You Will Learn:
Week 1: Loosening Up and Trusting Your Authentic Images/ Transforming Shapes into Playful Creatures
You don’t need machine cut stamps or canned stencils to create a beautiful, healing, and expressive art journal. All of the images you need are already within you, it’s just learning how to free them and explore them.
We will do some art exercises designed to help you loosen up, “trust the process,” and “trust the image.”
Week 2: Incorporating Cloth, Thread, Beads, and Handmade Papers
You can sew on paper – either as way to attach smaller quotes or works of art – or as the center of the art piece itself. In this way, you “draw” with thread. Adding tactile elements will give your art journal a sense of adventure and an element of surprise.
Week 3: Doors, Windows, Envelopes
Doors and windows are amazing metaphors and can be used to dramatic effect in an art journal. Imagine opening a little door in the middle of a page to find a small, delicious work of art, or a small picture of someone precious to you.
Week 4: Image Transfers – My Courageous Artist –
We will create a simple paper doll using a picture of yourself (current or past) to represent your “Courageous Inner Artist.” We will use it to explore what your inner artist most needs and wants to thrive. You will find a way to express what you have taken from the group and what you would like to leave to this session of the group.
You can also click here for a little video tour through one of my journals, or here for a tutorial page to give you a taste of the sorts of things you will learn in the class.
We are going to have so much fun together! See you soon!
