Visual Journaling - Spring 2020

Registration for SPRING classes begins at noon on December 2. 

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!  In this hands-on class participants will learn and practice the techniques of visual journaling, including transferring images, layering and mixing in ephemera, and engaging in reflective writing and drawing.  Participants will also be given lots of resources and inspiration for continuing development and discovery. 

Course fee covers all supplies except a journal; participants should bring their own journal book, which can be any size version of the Moleskine Watercolor Notebook, Strathmore Mixed Media Visual Journal, or similar. 

This class may be taken for one Continuing Education Unit (CEU) and is relevant for educators of all areas and backgrounds, particularly art educators and guidance counselors.
