The Joy of Art Journaling    NEW!

Art journaling involves creating art in a blank journal, but it can be so much more. It is an exploration and reflection of our outer world and the impact it has on our inner world. Art journaling as meditation is a way to calm the mind as one puts pen and collage to paper. Both Leonardo da Vinci and Van Gogh kept art journals. In this course, you will learn what tools to use, what prompts and themes can be inspirations, and what techniques are useful for covering a page. We will use a number of mediums and techniques: stencil, collage embossment, stamps, pastels, watercolor, acrylics, pencils, pens, markers, and more. The journal you create may be the start of your creative journey or serve as a continuation of it. The instructor will supply many art supplies, or you may bring your own. This course is suitable for the experienced artist as well as the beginner. Please plan to bring a blank book (preferably not a spiral notebook) of any size to the first session.
