Art Journaling

Art Journal

Participants will create a journal, diary or smash book that has strong visual elements expressing artistic creativity and imagination. You may paint or draw, use pen and ink, photos, collage, add lettering, doodle, stickers, found objects, crayons and colored pencils…anything and everything. Bring a small sketchbook, an old journal, day planner, used book; other materials will be provided initially. Elements of each session—tools of the trade; building pages; creating your style; prompts—will work towards the creation of your own book. Express your memories, dreams, and thoughts. Explore the creative possibilities!
