A group for people who love to create visual art-journals at any level- beginners or longtime journaling 'pros'! All are welcome, Men & Women(18 or older)!! No art experience necessary!

Art Journaling is a great catalyst for self-expression and reflection and a way to give shape and form to the words, symbols and images that are part of one’s thoughts, dreams, history, and experiences. Nurture yourself and free your creative spirit.  Guidance can be provided in getting started, emphasis will be on the creative process, loosening up and losing yourself in paper and art supplies. A safe and nurturing space will be created for all to explore and come out and play.

It will be up to members to decide what they want out of this group.  Some meetups may just be a way to work on your journals in the company of others, with no 'agenda'... other times we might offer a variety of 'prompts' for a journal page, or demonstrate some techniques, or even explore similar journaling mediums like altered books, self-made journals, book-binding, or fabric journaling.

WHile I don't plan to charge anything for membership at this point, I may institute a donation jar at some meetups that can help defray the cost of some "shared" supplies and organizer dues...
