Tuesday, Thursday, February 16 & 18
Perhaps you’re curious about what art journaling is or maybe you already keep a journal and would like to expand it to include art. This class will help you get started by exploring the endless possibilities of art journaling. We’ll also create a small journal using watercolor paper.
In the first session, we’ll look at several examples of different types of journals, both purchased and handmade. We’ll discuss why people find art journaling fulfilling and the various media used by journalers. Then we will start to construct our home crafted journals.
In the second session, we’ll complete our journals. There will be time for questions and sharing.
