{Art Journaling Introduction} Continual Practice

Make art. Make connections.

{Art Journaling} is incorporating visual art images with traditional journal writing. I have been journaling with art since I was 13 years old. I would incorporate ephemeras and doodling in my journal pages. I did not know there was a name for this titillating / fascinating / enchanting / mesmerizing practice of combining journal writing and visual images. Now I know. When I write, I immerse in a world of my own, of which consists of my random thoughts, hopes and dreams, anger and frustration, my life stories, my imaginations. Journal writing takes me to the paths from delightful memories keeping to digging deep into the unknown. When I create visual images alongside my writing, I feel the freedom to further delve into the subconscious, letting my story unfold itself through the use of color, texture, imageries. My Art Journal is like my best friend who never judges, she listens to my heart, she sometimes surprises me with insights into the place that my heart was at or where it needed to be. It is a mirror into my soul, while can be challenging to my notion of self, but also giving me great joy and comfort that “I” could just “be”, and that was never travelling alone.




In this 2.5-hour workshop, we will continue to explore Art Journaling methods by experimenting with various art and mixed media techniques and materials.   We will be playing with different fine art and/or craft supplies in creating a visual art journal page to connect and convey our emotions that corresponds to our journal writing.  No prior art experience required.


We have an option of using Journaling Prompts, or select your own specific theme (i.e. a personal journey) to work on in this workshop.  Remember, you always have complete freedom as to how far and deep you want to take this journaling exercise.
