This friendly group is for any kind souls interested in creating visual art journals. All skill levels are welcome--you do not have to be an artist or have any former art training to join. I started this group so that we can come together to learn how to use a variety of art materials (tinker...), exchange ideas (inspire...), share and experiment with techniques (make "mistakes" frequently...) and grow in creativity together (fun light-hearted fellowship...), and to also take some time out to enjoy relaxing and being self-expressed with kindred folk (right brainers unite...). I'm looking forward to exploring possibilities with all who would like to join me. We try to meet the second Sunday of the month from 1-4:00 at a cafe for beverage/good eats/art and also at a variety of places such as local botanical gardens and arboretums for inspiration while soaking up the sun and fresh air when the weather is nice (I'm thinking picnic baskets filled with paints...). $5 fee per meeting. Please bring an unruled journal, fine tip black permanent marker, pair of scissors, simple watercolor set, nice paintbrush, and any basic drawing materials.
