In this one-time course, artists will be introduced to the practice of upcycling an old, forgotten book into their own work of art!

Class experience

My goal is to inspire students to tap into their imagination and spark their desire for self-expression by introducing them to an art journal (aka altered book/visual journal) and try different mixed-media techniques. I hope they plan to continue creating this journal long after the class has ended.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from UCLA and spent my first 10 years out of college working with professional designers and photographers in the publishing world. I was exposed to an eclectic variety of art media and styles. Later, as a volunteer art teacher, I was introduced to altered journals and fell in love with combining journaling and art together, so I made my own!

I have enjoyed art journaling for many years and have worked on my own journal as a great way to create a distinctive piece of art that also included personal reflections, notations, and adornments.
Homework Offered
No specific homework is assigned, but students are encouraged to finish pages we start in class and explore other options and media.
Assessments Offered
Throughout the class, I will have artists share their pages with me to see their progress and ask questions as they arise to ensure they are comfortable with the media, the process, and their progress. We will engage in respectful and relaxed conversation as we work to discuss the goals for their book and brainstorm ideas to get them there.
Grades Offered
An old hardbound book with a removable paper jacket: 6 x 9 or larger, preferably with a sewn spine (not glued, but it will work if that is all you have), matte-finish pages (anything nonglossy), and a nonglossy front cover

Pencil
Bar eraser 
Ruler
Colored pencils
Markers
Black Sharpie markers (Fine and Ultra Fine)
Oil pastels
Chalk pastels 
Watercolors, acrylics, and brushes
Rubber cement
Magazines, photos, scrapbook paper 
Glue and adornments, 3D memorabilia

** it is okay if you do not have all of these things but it gives other options, some of which I will be showing in class as time allows.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
