Art Journaling (Flex Class Version)

Art journaling creates a deep sense of self-awareness, empowers, inspires, clarifies thinking, and encourages. This course is a reworking (for the school year) of the week-long camp Art Journaling Courses I offer in the summer.

As needed by the student to complete entries. 
A journal, preferably a mixed media sketchbook
A water brush
Matte medium
White gel pen
Black artist pens
Magazines, paper clippings, ephemera
Acrylic paint in 2-3 complementary colors
Informal check-ins and shares via discussion threads and FlipGrid
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
While I cannot determine what students will journal about - the entry prompts are innocuous and do not naturally lend themselves to students sharing sensitive or inappropriate material.
