Learn the basics of art journaling in a space where there is no judgement, no criticism, just encouragement and exploration with a side order of fun. Each class starts off with a writing prompt, followed by a new background painting technique, then we add collage while discussing composition, and finishing up with creative lettering. Journalers are free to share after each step, but are welcome not to-this is a no rules, no mistakes, can't do it wrong art class. Who is this class for? This...
On a technical level, learners will learn a variety of paint techniques, how to add text to an art page, and tips on composition and collage.The main goal of this class though, is to provide learners with the skills to incorporate art journaling as a coping support in their mental health. This is a fun class designed to remind learners to hold onto joy.
I have been teaching art journaling for over a decade to all ages and art abilities. If you have a creative young person who doesn't like writing, I have alternatives they can use to participate. My youngest son has learning disabilites and doesn't write, and I have a variety of strategies (none that involve any type of coercion) but pulls on a journalers strengths, so they can still fully participate. If you have any concerns about your learners ability to participate, please reach out to discuss how we can work together.
