Visual Journaling

back room_at_the_coffee_house

Enjoy playing with your everyday life moments by chronicling them with words, sketches, watercolor, and collage.  Slow down the hectic, high-tech pace of life and savor those moments with visual journaling.  Splash color on a page…draw your lunch…sketch landscapes from your travels…list your groceries…write and paint your dreams.  It all goes in the story of your life, the journal you keep tucked in your pocket or bag.  Sometimes words are not enough to describe  life’s experiences and feelings—sketches and images allow us to access and express our intuition and creativity, and journaling art is playful and full of joy.

This 1-day class will acquaint you with basic techniques of sketching, pen and ink, watercolor, observation, field notes, reflective writing, using symbols and doodles, page design, and explorations into tools and art media for journaling.  

All skill levels are welcome.

It all goes in the story of your life, documented in the journal that becomes your lifelong companion.  Visual journaling combines words and images, as sometimes words are not enough to describe life’s experiences and feelings—sketches and images allow you to access and express your feelings, intuition, and creativity.
