Have you wanted to start your own art journal but aren’t sure where to begin? Do you already journal but just need some fresh ideas and inspiration? Either way, this workshop is for you!
In this working session I’ll lead you through creating a new page in your art journal. While I share my examples and various techniques, you are free to create your page as it best suits you based on the monthly themes listed below.
Suitable for all levels. Studio materials supplied for use. Bring your art journal, or you may purchase a new journal at the start of class. (Purchase of new journal not included in class price)
February: Love Poems – We will be creating pages this month dedicated to love, all kinds of love – romantic, familial, even your love of chocolate, your adorable pet, of your last vacation spot. We’ll create found poems from books and magazines I have on hand or you can bring your own if you have a favorite poem or piece of prose you would like to use.
March: Seeds of Spring – This month we will be focused on the new growth of spring. We’ll start with some open journaling on what we want to grow in our lives and then add imagery of energy and growth to help bring it to fruition.
April: Wealth – This month the muse falls on tax day, so we’ll take the opportunity to stop thinking about money and think instead about all the other things that wealth can mean. Our pages will reveal how we feel wealthy in our lives and give us an opportunity to be thankful for them.
