Art Journaling

Art journaling may not mean the exact same thing to everyone, whether it’s “dirty” or “junque” just about anything goes as long as it reflects you and your experiences. We will explore different ways of making a beautifully, satisfying art journal, beginning with creating a journal (book) ourselves. If you’ve never made a book, you’re in for a real treat. From there, we will use all the tools at our disposal- paint, pastels, collage, markers- and even make a few new ones, to have a great time building our journals. No experience necessary. 5 classes.

Wednesdays 6:30-8:30 beginning January 4, 2023
