Class Experience

The goal of this class is to provide teens with the skills to incorporate art journaling as a coping support in their mental health

What teens will get out of it:
a safe way of expressing themselves
find out that it's okay to have fun and make art
a new tool for their mental health toolbox
in this class we are going to focus on expressing and creating
this is a no-mistake, can't do it wrong, forgive ourselves and love what we do class

Hi, I'm Anna and I have seen the power of art journaling both in my own life and the lives of many others.I have been teaching art journaling on line since April 2020, but taught it in person for many years. I understand the challenges of supporting an anxious teen, I had two of them myself. Also, I have trained as an artist-educator with the Royal Conservatory; I was a parent educator, supporting parents with children's mental health issues; and have worked as a peer-support worker. Art journaling, a safe and private place to express yourself, is a wonderful tool for anxiety and can be there for you your whole life.

In a nutshell, you need something to journal on, something to journal with, something with colour, images, and glue. But here is the official supply list Supply list: Journal-I recommend 140 lbs watercolour paper-can be any size-the journals I use are 7.5” X 7.5” but use whatever is your preference-Canson makes pads of the 140 lbs paper in a variety of sizes that work well. Acrylic paint: 4oz/120 ML tube (or around that) black, white and primary colours (red, yellow, blue) Markers-black white and assorted colours Matte medium-I recommend Golden brand-8 oz jar or smaller or glue/glue stick is fine Images-National Geographic is my current favourite, but any magazine you like is fine Paint brushes-assorted sizes-dollar store is fine Scissors Paper paraphernalia: could be anything...ticket stubs, ripped pages from a book, library card pocket etc All and any of your favourite art supply that you have-right now I'm a bit obsessed with some paint sticks I got as a gift. If you have a favourite, or have been wanting to experiment, now's the time. Paper towel-for wiping brushes Cup of water for rinsing brushes You can stop here the rest of the items listed below are ‘gravy’. Extras: Primary colours are red, yellow and blue. Secondary colours are green, orange, and purple. So if you want to get any extras of markers or paints, add some secondary colours. My favourite paint colour is Golden acrylic Quinacridone/Nickel Azo Gold. Plastic knife and/or fork-for making cool textures in the paint Old plastic card-library card, credit card, drivers license etc. for spreading paint Watercolour-paint, crayons, pencils, markers Images from your junk mail, that you print yourself, old pictures and postcards stamps and ink pads Stencils charcoal pencil Markers I love:the first 4 are best to have the rest are icing... Sharpie-in fine and extra fine point or Bic Mark It I like them both equally Uni Posca for white in more than one nib size, because I love white markers Pilot G-Tec C4 especially in brown Tombo Monotwin-I got one of these for Christmas, and love it Copic Markers come in a vast array of colours-I don’t have too many of these but if you love markers, they are worth it, they are used by manga artists so there is a wide variety of tones Gelly Roll in any colour are fun I do love a brush tip marker too, but they can be hard to find in true brush tip Tombo-these are watercolour markers-I don’t love them, but they are very popular
Your journal is your witness
1 hour 15 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class is a place where feelings get felt, expressed, and witnessed. Art journaling has a way of opening us up to often hidden things. It makes us vulnerable and calls upon our courage. These things we are free to share with the group, (or not) so if your learner is ready to be supportive and be supported-please join us. To build trust and community within the group, this is a video on, mic on (unless there is noisy backgrounds) class
