Painting & Mixed Media - Visual Journaling

A visual journal is a creative combination of diary, doodle pad, to-do list, sketchbook, and scrapbook. Visual journaling is deeply personal and meaningful, and requires no artistic training--only a playful willingness to experiment! Visual journaling also requires very few art supplies, making it a wonderfully democratic, all-access method of creative expression. In this hands-on class, participants will learn and practice the techniques of visual journaling, including creating backgrounds, transferring images, layering and mixing in ephemera, and engaging in reflective writing and drawing. Videos will demonstrate techniques and discuss the ways in which those in the teaching and caring professions use visual journaling. Participants will also gain access to identified resources and inspiration for continuing development and discovery. By the end of the five-week course, participants will have explored resources and practiced techniques for making visual journaling a personal practice, as well as identified inspiration and resources for how to incorporate visual journaling in one's own work setting.
