure you are subscribed to my YouTube channel and are a follower on Instagram. Please make a comment on the 10K Giveaway video and Instagram post for a chance to win gift baskets from Gelli Arts and Arteza, a medium sized siberian elk brush from Tracy, Arteza brushes, and one of two seats for my Intuitive Scripting Workshop. 

Last but not least, some of you reached out about the artist smock I was wearing in the interview video. If you are interested in the smock or perhaps another that features one of my designs, please click the following link: Robyn Mcclendon Designs Artist Smocks

Take Care and Happy Creating!!

The Altered Book Project Part 27: Altered Book Project Finish!

Inside Cover Collaging

We have reached the final post for our altered book project. Using September’s printables we will work on the inside covers of our books. The two printables I chose for this part of the project are one with a swirl of deep reds and yellows, and a golden modern page with black marks. We will use Arteza’s Aztec Gold for the binding creases to connect the two printable patterns together. In this video, we will also work on some problem solving with the first and last pages of books so that we create an overall harmony with our collaged pages. We will use Arteza’s Aztec Gold for the binding creases to connect the two printable patterns together.

The Altered Book Project Part 26: Covering the Outside of the Book

Creating a Cover for Your Altered Book

Hey all! At this point we have  finished with the inside of our books, at least for the most part. I’m sure I will continue to tweak some of the pages 🙂 However, now we move on to covering the outside… Note, that this process can be a bit challenging, but just take your time, don’t try to complete in one sitting, if you begin to get a little frustrated, just come back later and you will do beautifully :)….Enjoy!
