Art Journaling enhances creativity and is a wonderful source for ideas, inspiration, and problem solving. An art journal visually expresses feelings and experiences which can be more powerful than the written word. In this crash course you will fill journal pages with beautiful colors and textural backgrounds while exploring drawing, watercolor, collage, and mixed media techniques. Four sessions of creativity will include plein air sketching, still life study, and composition techniques. You will explore creativity-enhancing exercises, making patterns and motifs with stencils and unique mark-making tools.
All materials are included. Participants are encouraged to bring their own photos, magazine images, receipts, pressed leaves, etc. A small art journal will be provided and Karen will have materials and supplies on hand to fill your journals during the class. Old day planners and books can be made into art journals! If you have them, bring them to class.
All levels of experience are welcome.
