What IS Art Journaling?
Art Journaling is the intersection of a written diary or journal, and a sketchbook. With a lot of colour. And a fundamental focus on exploration and FUN!
I offer an art journaling workshop perfectly suited to beginners who feel a call to create something, and have no idea where or how to begin. (That said, more experienced artists have enjoyed them as well.) I limit attendance to 12 participants, so I can offer the best possible support to everyone.
The emphasis is on exploring and playing, experimenting and discovering. We'll talk about the transformative power of art - how creating helps us process emotions and clear our heads and hearts. How creative expression is a potent form of self compassion.
The main focus of this art journaling workshop is to offer you an opportunity to try out a few techniques and different media and to show you that you can draw and paint and you are creative (even though right now you may seriously doubt it!)
Nowhere near as much fun as being in the room with you, the Art Journaling Video Collection offers a couple of demonstrations of techniques to create a journal page and a brief explanation of art journaling as well as a quick run through of materails and supplies.
There's also a selection of artwork from my journals in the Art Journal Collection
The Nitty Gritty:
Teaching fee: $350 per day - thats for me, not for each participant! I'm as happpy to teach a group of three as I am a group of twelve.
Travel: 60cents per km; OR airfare and connections.
Accommodation: A 5 star room in the Hilton, or a tent in the middle of nowhere - I'm flexible. I just need a comfy bed and somewhere to wash paint off my fingers. Oh, and a glass of wine as the sun sets.
Workshop Hours: 9am start, 4pm finish, with a break for lunch in the day when it suits. I'm flexible with times, and am happy for people to keep playing longer, on the understanding that by 4pm I may be brain dead, and not much good for valuable guidance!
