Project Art Journal: Autumn Course 2014

Please note the start time is 6:30 pm and ending at 9:00 pm. The class fee is $85.

This is a seven week course meeting each Wednesday  OCT 29 - DEC 17   

This course will be dedicated to creating personal Art Journals through mixed media methods, techniques, and various materials.

Why Art Journal?

Art Journaling is an exploration of your creative self-expression.  It allows you an outlet to exercise your creative muscles while chronicling a story with words, symbols, and images.  The emphasis of this course is on the creative process itself.

 Materials

Journal size is important.  A book that is too small or too large can be overwhelming to work with.  I recommend the 7"x 10" size Mix-Media by Canson.  The paper is acid free and appropriate for acrylic, watercolor, pen, and pencil...all of which you will be using in this class. 

A detailed material list will be provided at registration or you may request it of me via email.  Below is a general BASIC MATERIAL list that you can start putting together. Students must be prepared to start working on their journal in the first class.

    The Art Journal is a work in progress and process. This is a continuing project. Feel free to start with a fresh book or use an existing book that you are working in. You will be given weekly prompts to inspire you as well as learning a new technique in mixed-media.
