Whether you are new to art or have always been artistic, making an art journal is a fun way to be creative! It is a place to try out new materials, techniques, and reflect on your art and life. Some of us might need a place to unwind and release some stress right now (I know I do!). Let’s unlock our creativity together through art journaling. Each lesson will include a mini lesson from myself or a special guest teacher from the local arts community!
General supplies: If you don't have a journal or sketchbook, any assortment of papers will do! Have any art supplies or ephemera (pieces of memorabilia), magazines, etc. near by. We will use what we have on hand!
Our next session will feature a lesson from: Sabine Modder (http://www.sabinemodder.com/)
Topic: Collage Journaling with one magazine (or brochure/any ephemera)
What can you create with limited supplies? Maybe you're on the road or have very little time. All you really need is a glue stick. The adventure begins with a quest for a substrate and materials. Pick up a brochure and ephemera, head to a coffee shop and create. You'll find there is less pressure to make decisions when faced with fewer choices. Use images, cut out colours and text, make compositions that speak to you in the moment. Capture a feeling; who are in that one time and space?
-one magazine with enough colour and images to be interesting to the participant
-substrate - a piece of paper, cardstock or journal page/spread
-glue or gel medium
-scissors (or not!)
