Barbara is a student of Starting Your Art Journal, an e-book on using color, symbols, and shapes to explore, express, and de-stress. I’ll show you how to start and keep a meaningful, fun art journal that brings meaning and messy fun to your days. With countless step by step tutorials and nearly 50 art and writing prompts, you will have tons of ideas for expressing yourself in your art journal and finding a new language in art.
AMY: If you’ve ever gone through a period of feeling blocked or that you don’t have “permission” to make art, how did you find the courage to create again, to create beyond limitations?
