Introduction to Art Journaling taught by Molly Anthony
March 20, 2021 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm CDT
An art (or visual) journal is a place to collect ideas, record memories and thoughts, experiment with supplies and begin brainstorming for projects. It is a safe place to express ourselves and just have fun and play. These journals can begin as sketchbooks, notebooks or even a vintage book and then be filled with paint, collages, sketches and words. The possibilities for art journaling are endless and can be a bit overwhelming, but you really only need a few basic supplies to get started.
In this class, we’ll discuss how to choose your journal, ways to prepare your pages and go over options for supplies to use. We’ll also discuss themes or topics you can use for your books and how to make each book uniquely your own. There will be in class time to work and ask questions.
Suggested materials list will be sent to registrants.
