~From "the Gift of Imperfection" by Brene Brown
Are you curious about Art Journaling?
Thought it was only for “Artists”? Or maybe you’ve heard of it before, but don’t know how to start.
Art Journaling goes beyond traditional diaries and journals to include not only words,
but images and color to express your thoughts, feelings and emotions.
Art Journaling is all about creative PLAY!
The process has no set outcomes and no rules, so there are no mistakes and no judgments.
It is a fun, creative means of self expression for everyone of all ages since it requires no artistic skills or talent!
This class provides an overview of some of the most common Art Journaling techniques and materials.
The process begins by laying down color and texture on our pages using paints, pens, crayons, gelatos, markers, pastels, stamps, stencils, doodles, collage and more! You’ll continue to layer words, images, colors and textures until you have created several personally unique, visually complex and meaningful pages for your Art Journal.
Along the way, we will discuss different styles of journaling; how to stay inspired;
and the benefits, challenges and approaches to regular Art Journaling.
You’ll go home with completed and in-progress journal pages as well as
blank mixed media and watercolor papers to create additional pages.
Also, there will be several types and styles of journals available for you to examine before you buy one for yourself.
Are you curious about the why, who, what, when, where and how of journaling?
Are you curious or confused about the many different styles and types of journaling?
Then join us for a discussion on starting a journaling practice. We'll answer questions such as "Why keep a journal?";
"Who is my journal for?"; "When and where will I journal?"; and of course "How will I journal?".
We will also talk about selecting a journal and tools to enhance your practice. NOTE: this is not an art class.
This is a group discussion meant to inform and inspire you to start a journaling practice!
