ARTiculations Mixed Media Art Journaling (4wk)

Tuesdays, March 19 - April 9, 6:30-9:30pm

In this class, journalers will learn to express themselves in a space where there is no judgement, no criticism, just encouragement and exploration with a side order of fun. 

 We start with a writing prompt and a different writing technique that allows us to journal in a way that will be covered up later so no one can ever read it. Next, we will paint over our writing (again a new technique each week). Then we add collage while discussing composition, and finishing up with creative lettering. 

Journalers are free to share after each step, but are welcome, not to-this is a no rules, no mistakes, can't do it wrong art class. This is a fun class, with lots of laughing, silliness and connecting, where mistakes are encouraged, and play the goal. 

There are so many beneficial aspects of art journaling but one is that after we journal we cover up what we wrote with paint or a collage technique, allowing for freedom of expression. Another thing that is great about art journaling is that the techniques are open-ended. When I say 'put drops of paint across the top of your page,' journalers can choose whatever colour they want, no 2 pages look the same, and there is no comparing, or competition. Participants work on their pages at their own pace, resulting in an original and unique journal page each time. 

This is a wonderful class for creative people who like to explore multiple mediums, who don't like to be micro-managed in their art and who like to follow their own path. Play, experimenting and exploration is encouraged. This is not a paint this/do that art class, the aesthetic of the finished product is personal and reflective of the artist.
