Art Journaling and visual diary making.

 Creative Quote of the day.
Whatever it is that you write, putting words on the page is a form of therapy .
It is a productive way to deal with the scars and dark places from our pasts.
Self-expression is one way to lay a problem or demon to rest.
 It’s also a way to bring forth suppressed feelings and fears. It’s a way to bring a sense of resolution and a sense of satisfaction to our lives.” Diana Raab

                                                                   ART JOURNALING
These two young pupils of mine are making at least one illustration in their visual diaries  or art journals every week. 
What they come up with is so cute feel like stealing their drawings for my own paintings. 
They are so honest and free.
When theyfinish  the diary  I  am going to see if  I can turn  the illustrations into a little book for the ipad.

 Art Journaling Workshop.

Discover the joy of capturing the moments and memories which make up a life in a journal of your own making.

You will learn some simple bookmaking methods to give your journals an individual style.

Explore and play with mixed media techniques to create exciting layered backgrounds and develop your own 'voice' through the use of easy lettering tricks.

We will paint, stamp, stencil, collage and more. Using everyday objects and materials you can recycle and re-purpose them to become useful art tools.

Six weeks of fun.
