Art Journaling – the Creative Process
What are Art Journals? An art journal is a collection of words, ideas and images that you put together to document your ideas visually. (Imagine if a diary and a sketchbook had a very colorful, expressive baby).
This fun, mixed-media workshop is designed to allow you to be uninhibited and create freely in a relaxed environment. We will work with acrylics, watercolor, ink, collage, permanent markers, various papers, stencils and more as we walk through the process of layering images into a one-of-a-kind art journal (provided). The workshop is perfect for all levels of artists — we’ve had beginners and professionals in the same class, and everyone is sufficiently inspired to make some amazing mixed-media works of art. You will be given optional challenges to take home with you each day, to bring back to the next class.
Along the way, we will discuss how to overcome creative block, and tackle some of the obstacles to ongoing creativity. Students come away with much inspiration and motivation to keep creating after this class.
